Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2000 VW beatle showing a trouble code P0322 Speed Sensor. I checked with Ohms meter and received correct reading? Car cuts off when hot.

Trouble code P0322 on VW Bug. When checking with ohms meter it reads 1000. (Shows good) why does the car cut off when hot and will not crank until it cools down?

Speed Sensor has nothing to do with the engine cutting off
PO322 is a Generic Code for a Knock Sensor
You need to Google your codes & read up
An OHM Meter won't do anything for you on a Speed
Sensor,need a scan tool or scope
I would say you have an overheating condition to correct
& the knock sensor plays a role, wouldn't you think!

If that is what the code is showing, change the sensor.
The sensor regulates the rich/lean fuel mixture, if it's bad, it can cause problems.

SOURCE: 2003 Cuts off when hot, will not start untill cool

My 2003 nissan sentra would get hot and stall out even in middle of highway doing 70 mph. The guages would go up and down. Would not start up all the time after stalling. had to cool down first. Nissan said it was head gasket, and wanted to charge 1000.00 for the job. I took to local dealer who charged me 550.00. Works fine ever since. Nissan dealer said they do like 3 head gaskets a week on the sentras. They have crappy ones in original parts. They have not recalled though.

2003 f450 v10 6.8l wont start after sitting overnight

The difficulty factor of not being there coupled with the absence of a trouble code is high...One possible cause is a defective coolant temperature sensor which is falsely telling the PCM that the temperature is too high...See diagram below location of CTS (coolant temperature sensor) disconnect connector...set ohm meter on X10 scale (you are looking to read 6000 ohms) probes on sensor leads not connector...At outdoor temp of 70-80 degrees meter must read about 5400 ohms...If it reads 1100 ohms or less sensor is defective...test two; measure from top of negative battery terminal, with meter set the same, place other lead first on bare metal of fender;READ...Then on bare metal of engine; READ...Both readings must be less than 50 ohms...If meter reads high (1000-2000) ohms you have found the fault...Install braided ground straps from - batt to chassis and block...Let me know the results of these two basic tests...

  1. Engine coolant temperature sensor (ECT).
  1. Intake manifold air control valve assembly.
  1. Camshaft position sensor (CMP).

Vw code p0322

If the only code you get is P0322, then it is most likely the crankshaft position sensor. Prior to this code, I received the P0321. Crankshaft position sensor only cost me $15 at ebay while $170 at your local autopart stores. My problem was that my car would crank for 4 seconds then start up. Once it starts, there is a loud air suction sound. Kind of like a quiet vacuum, as if the engine is trying to get as much oxygen as it can. This was only happening in the morning, but won't happen again throughout the day. You can call it a sign that it is going to get worst.

My car has over 200k miles and this is the first time it happened. I've went ahead and replaced it considering the age of the car and the sensor looked beat. It has been 2 months so far after replacing, and no problem yet. Goodluck with yours and hoped my bad experience helped you out.

Engine temp sensor bypass or test

WHAT SIZE ENGINE???? ? 4L 2.5L????

ive seen this post many times now.and can not figure it out.
double posted.
what are you trying to do, say that first. or just ask a question
first off,what does bypass mean???? <<very confusing to me...????
This is THE ECT, the ENGINE. Coolant Temperature" sensor.

what do you wish to do with this very critical EFI sensor.???????
just test it.>
Ill guess, you have not read the FSM , as it covers that 2 ways.
the ECT can be tested 3 ways.
ill show 2
1: on car and off car.
1: on car. (is more easy. if strong back)
DMM set to RESISTANCE , aka. ohms. ohmega symbol
the DMM meter is $20 at walfart.
cold car, say at about 50f.
you unplug the ECT connector (2 pin conn)
cold engine it might read, 5000 ohm, this is good,
get engine fully hot. i use a IR pyro gun, it hit 180F or more.
and kill engine.
pull back off the ECT sensor. conn.
and it reads (2 pins 2 meter leads) about 300 ohms.
is this what you want.

