WHEN YOU STAND ON THE FRONT OF THE CAR YOU ONE IS RIGHT BELOW OF THE INTAKE WHICH IS BANK 2 OR THE ONE CLOSE TO FIREWALL , BANK 1 ONE IS ON SAME SIDE NEXT TO THE RADIATOR BUT THEY BOTH ON THE CAM RIGHT SIDE OF THE ENGINE, THE EASIEST WAY TO IDENTIFY THEM IS THAT THEIR CONNECTOR IS GREEN, ONCE YOU LOCATE THEM THE CLIP NEEDS TO BE PUSHED DOWN TOWARD THE SENSOR FOR THE CONNECTOR TO BE RELEASED, ONCE YOU REMOVE THE CONNECTOR THERE WILL BE ONLY A 10MM SCREW HOLDING THE SENSOR PULL IT OUT , THE SAME SETTING THE NEW ONE PUSH IT ALL THE WAY IN , THIGHT THE 10MM SCREW, CONNECT IT BACK AND YOU'RE DONE,BUT FOR THE ONE ON THE BACK SOMETIMES MIGHT BE NECESARY FOR YOU TO TAKE THE INTAKE OFF....HOPEFULLY IS NOT YOUR CASE....



Good luck!!! and if you need the crank for hard starting on hot/warm, it is located on the botton middle section on the transmission is the only cable that goes down to a small piece of metal and it is held by a 10mm screw only to protect the sensor, you will se the sensor once you remove that small about 6-8 inches piece of metal. Then you'll be able to unescrew the 10mm screw that holds the crank position sensor. when you pull it off you'll be able to see the fly wheel inside the transmission...



you all enjoy your rides out htere!!!

Usually in the distributor. Sometimes just cleaning the optical window will fix a rough run issue. If brown dust in there, the bearing is going. Replace entire distributor. Buy on Ebay.

Let us know what you find.

Symptoms? Codes? Why do you need to know?

Here is 2002 Quest 3.0L engineCMP. I don't have Maxima.
---------------------------------------------------

Camshaft Position Sensor

The camshaft position (CMP) sensor (Figure 1) is mounted inside the distributor housing. The CMP sensor has a rotor plate and a wave-forming circuit. The rotor plate has 360 slits for 1 degree signals and 6 slits for 120 degree signals. When the rotor plate passes between the light emitting diodes (LEDs) and the photo diode built into the wave-forming circuit, an input signal is generated and sent to the powertrain control module (PCM). This signal notifies the PCM of the engine speed at 1 degree intervals and the crankshaft position at 120 degree intervals.

It depends if the cam position sensor is the problem. Get a OBII trouble code free at Auto Zone before you start replacing any parts.

Where is the rear bank camshaft position sensor located on a 2004 Nissan Maxima DOHC 6 cylinder?


Both cam sensors are on the rear of the cylinder heads. They are located in the same place on each head. The only difference in the two sensors is one has a straight connector and the other has an angled connector because of other things that are in the way, (see diagram)
