You should check thermostat and if thats not it you need to check for a head gasket issue. If you have been running it while overheating you could have done permanent damage to the heads themselves.

SOURCE: check engine light code on for engine coolant

Check continuity of the sensor wire. It should run between pin #4 (check manual (chilton better than haynes for electrical) for location as sometimes there are design changes) of the black harness plug on the computer to the sensor. The other sensor wire is shared with the cps and tps sensors, so if you don't see problem readings with those that wire is likely good.
Also, make sure that you have no air in the cooling system or as it passes the sensor it can mess with the readings. Run the engine with the system open and the heat on high....I like doing this with the front of the vehicle either jacked up slightly or pointing up-hill... run a complete "cycle" from cold to operating temp and add coolant as needed.
Hope this helps!

Replace timing belt on 2005 neon and now have codes for fuel trim issues


I would say there is a good chance one of the cams is off a tooth or two.
The cam can be off enough to cause the cam sensor to send the wrong signal to the computer but the engine will still run.

WHER IS THE WATER PUMP


Try Chilton's or All Data for instructions. This is a 4.5 -5 hour ordeal for a professional and a 2 day mess for an amateur. Plus you must remove the timing belt on the 2.4L 4 Cylinder to get to the pump. Mess up here and you can damage your engine. WATER PUMP is sign with the ITEM 5 in the next diagram...

zjlimited_152.gif


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
This procedure requires removing the engine timing belt and the auto tensioner. The factory specifies that the timing marks should always be aligned before removing the timing belt. Set the engine at TDC on No. 1 compression stroke. This should align all timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket and both camshaft sprockets.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle to a level that allows access from above and below.
  2. Remove the right inner splash shield.
  3. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  4. Place a drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain the cooling system.
  5. Support the engine using a floor jack and block of wood, then remove the right motor mount.
  6. Remove the timing belt, tensioner and camshaft sprockets.

WARNING With the timing belt removed, DO NOT rotate the camshaft or crankshaft, or damage to the engine could occur.

  1. Remove the rear timing belt cover to access the water pump.
  2. Remove the water pump attaching bolts.
  3. Remove the water pump.
zjlimited_153.gif


Fig. 1: Water pump location on the cylinder block-4-cylinder engines





Fig. 2: Water pump assembly-4-cylinder engines


To install:

  1. Thoroughly clean all sealing surfaces. Replace the water pump if there are any cracks, signs of coolant leakage from the shaft seal, loose or rough turning bearings, a damaged impeller or sprocket, or a loose or damaged sprocket flange.
  2. Install a new rubber O-ring into the water pump.
Make sure the O-ring is properly seated in the water pump groove before tightening the screws. An improperly located O-ring may cause damage to the O-ring and cause a coolant leak.

  1. Install the water pump and tighten the bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
  2. Using a cooling system pressure tester, pressurize the cooling system to 15 psi and check for leaks. If okay, release the pressure and continue the engine assembly process.
  3. Rotate the water pump by hand to check for freedom of movement.
  4. Install the rear timing belt cover.
  5. Install the camshaft sprocket(s), timing belt and tensioner. DO NOT allow the camshafts to turn while the sprocket bolts are being tightened, in order to maintain timing mark alignment.

WARNING Do not attempt to compress the tensioner plunger with the tensioner assembly installed in the engine. This will cause damage to the tensioner and other related components. The tensioner MUST be compressed in a vise.

  1. Install the timing belt covers.
  2. Install the right engine mount bracket and engine mount.
  3. Remove the floor jack and wood block from underneath the engine.
  4. Install the crankshaft damper.
  5. Install the right inner splash shield.
  6. Lower the vehicle.
  7. Install and tension the accessory drive belts.
  8. Refill the cooling system using the correct quantity and type of coolant. Bleed the cooling system.
  9. Start the engine and check for proper operation.
  10. Check and top off the cooling system, if necessary.
2.5L Engine
See Figures 3 through 7

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain the engine coolant.
This procedure requires removing the engine timing belt and the auto tensioner. To help assure proper alignment at assembly, it may be helpful to set the engine at TDC on No. 1 compression stroke. This should align all timing marks on the crankshaft sprocket and both camshaft sprockets.

  1. Remove the accessory drive belts and crankshaft damper.
  2. Remove the right engine mount. This requires safely supporting the engine with a floor jack and wood block so the mount can be removed.
  3. Remove the timing belt covers.
  4. Remove the timing belt and tensioner.

Fig. 4: Pull the water pump assembly off of the engine and inlet pipe



Fig. 5: Open the water pump housing and examine for cracks or damage



Fig. 6: Replace the water pump housing gasket using a scraper tool



Fig. 7: Always keep the water pump's mounting bolts lined up with their correct mounting holes



  1. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  2. Separate the water pump from the water inlet pipe and remove the pump.
To install:

  1. Thoroughly clean all sealing surfaces. Inspect the pump for damage or cracks, signs of coolant leakage at the vent, and excessive looseness or rough turning bearings. Any problems require a new pump.
  2. Install a new O-ring on the water inlet pipe. Wet the O-ring with water to make installation easier. DO NOT use oil or grease on the O-ring.
  3. Install a new gasket on the water pump and fit the pump inlet opening over the water pipe. Press the assembly together to force the pipe into the water pump.
  4. Install the water pump-to-engine bolts and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  5. Install the timing belt and timing belt tensioner. Set the timing belt tension.
  6. Install the timing belt covers. Install the right engine mount. Remove the floor jack and engine block from underneath the engine.
  7. Install the crankshaft damper.
  8. Install the accessory drive belts and set to the proper tension.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.
  10. Fill and bleed the engine cooling system.
  11. Start the engine and verify proper operation, with no leaks.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

Camry timing belt


Both the 2.2 Liter 4 cylinder and the 3.0 Liter V6 have a cam belt that must be replaced every 60,000 miles. The cam belt also drives the water pump and for this reason I recommend you replace the cam belt at 120,000 miles when you replace the cam belt the second time. Neither engine is an interference engine.

What type of maintenance my car would need after 90,000 miles


There is no special service needed at 90,000 miles other than the normal Air Filter & Cabin Filter replacement every 30,000 miles. Inspect all drive belts and hoses. You do need to replace Brake Fluid every 3 years independent of mileage. At 110,000 miles replace the spark plugs on a 4 cylinder, 105,000 on a V6. Replace engine coolant at 120,000 or 10 years on both engines. Replace A/T fluid at 60,000 miles. On the V6 at 105,000 miles replace the Cam belt and Water Pump. The 4 cylinder has a chain that you replace when it is noisy or you cannot keep the engine in time.

Got a code for cam piston sensor


that would be camshaft position sensor....that is alot of money for a water pump and belt. your car came with either a 2.5 litrev6 or 2.4 litre 4 cylinder. the v6 is expensive to put the belt,but not the 4 cylinder.depending on when the belt was changed,suposed to be 58000 miles,that means 116000 is the next one due.get a second opinion