first google hit on sensor , but FSM shows truth....
1st hit shows....... its a NTC thermistor with these rules.
212 farenheit 185 ohms
160 farenheit 450 ohms
100 farenheit 1600 ohms
70 farenheit 3400 ohms
40 farenheit 7500 ohms
20 farenheit 13,500 ohms
0 farenheit 25,000 ohms
-40 farenheit 100,700 ohms

the FSM is here
the 93 will be close.

click fuse system there.
click on pdf page number. 46/66 BINGO ECT TESTS>

off car tests are easy, in a pan of room temp water then hot the in
ice water.
i do 3 tests. 32F(ice) 79F (room) and 200F (near boiling)
super easy test. ask how. if any step seems confusing.

The code on my car vw new jetta 2005 its a 2.5 the codes is reading on my car p0322 and code p3081 the reading was took when my epc light came on and my engine light on and i have a oil link i smell r

code p3081 refers to engine temperature too low===causes--allow engine to warm up---cooling system fault
I would check for a thermostat stuck open

code p0322 refers to crank shaft position (CKP) sensor/engine speed (RPM) sensor--no signal===causes--wiring---CKP/RPM sensor---ECM

If a trouble code on a 2000 vw shows speed sensor and the test comes out good what is the problem

engine speed sensor could be faulty.engine speed sensor provides the ECM with a crankshaft position signal.the ECM uses the signal to determine a crankshaft reference point top dead center and calculate engine speed. engine speed sensor like the crankshaft position sensor.if sensor faulty fuel system wont work. a bad engine coolant temperature sensor will cause engine shut off when hot.

I have a 2004 VW Passat the engine light came on had it diagnosed the code is P0322 what does it mean and how is it fixed? Thanks

Symptoms- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/Loss of Power
- The engine may be harder to start
- The engine may stumble or stallPossible causes- Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor harness circuit is open or shorted
- Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor poor electrical connection
- Faulty Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor
- Faulty Crankshaft Position sensor
- Low battery charge
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)When is the code detected?The P0322 code is triggered when the Engine Control Module (ECM) detects no signal.P0322 VOLKSWAGEN DescriptionIgnition failure sensor is used to check whether the spark ignition is occurred correctly or not and also used to tachometer drive. The sensor monitors the voltage difference between a resistance which is on the battery circuit for ignition coil. When the ignition coil works properly, the electric current through the resistance is detected as voltage drop. This is confirmed for every ignition event with the crankshaft sensor and the camshaft sensor. If ECM detects a malfunction, no ignition is possible, so the engine would not start. If there is no ignition signal for a predetermined cycle for one or two ignition coils, an ignition coil circuit failure exists.

I have a 1999 VW golf 2.0 gl code P0322, P0422, and P0303 code. I need help

  • 16706 P0322 Ign./distributor Eng. Speed Inp. Circ No signal
  • 16687 P0303 Cyl. 3 Misfire Detected
  • 16806 P0422 Main Catalyst, Bank 1 Below Threshold
P0322 Could be caused by a faulty Engine Speed Sensor also known as a Crankshaft Pos./Engine Speed Sensor.

P0303 Might have a faulty #3 Fuel Injector, Faulty spark plug and/or faulty spark plug wire and connectors.

P0422 Either your front 02 sensor is faulty and/or your catalytic converter is fried and needs replacing.

sounds like when you drive for a while the car gets to op. temp then shuts down? sounds like the crank position sensor. the sensor will get hot and break connection in side of the sensor when it cools the connection is made then the car will start. If your an do it yourself guy you can check the connection your self you need to remove the sensor.And using a volt/ohm meter set on ohms connect the leads to the sensor wires you should have a reading then heat the sensor with a heat gun hair drier may not get hot enough watching the the ohm meter when the meter goes to zero or open the sensor will not start the car let cool with meter still connected watch if reading comes back if so you need to replace the sensor hope this helps
