Actually, On 2006 vehicles the camshaft position sensor senses the TDC point of the number one cylinder, on its compression stroke. Its signal is relayed to the ECM to be used to determine the sequence of fuel injection. The Crank sensor is used to determine RPM ranges The crankshaft position sensor consists of a magnet and coil. The voltage signal from the sensor is relayed to the ECM to indicate engine rpm and the position of the crankshaft. This sensor wouldn't affect your performance but, the Cam sensor will if its damaged. To answer you question correctly, it would be the cam sensor i would check. it actually controls the injection system. if damaged, it will cause performance issues. On 2006 vehicles the crankshaft position sensor is located next to the radiator hose inlet and outlet assembly. On 2006 vehicles, the camshaft position sensor is located on top of the engine, on the engine head cover.

How do i get rid of engine code 13 on my 1992 Lexus LS400


You change no parts

The only parts that get replaced, are
those that fail a test

Have a repair shop take over & find a problem
thru proper testing vs: a wish & hope strategy
on a guess, by replacing good parts

Where should i start my troubleshooting for engine trouble code 13 on my 1992 Lexus LS400. i've already checked most of the connecters & wire harnesses & they seem to be ok.


Hi Tony, Trouble code thirteen is referring to the RPM signal.circuitry. It can relate to the crank or cam pick up sensors and be a poor connection, but will normally make it difficult for the engine to start once switched off. Check all connections plug coil connections and cam and crank, one or more may simply be loose. and depending how you went over the humps, may simply be disconnected, but unplug and replug each. Appearances can be deceptive. Regards John

Trouble code P0320 ignition/dist. engine speed input circuit


P0320 - Ignition / distributor engine speed circuit malfunction

The ignition engine speed sensor input signal to Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module (ECM) is continuously monitored. The test fails when the signal indicates that 2 successive erratic profile ignition pickup (PIP) pulses occurred.

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 stall

When is the code detected?
The P0320 code is triggered when 2 successive erratic PIP pulses are detected.

Possible Causes:
- Loose wires/connectors
- Faulty Crank Position Sensors
- Arcing secondary ignition components (coil, wires and plugs)
- Low battery charge
- Powertrain Control Module

Possible Solutions:
- Resecure loose wire or connectors
- If battery charge is low, recharge or replaced battery
- Replaced crank position sensor
- Replaced starter motor


Test it and tell us news.

Got in and started like normal, a tiny twist and it starst right up like always. Go 50 feet and start over a speed bump and it died with nonoise or warning. No spark anymore


do you still have power? if no check for loose battery cables or main fuse
If yes do you get spark ?if no check for pulse on crank angle sensor with a lab scoope ,but you can test both wires going to the coil check for a pulse while cranking
now check for all grounds on body
check for fuel relay maybe grounding

Went over a speed bump lost power.now won"t start.engine turns over but no spark.ckecked sensor plug-all ok


Not sure which sensor you are referring to but I would check the crankshaft sensor which is located in the transmission bellhousing where it meet the engine. It is adjustable and it could have come loose. The sensor "reads" a tone wheel that is part of the flywheel. If the gap is to wide it cant read the tone wheel and output to the computer the proper signal to fire the coil.

I went over a speed bump really hard yesterday and caused the motor to fall, we screwed it back in and now the car doesn't want to start. What could it be?


Really hard? sounds like you knocked things loose, maybe the wire to the starter soleniod fell off, or the crank angle sensor, look closely at all the wires, and make sure you didn't damage anything alse before you get out on the road with it. Hope this he!lps

Sounds like your car doesn't like bumps!

The abs control modules on these fail regularly due to breaks in the circuit board solder joints. It could be that hitting the bump make the fault occur. There are places that will repair them, however you will need to remove it, or have it removed and send it to them to fix it, or you can replace it.

Either way, you'll need to get the problem diagnosed first., starting by reading out the faults in all the systems. The transmission, cruise control and speedometer all rely on a vehicle speed sensor signal from the abs module, so that is why so many systems are affected.
