Have a fault code reading done It could be any number of sensors that have failed and not necessarily the cam sensor.. If you used an after market cam sensor then not all sensors meet the settings required by the cpu to operate correctly

SOURCE: WHERE IS THE CAM POSITION SENSOR LOCATED ON A 2004 NISSAN MAXIMA

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!!!

SOURCE: car wont go into gear

Have you ever replaced the clutch? If not you may need a new cluctch. It could also be your clutch slave cylinder.

The latter is much less expensive and in some cars very easy to change (i did it myself on an old Mazda Rx-7 and I'm a girl!). Hope these suggestions help.

SOURCE: my 2004 maxima goes into 5th gear when put into

Guess what - my car did the exact same today.

I can get into any other gear BUT as soon as i put it into drive it sits in 5th. I put it in manual mode and tried to downshift but it just jerks. I checked my transmission fluid and it was just fine. I don't know what to do. I think i will have to get the transmission rebuilt.

Has there been any recall notice for this from the dealership?

SOURCE: my 98 saturn sl2 is

No - I don't believe that if you have those codes that your problem would be a head gasket. Saturns are kind-of a wierd animals. They use spark duration on the ignition coils to determine camshaft position. They don't actually have a Camshaft Position Sensor like most cars. If you are getting a Camshaft Sensor code, the most likely problem is worn out spark plugs, bad spark plug wires, a bad ignition coil, or a bad ignition module. If the vehicle has not had a tune-up in a long time, I would try plugs and wires first. If this doesn't work, I would replace the ignition coils. This will usually fix it. I have had a couple howerver, that ended up with a bad ignition module (the thing that the coils mount on) but this is somewhat rare.

Engine starts good but not gearing up


Bad news, check your transmission fluid and if it's still there check the viscosity ( thickness ) if the fluid is thin and and spells burnt. It could be yout torque converter. If the transmission doesn't engaged, it could be your torque converter, let's hope otherwise your transmission is jacked! Means $.

Why would a 98 hyundai tiburon sputter like its out of gas?


The fuel filter may need to be replaced. The parts are relatively cheap - labor may vary from 1/2 hour to an hour.

When I put my 98 Maxima in gear, it starts making a very loud noise under teh car. It will go into gear and move, but the noise will only stop if I put it in park or neutral.


If noise comes from transmission in D range -no drive.Then i thing of AT internal problem. If in D during driving then you have to check drivetrain,like axles or bearings. or AT.

check the temperature sender for your fuel and emissions (not same as sender for gauge is most cases) if fuel injected, if carburated check choke. also ensure plugs and wires are in good shape
