Question about 2006 Chevrolet Aveo
Car runs fine, but check engine light is on constantly, code of p0315, crankshaft position sensor, there is a lot of oil on this area of motor, pulled sensor, coated with oil,cleaned it off, light blinked off but is in constant again... help
I took it in to a different mechanic and am told that the car will not "learn" the cps. It will clear the CEL but as soon as the key is put in the ignition it comes back on He suggested putting in the original crank sensor but that one is cracked so do I need to get an ac/delco or gm sensor instead of what I got from autozone or how do I get it to recognize the sensor we put in?
We did check the fuses and that is not the problem.

It needs a code scanner hooked up to it,to tell you why the light is on and the cause. If there is an autozone near you take it there or
call different auto part stores to find out if they do that.Without getting the code, it's just guessing what the problem is.

have 'sort of' the same [problem on wifes car. it lost power while driving and she had to pull over and shut the car off and restart it.
I pulled the codes with a OBD2 scanner and came up with 3 codes, P2106, P2110 and P2135.
Last one is for Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/switch A/B voltage Correlation, figure that must be the TPS as its known. Checked on line for it and found several for around, get this, 181 dollars!!!!
Other codes were for Throttle Acuator Control System Forced Limited RPM.
So I'm figuring a new TPS "might" fix the problem but $180 is not easy to let go of but may have to.
First, do as first post says, or take it to a Checker or AutoZone or someone like that in your area and have them run the OBD2 scanner on it to see what codes your car throws, then you have an "idea" of what may be wrong, sometimes those codes will not send you to the correct area. Just replacing sensors can get expensive only to find out it is caused by a vacuum leak or throttle body is bad (those are real pricey).
Check with someone that get retrieve the codes for free first.

It has to do with engine valve seating problems.

when your engine went into that 5 second sputter,
your computer or "PCM" did not get a constant signal from the crank or cam sensors that the engine was running.
These two sensors tell the computer what RPM the engine is turning so it can adjust fuel and spark.

There is a special socket for O2 sensors which allow the wires to stick out and not get twisted up. It's not expensive and available at most auto parts stores. Disconnect the sensor from the wiring harness, with the plug and then use the socket to remove and replace the new sensor. Re-connect electrical plug.
Please rate this answer. Thank you.
