Location of camshaft position sensor on a 2002 oldsmobile bravada

4200 vortec, Its located in front of engine, its just below the engine oil fill cap, right by the coolant hose is the camshaft position sensor (CMP)
If your looking for the camshaft positioning actuator solenoid its location is on the exhaust manifold side on the top right corner of the cylinder head, if your looking at the motor from the exhaust side, its behind the power steering fill. You have to remove the belt to loosin the power steering pump through the pulley then kind of push it aside as you take out the camshaft actuator solenoid.

Remove the power steering pump. Refer to Power Steering Pump Replacement . Disconnect the camshaft position (CMP) sensor electrical connector. Remove the CMP sensor bolt. Remove the CMP sensor. Inspect the sensor O-ring for wear, cracks, or leakage if the sensor is not being replaced.
It's under the power steering pump .

Im getting codes P0011 and P0014 on my 2011 kia serento. Is mean my camshaft sensor is bad? if so where is it?

These codes have to do with the CVVT(continuously variable valve timing)solenoid. I guess it is a 2.4 liter engine, the solenoid is located right above the power steering pump at the #1 cylinder in the cylinder head. If it is the 3.5 liter it is located on top of each cylinder and is accessed after the intake plenum is removed. Either way, the solenoid controls valve timing of the exhaust cam via the solenoid which uses oil pressure to advance or retard the timing. The first step is to verify proper weight of oil and level. If the engine is over due for service, get it done. If the oil is not an issue, then the solenoid is becoming sluggish in advancing or retarding the camshaft and should be replaced.

What does P1345 mean for a 02 trailblazer

This code is related to the crankshaft to camshaft timing, and most of the time is caused by a bad Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid or oil getting into the electrical connector for that piece. This solenoid is located just behind the power steering pump.

Water pump replacement

Hope this helps you!

Removal & Installation
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
    NOTE After all components are installed on the engine, a DRB® scan tool is necessary to perform the camshaft and crankshaft timing relearn procedure.

  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Right inner splash shield
    • Accessory drive belts
    • Power steering pump and support the engine from the bottom with a jack
    • Upper and lower torque isolator struts
    • Right engine mount
    • Power steering pump bracket bolts, move the pump/bracket assembly aside
    NOTE It is not necessary to disconnect the power steering lines.

    • Right engine mount bracket
    • Timing belt and timing belt tensioner
    • Camshaft sprocket(s)
    • Inner (rear) timing belt cover
    • Water pump and discard the O-ring
  4. Clean all mating surfaces of any residual gasket material.
To install:


Water pump mounting—2002 Neon shown, other years similar

Be sure the O-ring is seated in the groove before installing the new pump

  1. Install a new O-ring in the water pump groove.
    NOTE Hold the O-ring in place with a few small dabs of silicone sealant.

    WARNING Before proceeding, be sure the O-ring gasket is properly seated in the water pump groove before tightening the screws. An improperly installed O-ring could cause a coolant leak.

  2. Install or connect the following:
    • Water pump, torque the bolt to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm). Use a pressure tester to pressurize the cooling system to 15 psi (103 kPa) and check the water pump shaft seal and O-ring for leaks.
    NOTE Rotate the pump by hand to check for freedom of movement.

    • Inner (rear) timing belt cover
    • Camshaft sprocket
    • Timing belt tensioner and timing belt
    • Right engine mount bracket and engine mount
    • Power steering pump
    • Upper and lower torque isolator struts
    • Accessory drive belts
    • Negative battery cable
  3. Refill the cooling system.
  4. Use a DRB® scan tool to perform the camshaft and crankshaft timing relearn procedure, as follows:
    • Connect the scan tool to the DLC, located under the instrument panel near the steering column.
    • Turn the ignition switch ON, and access the “miscellaneous” screen.
    • Select the “re-learn cam/crank” option, then follow the instructions on the scan tool screen.

I have a cousin with a shop in Montreal and he is having a problem with a 01 bmw 740 il,so im posting for him,the power steering shuts down when pulling into a parking spot or going slow,this vehicle has...

Power steering does not seem to have any assist when at a stop. Tests/Procedures: 1. The power steering assist is speed dependent and should be quite easy when stopped/low speeds. This is controlled by a solenoid on the side of the steering gear box.

2. Check for faults in all control modules. The general module is what controls current flow through the solenoid. Clear all faults and see if power steering operation is normal.

3. At the servo, check for power and ground from the general module. If none present, check wiring back to general module connector X254, pin 9, Black/White and pin 11, Black/Red.

4. Replace solenoid as necessary.

5. Disconnecting the solenoid will remove the variable assist function, but the steering system should still have considerable assist. If it does not with the solenoid disconnected, consider hydraulic faults as the most likely cause. A failed power steering pump is much more likely than the steering gear. Potential Causes: Defective General Module
Defective Power Steering Control Solenoid
Defective Power Steering Pump
Damaged Wiring
If your cousin has access to wiring diagrams he will be greatly advantaged in diagnosing this issue Good luck
