Are you sure the vibration is from the engine? Maybe it's the u-joints or center bearing. But if it's from the engine, your engine mounts may need replacing. If those are ok and it is your crank or cam, then you need an engine overhaul.

My check engine light is on and I've been told it is the cam sensor, but I can't find one. It's a 2005 nissan altima. Do they have a cam sensor and a crank sensor?


This engine has both. Nissan recommends replacing them at the same time, I think your local Nissan dealer will tell you the same thing.The cam and crank sensors are in the rear of the engine.Looking from the drivers fender find the right rear corner of the valve cover and look straight down the back of the head. the cam sensor is 3-4 inches down from the valve cover gasket surface.the crank sensor is basically straight down from the cam sensor but much harder to see. it is just above the oil pan gasket surface...

When you start the engine runs fine at idle but when you increase the RPM to 2000 you will hear a knocking sound from the engine.It sounds like the cams or the crankshaft. The engine was not running for...


Crank and cam make different noises when going bad, however if the crank is bad it will knock all the time even at idle. From what you told me it seems like the lifters are not making pressure, after all the car was sitting for 4 years. What you can do is to drain some of the engine oil about a quart, then fill it with some trans oil yep I said tranny fluid and let it run for about half an hour. This will wash out the lifters and hopefully take care of your problem. Oh, don't forget to drain and fill the oil again after noise goes away.
