Where is the crankshaft sensor location on lanos 2001 ? I changed my camshaft position sensor and the timing belt, but the engine light still on with the same code and the mechanic said it's the...


both the single cam and twin cam engines use the teeth on the crank pulley for crankshaft sensor which is bolted in bracket attached to block near oil pressure switch, hopefully you didnt dent(bent) teeth on crank pulley from dropping it or putting pulley down a bit roughly because they bend really eazy.
also is the crank pulley bolted up in correct position?
is the timming belt tension correct from when you did cam belt?
if tension wrong or timming out by a tooth it will set crank sensor codes, even possibly cam sensor codes and if you get timming out more than 3 teeth either way(advanced or ********) you will bend valves.

How to replace a broken timing belt for a 1998 daewoo lanos?? Would there be any head damage?


yes it is quite possible that valves are bent if the cam belt broke or teeth stripped off of old belt, which unfortuneately means removing the cylinder head and getting it repaired (valves replaced and possibly guides) see some of my other posts for cam belt timming marks locations etc...
depending what motor is in your vehicle twin cam or single?

Hello emissionwiz it looks that you know about this vehicle. I just purchased a Daewoo Lanos 2001. They advised me that the timing belt broke and that the tension pulley broke. I went to a u pull yard and...


if the timming belt broke when the engine was running most of the time the valves get bent and leak (head off repair) you could check this once you have replaced the belt before you start remove rocker cover and check for gaps between cam lobe and valve bucket when lobe is not pushing bucket down if there is a gap valve is bent.
these vehicles came out with a single cam or twin cam engine also so which one have you got?
valves bent on both engines when belt broke while running

on single cam engines you lock the tensioner with pin and loosen water pump and turn to obtain correct belt tension then release lock pin in tensioner and check that marks on tensioner align up if not turn water pump to get correct. some times this then causes the seal on the water pump to fail if its been there for some time because they corrode in block and its only a "O" ring so you might need a waterpump and "O" ring and coolant use grease on waterpump and "O" ring to make sealing and turning if needed eazier.

ifyou need any more info let me know even if twin cam can send pics also

Hi there, i was w0ndering when do you change the timming belt on the fx 35 infiniti 2006??


The engine used in the FX 25 is Nissan's VQ35DE, 3.5 L Twin cam.....same as used on the pathfinder, and good news for you, no timing belt....only timing chain.......whihc means it shoud never have to be replaced, unless noisy or breaks (which never happens)

Hey guys I need to get changed the timming belt on my hyundai accent 1995 and I can do it myself but don´t have the timming marks diagram, can you please help me?


if its a single cam the marks should be on the backing plate and if it is twin cam the two marks should face each other on the compression stroke of the number 1 cylinder and the same goes for single cams line the mark up with the backing plate in the compression stroke of number 1 cylinder.

If it is the single overhead cam engine,it's pretty straight forward-Crank-tensioner- cam.The tensioner is a simple slide-to-tension type.You will need to take off the top engine mount for access(i just supported the engine with a jack)If it's a twin cam?Sorry don't know as mine is single cam.(obviously all air con belts,altenator belt etc have to be removed first)
