Camshaft Position Sensor

I have a 94 Volks Jetta with the check engine light on.. It turned out to be the Camshft Position Sensor. I called the Volks Dealer and they told me that the sensor was built-in the DISTRIBUTOR ($350). Does anyone know how to do an easy fix without spending a lot of money? I was thinking Junk-yard.!! What are your suggestions?

2007 Toyota Camry ,camshaft sensor change out.Is there a requirement for any caliberation


No re-calibration is needed. If the sensor was bad, just replacing it will fix the problem. Takes a coder reader to turn off the light. Or after so many key on's the light will go out.

I doubt it as you have stated that it shows a calibration fault . This will be from the variable valve timing assembly on the cam shaft/s that is altering the valve timing. The timing chain may be faulty but you should be hearing it to be that bad.

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.

Chances are the camshaft is not bad unless it is broke or spun. I would check the cam sensor as well as its connector. If corosion is presant then replace and coat with dyeclectric grease

Camshaft position sensor a bank 1 ckt range/performance 1996 vw jetta 2.0l what does that meen ?


It basicall means you got that camshaft a little bit out of sync.If it a twin cam or a singke overhead cam what it relates to is the position in relation to the crank both have sensors the crank moves the pistons up and down and the cam opens and closes the valves and in that car drives the distrubitor . So the spark along with the opening and closing of the valves is to early or to late. I know you dont eant to but remove the timing belt covers and turn the crank to TDC ( top dead center) look at your cam timing marks ill bet they aren't exactly where they should be. Line those up and erase those trouble codes and reset the check engine light youll be good to go

On an overhead camshaft engine, look for the camshaft sensor near the end of the camshaft pulley area on the left or right side of the engine.

Camshaft Position Sensor Operation:00158_camshaft_position_sensor.jpgA magnetic or hall effect sensor. It sends a signal to the computer relaying information about shaft speed, position and acceleration or deceleration.
