I have had this before it is best to change the cam and crank sensors as a pair. as a week sensor will affect the other sensor.and give a false code. as these work together. it is best to change both at the same time. i changed the crank on mine after the cam and it sorted it out. crank sensor is located near to the thermostat and under the exhaust manifold. make sure you tuck the wire away from the exhaust manifold . other end of the wire is fitted to the under neath of the injector cover and is cliped in place very easy to replace

SOURCE: 2005 Dodge Stratus ? Camshaft Position Sensor causing problems (I

I had the same problem with my '05 Stratus SXT 2.4 DOHC. I've replaced the cam pos sensor and it seems to be running fine right now. On the Dodge forums a lot of the guys say that you need to replace the crank pos sensor too. I've bought one of those just in case it comes back again. Hope this helps.

try lifting the brake pedal with your toes then switching on the cc when driving. sometimes a faulty or loose switch on the brake pedal can cause cc to cut out.

Try and clean the throttle body. Carbon will gum up on the blade and the vaccume passages, which will cause a surge and stall.

What is fault code po052


p0052 , vauxhall. no year???????????????,
my guess, no vaux, here. in usa.
is bad oxygen sensor heater (10x burned off wires)
is this a v6?
Bank2, sensor 1, heater.
a real FSM tells you the exact meaning per engine, not much else will.

or B2S1 we call it.
bank 2 is that bank that is on the #1 cylinder side.
here ill google this (me dumb using google lies)lol
3rd hit.
http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/showthread.php/571072-List-of-Fault-codes-and-how-to-check-for-them

diesel.
a Fiat GM engine.
The most common JTD engine is the 1.9 L (1,910 cc, 82 mm bore, 90.4 mm stroke) straight-4 found on various brands and models.

must be Vectra -C (gen)
The four-cylinder diesel engine was replaced in 2004 by a Fiat-designed 1.9 litre Ecotec CDTI engine capable of producing 89 kW (119 hp) in 8v form and 110 kW (148 hp) in 16v form.[12]

OK its and I-4
so why pray tell, does and I-4 have a bank 2 (its no V6)
my wild guess, is like my JEEP I6, it has a split exhaust manfold
and 4 oxy senstors.
so on mine, B2S1 is the top, rear sensor,
B2S2 , S2 is always behind the CAT.

these odd facts, are why and FSM always wins
sorry i dont have one to prove, this. (split deal)
good luck.

Vauxhall vectra fault codes


Check all the pipes under the bonnet as a loose or damaged pipe can cause the spanner to come on without a fault code.

Fault code P2106


is it the ecotec engine fitted 1.8 or 2.0./2.2l or the diesel 1.7 engine.. how long have you not used the air con for. not using it for a long time you can damage the pump the flown sensor. even the temperature sensor. but if the engine is trying to stall with the ac on then the pump may have a fault. ac should be run for 10min once a week no matter the weather. stops you having problems later.

Water pump vauxhall vectra


defo sound like the pump has gone. is best to do the time belt at the same time save you doing it later. as when you do timing belt you need to change the water pump at the same time. if ecotec engine it is hard to get to the pump you need to unbolt the engine mounts and on a jack lift the engine up to get a bit more space to remove the pump. change the pump then put back in place and do the timing belt.
