It indicates a problem with the cam sensor. The problem could be a defective cam sensor or it could also be the magnet attached to the cam gear that the sensor detects. They have a history of falling off after many heating and cooling cycles. If the magnet (about the size of a dime) is missing, replacing the cam sensor won't help. The magnet will need to be replaced.
Dificult to know what you mean. You didn't ask a question.
Both cam sensors are likely not defective, if their are two. Scan the ECU for codes and you will lliekly learn which on is defective. The sensors will be located close to the assocaite cam gear on each engine bank. You may have to remove a paltcis cover to access the sensor. The sensor will have a two-wire connector receptacle attached and is liekly held in place by a single 10 mm bolt. Easy to change.
A cam sensor and a crank sensor are two different sensors. How to go about changing them depends a lot on WHICH ENGINE your TrailBlazer is equipped with.
With that being said, it is also safe to assume that the cam and/or crank sensors have not been properly diagnosed to know that they in fact, need to be changed. If you had diagnosed them properly, you would know by now where they are located and would have a pretty good idea of how to get them changed.
If you are going on an assumption based on what somebody with a generic OBD code reader told you, you are probably fixing to waste your money trying to replace a part that may not be defective.
Try unplugging the cam sensor and then try to start. The cam sensor is on the underside of the passenger head towards the front of the engine. Is is accessible from under the vehicle. If it starts replace the cam sensor. Iffy it still does not start replace the crank sensor and the cam sensor.
The crank sensor is located on the passenger side of the engine block behind the starter. The starter will need to be remove to acces the sensor.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
The camshaft Position Sensor in a 2006 Kia Spectra is located in the cylinder head on the right side of the head near the front of the engine. (if you are standing at the passenger fender area, this will be on YOUR left on the side of the engine nearest the windshield.) (See Diagram)
NOTE: if you are trying to fix a cam sensor code, it should be noted that MANY cam sensor fault codes can be caused by things OTHER than a defective cam sensor. For example, loose timing belt components can cause erratic cam sensor readings and cause the computer to set a code for the cam sensor. Proper diagnosis should be performed.
On my 02 Excursion with the 7.3L Diesel, the Cam Position Sensor is located at the front bottom of the engine on the passengers side. There is one electrical pigtail plug that is attached and one bolt holds the sensor in position. It may be located in a similar location on your 05 Ex. I do not know where the crank sensor is located. I hope this helps.
Well most cam sensors are set at an exact location no adjustment, but if you havent got a repair manual for the specific car you are working on then .050 inches is normally the clearance on cam sensors. So try hat and let me know how ya did... Hope that does it for ya
