SOURCE: Where is the camshaft position sensor located in a 2001 VW Passat

when you are looking at the engine pull off the plastic cover on top then the front cover that covers you timing belt there is a wire harness tha goes right to it in the left upper coner two ten mil bolts and it comes off careful not to drop bolts down in belt that could be bad. it is that easy

Engine codes p0011 & P0034 on my 2001 VW passat I replaced the camshaft positioning sensor and not did not fix the problem can anyone help?


Well code 11 means the computer thinks the cam timing is too far advanced, which could be a timing belt issue.
Code 34 is supposed to be a problem with the turbo if your car has one.
Trouble codes seldom mean a sensor has failed.

2009 VW PASSAT 2.0 REPLACED ENGINE NOW CAM SENSOR OUT OF RANGE. WILL OUT START, ACTS AS IF OUT OF TIME, REPLACED CAM SENSOR


there mayb more to it--if u didnt change computer-may not b compatible n u need to flash or reprogram it----the sensor u bot mite b aftermarket and not like original--crank sensor also has to du with startin---a data stream run with factory gear will pinpoint issue-it shows values that a xperiencd tech will figure--private shops are best-dont go dealer--its worth the $--code readers in a parts store wont cut it

2003 vibe will not start


Do you know what Camshaft Actuator System is ?
The standard compression pressure is 1,400 kPa (203 psi).
The camshaft position (CMP) actuator system enables the powertrain control module (PCM) to change camshaft timing while the engine is running. The CMP actuator assembly (5) varies camshaft position in response to directional changes in oil pressure. The CMP actuator solenoid valve controls the oil pressure that is applied to advance or retard the camshaft. Modifying camshaft timing under changing engine demand provides better balance between the following performance concerns:
• Engine power output
• Fuel economy
• Lower tailpipe emissions
The CMP actuator solenoid valve (3) is controlled by the PCM. The crankshaft position (CKP) sensor (4) and the CMP sensor (1) are used to monitor changes in camshaft position. The PCM uses information from the following sensors in order to calculate the desired camshaft position:
• The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor
• The mass air flow (MAF) sensor
• The throttle position (TP) sensor
• The vehicle speed sensor (VSS)

This mite be something to look at , Is cam timing advanced or retarded . The ) CMP Actuator Assembly !

Code p2089 dodge sprinter 2007


DTC P2089 A - Camshaft Pos Actuator Ctrl Circ Hi Bank1
On this code the cam or crank sensor is normally the culprit. I would replace the crankshaft position sensor. There is anothe possible sensor that can cause this to happen vehicle speed sensor and engine coolant temp sensor. The way it works is The ECM receives signals such as crankshaft position, camshaft position, engine speed, and engine coolant temperature. Then, the ECM sends ON/OFF pulse duty signals to the intake valve timing control solenoid valve depending on driving status. This makes it possible to control the shut/open timing of the intake valve to increase engine torque in low/mid speed range and output in high-speed range. But the most common problem is the cam or crank sensor Start with the crankshaft sensor and then camshaft sensor.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Camshaft position sensor a bank 1 ckt range/performance 1996 vw jetta 2.0l what does that meen ?


It basicall means you got that camshaft a little bit out of sync.If it a twin cam or a singke overhead cam what it relates to is the position in relation to the crank both have sensors the crank moves the pistons up and down and the cam opens and closes the valves and in that car drives the distrubitor . So the spark along with the opening and closing of the valves is to early or to late. I know you dont eant to but remove the timing belt covers and turn the crank to TDC ( top dead center) look at your cam timing marks ill bet they aren't exactly where they should be. Line those up and erase those trouble codes and reset the check engine light youll be good to go

I have a 2003 chevy malibu with 90,000 miles. i took it in for maintenance and the mechanic said that it was showing trouble code p0341. he said it was the cam sensor. yesterday when i went to start it, it...


if the cam sensor is bad, it will definitely not start. The cam shaft position sensor's function is: the engine speed and crankshaft position information is supplied frome a sensor which is usually situated at the front or rear of the crankshaft. note that distributor-located engine speed sensor are generally being replaced with crank shaft-located sensors,as worn disributor drives and associated components can effect the accuracy of the engine speed signal.

A camshaft position sensor,or cylinder identification sensor is used to determin the engine cycle position the information is used to provide individual cylinder ignition and injection cotrol.Many engine mangement systems use an inductive type of sensor that is located near the camshaft;when the camshaft rotates a single signal is passed to the ECU to indicate a reference point in the engine cycle

Where is the location of crankshaft sensor in VW passat,1995,2,8?


OPERATION
The crankshaft position sensor detects gaps in the sensor ring corresponding to TDC of each cylinder. The sensor uses a permanent magnet, core and coil. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. This in turn varies the voltage signal to the ECM. The ECM uses the signals for ignition timing and fuel synchronization.
TESTING
Audi A4 2.8L
  1. Disconnect the electrical harness connector.
  2. Switch the DMM to its resistance range and connect it between the CKP sensor connector terminals 1 and 2 , using jumper wires from VW 1594 test kit. The DMM should show approximately 1,000 ohms.
  3. If the specified value is not obtained, replace the crankshaft position sensor.
  4. If the specified value is obtained, connect the DMM between terminal 1 and 3 (GND), then between terminals 2 and 3 (GND). The DMM should show infinite ohms (open).
  5. If the specified value is not obtained, replace the crankshaft position sensor.
  6. If the specified value is obtained, check the wiring for continuity or short between crankshaft position sensor and ECM, using a wiring diagram.
  7. Connect a VAG 1598/19 test box to the ECM harness connector.
  8. Check the CKP sensor shielding for continuity by connecting a DMM between terminal 3 and engine ground (GND). The DMM should show a maximum of 1 ohm.
  9. Check the wiring for continuity between the CKP sensor connector terminal 1 and the test box socket A9 , then between the CKP sensor connector terminal 2 and test box socket A10 . There should be a maximum of 1 ohm.
  10. If the specified values are not obtained, check and eliminate any short or open circuits in the wiring.
  11. If the wiring is OK, replace ECM.

Passat 2.8L
  1. Disconnect the harness connector from the crankshaft position sensor.
  2. Switch the DMM to its ohms range.
  3. Connect the DMM to terminals 1 and 2 of CKP sensor harness, using adaptor leads from VW 1594 adaptor kit.
  4. Resistance between terminals 1 and 2 must be 500-700 ohms.
  5. Connect the DMM to terminals 1 and 2 , then 1 and 3 of the CKP sensor harness, using adaptor leads from VW 1594 adaptor kit.
  6. The resistance must be infinite ohms.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the electrical connector from the sensor.
  2. Remove the crankshaft sensor retaining bolt and remove the sensor.
  3. Replace the O-ring and lightly lubricate it with clean engine oil.
Installation is reverse of removal.

---
To remove the sensor:

  • Disconnect the wiring harness.
  • Unbolt the sensor mounting bolt.
If the crankshaft timing sensor or the camshaft reference sensor is removed, follow this procedure when the sensor is replaced:
  • Thoroughly clean the sensor tip and install a new spacer on the sensor tip. New sensors should be supplied with the spacer installed.

Spacer on crankshaft timing sensor and camshaft position sensor.

  • Install the sensor until the spacer lightly touches the sensor ring, and tighten the sensor mounting bolt 105 in.lb.
---
Look for the sensor on the axis of the crankshaft near either end of the engine.

Good luck on locating this sensor.
