Question about Lexus RX 300
Hi, My RX 300 (2002 model) engine light is on with VSC and ABS. The car surging "RPM" The code is sensor says Camshaft sensor to be replaced. I have replace the camshaft sensor, Idle Air Control Valve all 3 O2 sensors in the past month. I need your help
Lets start at the beginning. I doubt the trouble code said "replace the cam sensor". It probably said there was no signal from the sensor or it was out of range.
If you replaced the cam sensor, and it was the right sensor for the code, it could be a wiring problem or something mechanical with the camshaft itself.
BTW, there are two sensors, one on each cyl head.

The best thing is to go to your local Volvo maintenance shop or Volvo experts to find out whats the problem..usually the coomon ones I think is the programs inside its ECU unit..you try this..ask the volvo experts to reset the ECU and lets see..if problem arise then it is no doubt you might need the sensor..hope this help..

well i know on the v6 that is true you replaced all of them. Not sure of 4 cyl but seems like it should be the same. Also I know on the v6 the variable valve timing set up sometimes did some weird failures triggering a cam sensor code. It could be anything from sludgy oil hanging up in the vvt hub or clogged passages or bad solenoids. but before going into all that(well besides maybe an oil change) I would go for the crank sensor.

It is located under the water pump. Make sure when you remove the sensor that you rotate the crank shaft and look in the hole to make sure the pick up magnet is still in there. Sometimes they come loose and cause a no start or long crank. You will need to have the code cleared still.

It NEVER was the camshaft sensor! Unless, you've removed the engine lately, which I doubt.
RUN to Advance Auto Parts and buy a can of "SeaFoam" and add to your gas tank per instructions...drive at least 100 miles and the problem should go away...IF it doesn't you'll have to replace the O2 sensors in the exhaust system...Any good mechanic should be able to do this for much less $$ than the dealership DO NOT go to the dealer for repairs!
