I have a 1999 Chev Sub. I was told by the mechanic that the camshaft is not good and needs to be replaced. Is that normal and what would cause that.

    how many miles on it .? your right not often do they have to be changed out . You can take valve covers off and watch rockers for one not lifting as much as the others and see if you are loosing lift on one lobe of the camshaft.

Usually you will need to replace to Cam whenever you start losing Power Considerably. The Lobes on the Cam will wear down after so Many miles and will need to be Replaced. Not all that Unusual.If you have high miles and a Considerable loss of Power you need to have this done.

I have a 1999 saturn. I need to. Replace the. Camshaft. Censor


It does not have a Cam sensor. I would check for vacuum leaks around the area where the intake manifold bolts to the head. Very common for them to leak.

What is the RPM at and how long does it stay there. How long has it been doing this? Is the check engine light on?

Camshaft position sensor problems


Lets start at the beginning. I doubt the trouble code said "replace the cam sensor". It probably said there was no signal from the sensor or it was out of range.
If you replaced the cam sensor, and it was the right sensor for the code, it could be a wiring problem or something mechanical with the camshaft itself.
BTW, there are two sensors, one on each cyl head.

Hi Gohar, Very often the fault code needs to be cleared by cancelling it by using the same computer which identified the problem. Ask your mechanic to do that and then rescan. If there any other faults they will be recorded and shown in the read out. regards John

MY 1998 DODGE NEON WONT START. I WAS TOLD TO REPLACE THE CAM SENSOR AND DID SO. THE COIL WAS CHECKED AND ITS GOOD. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM


I bought one with the same problem, the mechanic chaged: camshaft sensor (it was ok), the coil pack (was ok too), the pcmodule( ok too) the arness (ok) and did not start. I checked timing belt and was ok. but wen I did the compresion test , every cilynder was too low ( 10 30 an 0), my firsth idea was head gasket replecement,and wen was remooving the camshaft sprocket Bingo: the small pin was broken (that means that the camshaft sprocket was not align in time) Had to chage the head an the camshaft both in terrible shape. bad lobes and cam bearings worn out. wen I crancked it start at the first time. PD. the head wasnt craked, the head gasket was good too and the valves ok .

Check engine light is on. Code is related to camshaft position sensor. Where is the sensor located on a 1999 BMW 323is?


This is a normal problem and you need to replace it asap. The camshaft position determines when top dead center compression of the #1 cylinder occurs and the convertsit into a pulse signal that is sent to the pcm , then the pcm uses it to determine the correct injection sequence.

Distributor assembly/camshaft sensor for 2000 Grand Voyager


You can replace just the cam sensor, I've done it, but it's kind of a delicate job. You have take apart the distributor to do it, it's not hard to do, you just have to have a little mechanical aptitude. If he's intimidated by this type of thing, you can always get a used one. I think I could probably buy a whole van for $1200.
