Question about 1999 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Sensor Identification My boyfriend is changing the motor in our truck and all was going well until a sensor near the rear of the engine beside the distributor cap broke. No one is able to tell us what this sensor is so we can replace it. Can anyone help with this?

This should be the oil pressure sending unit, that was the location on the 3.9L, 5.2L and the 5.9L engines. They made other motors and sensors were in different locations, but those are a little more rare but if this is the case let me know what engine it is and I will see if I can help further.

check fuel pressure/volume, injectors, engine temp sensor for computer to know what the engine temp is, map sensor, timing, throttle position sensor. what emission did it fail might help.

Why am i getting engine code p0421 on this 2002 mitsubishi lancer?


this code is lazy cat (or weak or dead)420's are very hard to diagnose
here is the order.
1: NO EXHAUST leaks near any oxy sensor. zero, (cracks, or gaskets) any where near or upstream of any oxy sensor.!!!
2: Engine runs perfectly CEL out running and no stored or live DTCS (besides 421) and engine holds closed loop at hot idle and light flat cruise, steady right foot, if not , the CAT gets punished.
3: good front oxz sensors, a mUST.
4: AND 2nd last , new rear cat sensors (421s come from this sensor)
5: a NEW cat.

that is the crash course, can do 100s pages.
but no. just 1.

P0340 FORD - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 1Possible causes- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
- Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty starter motor
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery
P0340 FORD Description The Camshaft Position Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Engine Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The camshaft position sensor senses the retraction of camshaft (intake) to identify a particular cylinder. The camshaft position sensor senses the piston position. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor.

When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.

When the crankshaft position sensor (POS) system becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides various controls of engine parts instead, utilizing timing of cylinder identification signals.

I have a 2003 chevy malibu with 90,000 miles. i took it in for maintenance and the mechanic said that it was showing trouble code p0341. he said it was the cam sensor. yesterday when i went to start it, it...


if the cam sensor is bad, it will definitely not start. The cam shaft position sensor's function is: the engine speed and crankshaft position information is supplied frome a sensor which is usually situated at the front or rear of the crankshaft. note that distributor-located engine speed sensor are generally being replaced with crank shaft-located sensors,as worn disributor drives and associated components can effect the accuracy of the engine speed signal.

A camshaft position sensor,or cylinder identification sensor is used to determin the engine cycle position the information is used to provide individual cylinder ignition and injection cotrol.Many engine mangement systems use an inductive type of sensor that is located near the camshaft;when the camshaft rotates a single signal is passed to the ECU to indicate a reference point in the engine cycle

All ways, the camshaft position sensor signal sent to the ECM is intermittent

The Camshaft Position Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The camshaft position sensor senses the retraction of camshaft (intake) to identify a particular cylinder. The camshaft position sensor senses the piston position. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor.

When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.

When the crankshaft position sensor (POS) system becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides various controls of engine parts instead, utilizing timing of cylinder identification signals.

Check thos DTC diagnostic and possible solutions about P0344 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/Loss of Power
- Engine Stall

Possible causes
- Harness or connectors (The sensor circuit is open or shorted)
- Camshaft position sensor may be faulty
- Camshaft (Intake) may be damage
- Starter motor may be faulty
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery

Possible solution
- Charge battery
- Repair harness or connector
- Replaced Camshaft Position Sensor.
Tech notes
- Sometimes and in some models, low battery voltage or a weak starter can can trigger a Camshaft Position Sensor code.


Hope this helps.

OK, does it appear that the oil pressure sensor is leaking through the plastic to metal seam (on the sensor itself)?

Have had an oil pressure sending unit go bad and leak on a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais that needed to be replaced.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION C1500 Suburban 1994
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and drain the engine oil.
  2. Disconnect the sensor electrical lead and unscrew the sensor. The sensor can be found on the top side of the engine, near the distributor. To install:
  3. Coat the first two or three threads with sealer. Install the sensor and tighten until snug. Engage the electrical lead.
  4. Connect the battery cable and fill the engine with oil.

The crank sensor is near the harmonic balancer or the lowest pulley on the motor. Should be fairly easy to change. Camshaft sensor should be at the rear of the engine on top. Also relatively easy to change.

NOTE: The crankshaft position (CKP) sensor is mounted to the transmission bellhousing at the left/rear side of the engine block.
  1. The sensor may be mounted to the transmission with one of the following configurations:
    • One bolt: If the sensor is equipped with one mounting bolt, it is adjustable.
    • Two nuts
