The replacement camshaft position sensor could be defective, but also the probable causes of the wiring or a defective pcm have to be checked.

SOURCE: I replaced the spark plugs, O2 sensor, temp.

This usually indicates either a broken timing reference pin on the flywheel, or a broken timing belt..
To check the belt, simply loosen the upper cover and pull it back, have an assistant crank over the car, and watch to see if the belt is turning with the camshaft sprocket..
To check the timing pin, remove the two sensors on the left side of the bellhousing, there are two 5mm Allen or hex style bolts holding the bracket on that houses the sensors. have someone turn the crank by hand slowly and watch for the pin to come within view as the engine nears TDC...No pin, no spark...
You can also access the pin by pulling out the starter and turning the engine over slowly.

SOURCE: when gas pedal is pressed car dies

Fuel pump relay is just above the brake booster, change your spark plugs and wires. Check crank sensor. And reset and re scan your car. Code 12. Means ur computer is scanning well. You have to wait . Each code flashes three times. 12 x 3 then all trouble codes x 3 each. Then 12 x 3 again. To conclude scan

Starts dies


an alternator won't stall your car, the battery provides power to keep the spark going. It sounds like you could have some bad fuel, if you're able to run the throttle manually with your foot and keep it going that would indicate idle control. but if it stalls still when you are giving it gas. I would guess a fuel supply issue, either water in your gas, or fuel pump. Good Luck.

Our 2001 Nissan Xterra engine died at traffic light. Power seemed normal but engine will not run. 5 weeks ago we had it in for a tune up and oil change. Any thoughts on why it died and will not run when...


i assume that "power seemed normal" means that you can get engine to turn over, but not start.

possible problems: clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump, water or other impurities in gasoline, foreign matter in gas tank, faulty "electronic distributor", possible blockage of adequate air supply, broken timing chain.

if i were to have to guess, it would be the timing chain, especially if car was running well prior to this problem.

The engine turns over but the motor will not start. The van was running fine when it was cut off. It doesn't seem to be getting gas.


It's very likely your fuel pump has failed. Have somebody thump on the fuel tank while you're cranking the engine and see if it starts. If it does, replace the fuel pump. Otherwise get your fuel pressure checked, and check for spark. If no spark, check to make sure the distributor is turning(if applicable) If a 3.3 motor with no spark, suspect the crank sensor or cam sensor. Crank sensor is much easier to replace if experimenting.

It won't die when pulling the relay because it has another power path to the fuel pump through the oil pressure switch . Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation watch this video on fuel pump control , shows chrysler first , ford ,then gm . wait for gm an he explains the oil pressure switch . Plus when it won't start ,don't guess or theorize ! Test what's missing ? check for spark , no spark check ignition system , coil's , ignition module , crank sensor etc... has spark ,do a fuel pressure test etc... don't think computer , when it won't start does the check engine light come on with the key on run not start .

1989 dodge d150. truck will run fine for about 15 minutes then dies. I changed the fuel filter and it still dies. both injectors seem to be pumping fuel. so any ideas.


If you are sure right after the engine dies you have fuel I would think it was the coil going bad see if yiou have spark right after it dies. If you have spark squirt gas into the throuttle body and see if it starts

1991 Honda Civic Problems car started ok. at stop sign died will not start getting gas turns over fine.seems like no spark


whaddya mean seems like no spark. There's no such thing as "seems like no spark. There either is or isn't and it's easy to tell. remove spark plug lay against good ground and crank. you'll see it for crissse sake.

Not getting gas is a fuel delivery problem, fuse, pump, or relay.

On sunday pray for it. all the other days cuss it out.

I had a similar problem. I gradually lost power (over a week) and then it finally died and wouldn't restart but for a minute and then die again. The solution was replacing the catalytic converter which had been ruined by a bad spark plug. It was a 2001 L200.
