Kept having cam shaft censor code, replaced it 5 times nothing changed, changed plugs and wires to discover #2 plug was all corroded,should we replace the power pack


I would replace all plugs first and see how it runs. If it has a miss, then I would start switching coil packs from another plug onto the #2 plug and see if the miss follows the coil pack. If so, then replace it. It the coil looks burnt at all, replace it immediately.

Misfire on 2 and 5


Hi Paula,

You didn't mention if you changed the plug wires.

You mentioned replacing the camshaft sensor. Have you checked the Crankshaft Position Sensor? Or the Mass Air Flow Sensor (may need cleaning)? Or the Throttle Position Sensor?

I am working on a 2003 mitsubishi galant and the timing belt was destroyed along with the crankshaft position sensor, balancer belt and the crankshaft sensor plate, now i have replace them and algined all...


Check to see if your getting voltage to your coil wire plug coming from vehicle, if there voltage at the plug then its most likely that when the crank shaft censor was damaged it may have shorted out your cam shaft sensor because they both run off the same system..

We have a 2000 dodge 24 valve 5.9 cummins pickup. it has a PO216 code. it has had 3 new injection pumps, new lift pump that should have taken care of that code. It has had a cam shaft censor replaced and...


The problem is the wires on the back of the lift pump. somewhere along the line there is a bad connection. typically at the back of the lift pump. if they get corroded sometimes they'll work and others it'll run poorly. Replacing the pigtail would be cheap, easy and do it yourself. Start there and you should have it solved in no time.

I have a 1996 camaro, 3.8. Have really been having alot of problems, idle seems low, i get a code P300 ( random misfire) and a Cam shaft sensor code, I replaced the cam sensor 2 times, changed the plugs...


you can disconnect the battery for about 2 min and that should clear any codes that are stored in in it or take it to autozone or someplace that will erase the codes for you i hope this helps

Idle issuse


You need to clear the codes from the ECM, and re-run diagnostic code. If you still have codes
Check your grounds. If you still have power issues, re-check your wiring or firing order. If you have spark only on 2-4-6, where is your 1 - 3 - 5. If I remember correctly those vehicles have double ignition modules. One for the right bank and one for the left bank. But not sure. When was the last time you change your spark plug wires? Your PCV? Fuel Filter? Air Filter?. As for your cam shaft sensor, run a coninuity test on the harness and ensure is working correcty. Why did you change the ECM, those things hardly go bad, unless you disconnected it while you had power going to it. Probably nothing wrong with the old one.
Ensure you don't have vacuum leaks (PCV Valve, EGR Valve) Check your fuel pressure if you can. Suggest you change fuel filter. Could be partially clogged and not allowing the proper atomization of fuel. (Also did you gap your plugs correctly or just threw them on as is?)

Cranks but wont turn over


you know. i took it to a mechanic and actually.... The timing belt cut the Crank Shaft Censor... So it was the crank shaft censor again. The wires were routed wrong from the first mechanic that "fixed" the car.
