Question about Cars & Trucks
I replaced the #2 camshaft position sensor to remove the check engine light. I started the car without any problems and drove it for approximately 20 miles. Once I restarted the car the check engine light came on again. The diagnostic tool told me once again I have to change the same sensor. I have replaced this sensor twice and still experienced the same problem. Do you know if there is something I am missing? I have read in some forums of people changing all camshaft crankshaft sensors and would greatly appreciate some advice before doing so.

this problem could be caused by the mass air flow censor, i had the same problem with my car. it is really pricey at the dealer so you might want to check elsewhere for this part. I found one at a scrap yard for 85% less that the dealer and i also got life time warranty, the dealer does not offer any warranty on this part.

difficult to diagnose withoutcar in front of me,best advice is what i said to another woman with a merc--get dolled up to nines and go to a local repair shop and start crying ,always works unless your unlucky enough to get a *** mechanic,and after 40yrs in trade their are not many *** mechanics that i have worked with,weird ones yes but ***?? Or take vehicle to nissan agent as the mechanics their will have product knowledge of the make and should be able to diagnose it in seconds.This is favourite of mine and that is if a particular model is playing up i will try to get into workshop to ask mechanics ,failing which i wait in local cafe at breakfast time and try to collar one their.

In the kit there are two sensor that look identical. The one for the crankshaft has a white paint mark on it near the bolt hole. Make sure that it is in the right location.
