Camshaft position sensor gives the position of cam related to the engine crankshaft which is useful for the fuel supply; ignition, injection, valve opening and closing system. Magnetic type sensor is used on the timing cover over the camshaft gear. Camshaft position sensor is same as that of crank shaft speed sensor in terms of construction and working. (Source:

How do i time the cam sencer witrh the crank sencer ?

your question is realy garbled but I think you are asking about the timing of the cam and the crank sensors usually you have to have them both replaced at same time which means you can see the NO1 position on the cam and the position of the crank and thats with the cover off but I found out from another friend that if you go onto YouTube and request How To set timing on the Cam shaft and Crank shaft sensors you will get a video. MAKE SURE YOU SPELL IT ALL RIGHT OTHERWISE YOU WILL NOT FIND IT. Sorry about the Caps but wanted your attention use my spelling. Good Luck

Cam shaft position sensor 350z

The Cam Shaft Position is behind the motor on passenger side and has a green cap with 2 little wires going to it .with a 10 mm bolt to take out now what most people on here did not tell is that it was hard to take the green cap off the sencer first because the clip is on the bottom so you cant see it to take it off and if you just try to take a flat head screw driver to it you will bust your green take the sencer and cap off together and then take the green cap off after you get the sencer out .ok when you take the 10mm bolt out then you can reach down and pull the sencer out but its pretty hard just to pull out your going to want to twist it but you dont have to you are just pulling against the rubber O ring thats on the sencer just pull hard and it will come out.then pull the cap off .you acually push in on the clip towards the sencer to get it off ,not down ,but towards the bolt hole ,to take off,repalce clip put new sencer on and put sensor in motor,dont wiggle around on the wires to much because they are little and I could see braking one if not both

the cam sensor will keep the vehicle from starting, so if its starting then I doubt its a sensor problem unless there is a pinch in the wire, grounding out somewhere. but this will kill the engine as soon as it happens. and also a bad o2 sensor will only make the engine use more fuel, and kick on the service light... does it have a ticking noise, some of the early 5.4 in the f150 had a TSB for the cam phasers, which gave a p code for the cam sensor, and for some reason spit one for the bank 1 sensor as well. this is an ongoing problem with these 3 valve OHC 5.4 engines, I would suggest taking it to the dealer. im sorry I could not be of more help, but like I said this is an ongoing problkem I still have been tinkering with.

Ok i have a cam sencer problen have replace sencer and magnet it still cuts the car off and showes the same code

Try replacing the "Crank Shaft Position Sensor" this two sensors "Cam" and "Crank" communicate so if one is acting up it sends the wrong signal to the computer, I recently had the exact same problem but in reverse and a different vehicle, the other thing, although not very usual is the wire harnnes that connects to the sensor itself could not be working properly. Good Luck!

Crank shaft sesor/cam sensor problem?

If you had a fault with the crank sencer your car would not start.Sounds like the air flow meter is giving you the problems.

97 t 100 wont start after replacing cam shaft senser

Try old one back on. If it fires, your new one may be defective.It may be the positioning of the sensor, some are very touchy with being in the exact spot, or real close.Did you make sure it's back to where original position was?
