Do we set the timing after changing the cam shaft sensor on a 2002 GMC sierra 1500?

It would probably be a good idea but if that doesnt work try plugging in an error decoded and see if it comes up with anything

How do i time the cam sencer witrh the crank sencer ?

your question is realy garbled but I think you are asking about the timing of the cam and the crank sensors usually you have to have them both replaced at same time which means you can see the NO1 position on the cam and the position of the crank and thats with the cover off but I found out from another friend that if you go onto YouTube and request How To set timing on the Cam shaft and Crank shaft sensors you will get a video. MAKE SURE YOU SPELL IT ALL RIGHT OTHERWISE YOU WILL NOT FIND IT. Sorry about the Caps but wanted your attention use my spelling. Good Luck

I have a 01 gmc jimmy that runs at idle, but stalls when i try to give it gas,and it give off fumes that burn your eyes.I already replaced the spider injectors ,cam,and crank shaft sensor

Check the rockers and if they are tight if not tighten them just enough to where you can twist the push rod with you fingers.Let me know if that works.

1998 GMC Sierra 2500 5.7L hard cold starts last month, now won't start cold w/o a little carb cleaner in intake. Codes for oxy sensors, mass air sensor and crank/cam position. Drove today, no power just...

starting definately has a lot to do with the crank/cam position sensors, but it wouldnt have nothing to do with hot or cold weather, oxygen sensor will make the vehicle run too rich if its out, you will smell fuel very strong out the exhaust, that could make it run sluggish also, and usually if the mass air flow sensor goes out the vehicle wont start at all...
