Question about 2004 Chevrolet Venture Passanger

1 Answer

Crank shaft position sensor

Car starts sometimes and then not at other times. Service engine light test indicated crank shaft position sensor needed replaced. Called local shop wants to charge $130 to replace. Can you first of all verify if there are 2 sensors on the venture and where it is located so I can replace myself. Part is $16.99 at parts store - long way from $130 and the installation looks like a snap once you find out where it is of course.

SOURCE: 1992 chevy cavalier, 4 cyl. crank system sensor

The crank sensor is under the oil sending unit on the back of the motor next to the firewall. It is held in the block by an 8mm bolt. It has to be removed from under the car. Get under the car on the RH side and get back far enough that you can see over the transaxle. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Rebuilt my 454 engine, installed distributor with

The ignition timing is not adjusted with a timing light or with the engine running, and to set the ignition timing follow these procedures.

There is a mark or notch on the distributor housing that the rotor should be pointing to when the engine is on TDC. (Top Dead Center) This "Static" timing is all that matters and the computer will be able to control the timing as long as the ignition rotor is in that position when the engine is at TDC.

1. Place the engine at top dead center.

2. Look under the distributor cap and find where the number one terminal runs under the distributor cap, and where that position on the distributor cap corresponds with the distributor housing, and it should match up to a mark or a notch on the distributor housing (usually has a #6 for 6 cylinder engines or a #8 for 8 cylinder engines) indicating the number one TDC alignment position.

3. With the engine on top dead center the ignition rotor should be pointing to the number one TDC alignment mark or notch that is on the distributor housing, if it is not then loosen up the distributor and turn the distributor until the ignition rotor is pointing to and aligned with the TDC alignment mark or notch on the distributor housing and then tighten down the distributor, the engine should now be "Static" timed. (The more precise that you are aligning the TDC alignment mark with the ignition rotor the better the engine will run, and it will be less likely that there will be a camshaft to crankshaft correlation problem)

If the distributor can not be turned enough to align the ignition rotor with the number one TDC alignment mark on the distributor housing, or the distributor does not set properly and will not allow the installation of the spark plug wires then the distributor is not installed correctly and is most likely a tooth off and it will need to be re-installed correctly. (The distributor should set like it is shown in the firing order diagram when it is properly installed)

Here is a firing order diagram to also help assist you.

Why does my truck crank fine and run good except for a hard random miss every so often while driving down the road?


You'll probably need a shop to check it out.
The code for the cam sensor usually means the computer is not getting a signal, or it is not in sync with the crank. Since you replaced the sensor, the problem could be the cam or the circuit between the sensor and the engine computer.
There is a flow chart with tests to run for each trouble code.

99 GMC suburban 5.7l P1345 wont start/misfire


The primary intent of this code is to detect slipped camshaft timing. Have you checked the camshaft timing? Your symptoms indicate you are a tooth off.

My 98 sunfire starts then stalls after 2 minutes then every time i start it it stalls sooner i replaced the fuel pump and filter no codes are showing any ideas


This is most likely your crank position sensor.... it sits behind your harmonic balancer and tells the PCM what position the crank shaft is at at all times. These sensors aare around 30 dollars at a local parts shop but you will need a pulley puller and a good impact wrench to remove the balancer

Check engine light came on, computer scan indicated the cam shaft sensor was bad, changed the cam shaft sensor 3 times and the engine is still studdering and trying to stall. now the computer scan is...


cam sensor it also linked to the crank sensor usually if the cam sensor fails around the same time the crank can become un synced with the replacement. or the new sensor is not the correct one, ie sensor from a 1998 model will sometimes work on a 2005 model if it has the same ecu fitted in the 2005 not the hole ecu but the chip. on the cam sensor there is say in some cases 3 poles positive feed negative and then signal. on all the poles there is a resistance between poles that the ecu reeds. it reads the voltage being used and the signal its receiving if one of these is wrong but it detects one of the readings being right it will think the other sensor is wrong. and thats a mis match. the resistance changes over time.

Car would not start, after siiting for an hour it did start .


mcdevito75 here, BEST BET, let the shop do this work, too many un forseen problems could come up. The stalling and unable to start for a while could also be a bad ignition module, no test for this part, but I would have it changed, for if it is a bad ignition module, all this other work will not fix the stalling and later start of your car.

My 94 jeep grand cherokee has no spark or fuel to the engine. the check engine light will not come on and the security system doesnt work. gas down the throtle boy doesnt let it start.


1-check fuses if fuses ok go number 2.
2-check for power to the crank shaft sensor (test light) for a positive if no positive replace asd relay.
if you got power to sensor check for signal while cranking on the engine (connect the test light to (+) on battery if no signal replace the sensor. hope this helps.

Replacing a camshaft position sensor on a 1998 cutlass


The cam sensor is integrated with the crank shaft sensor behind the crank shaft pulley. The 3.1 runs 2 crank sensors. the one behind the crankshaft pulley in integrated to act as a cam sensor. It has 2 sets on rings for that sensor, 1 is in use accustomed for the fuel timing
Good luck and hope this helps friend.
