Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi galant with the 3.0 v6 motor and I need to replace the camshaft positioning sensor. Is it all one piece with the distributor or is it separate from the distributor?

Go on line type in camshaft position sensor and open up the utube film of where it is and how to do it. Normally position sensors are not near the distributor as they have a specific setting and read the cam position to adjust the variable valve solenoid .

SOURCE: replacing bad camshaft position sensor

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Remove water pump pulley attaching bolts, then the serpentine belt and water pump pulley.
  3. Disconnect sensor wiring connector and remove sensor retaining bolt.
  4. Twist and pull sensor to remove.
Reverse procedure to install and prior to installing new sensor, lubricate sensor O-ring.

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.

On 1999 and later 2.4L SOHC engines it is located on the left end of the cylinder head (opposite end of the engine from the timing belt)

I need step by step instructions on how to replace my camshaft sensor on a 2002 chevy malibu


Go to your local auto parts store and purchase a Haynes Manual # 38026 which covers 1997 through 2003 Malibu's and it will give you step by step instructions as well as diagrams and photos of the procedure.Most Camshaft Sensors are located in the distributor cap under the rotor button. They generally have three to four wires dependent on the type of camshaft sensor is employed, but insofar as setting it or "gapping" it like you may have to do with a crankshaft sensor, this is a simple remove and replace. Depending upon your engine, look at the distributor and if you see under the distributor cap a small ribbon wire (like in computers), it will always be attached closely to a plug on the wiring harness. The Haynes Manual will even give you the wiring gauge, color and location in the back of the manual whereas Chilton never caught on to putting wiring diagrams in their books. You'll find the Camshaft Sensor in section 14, Emissions insofar as how to test and/or replace it.

Can't locate the camshaft position sensor for a v6 3.0L


well different engines have the sensor in diffreent places. 2.4l on front between timing belt and pulley,2.4l dohc i think is inside distributor.so i hope you get the idea,service manual is needed for this,purchase one at autozone or advance and life will be a lot simplier.
Actually, 2001 2.4L SOHC is on the right side of the engine. "Standard" time is 0.3 hours but I just replaced mine in about 10 minutes. Make sure you detach the intake hose in the front by the airbox and loosen the rear clamp and tilt the hose up out of the way. Requires removing the cable clamp bolt for the ??? cable on the top front right side of the valve cover. And it helps to remove the cable guild bolt holding the cable next to the wires for the CPS itself to get wiggle room to remove and reinstall it. Once you get the intake hose out of the way you should be able to see what's going on.

Trouble code is gen fr.


it's your alternator (64)
1 Engine control module malfunction
11 O2 sensor malfunction (Car usually runs weak when this code appears) (If a V6 this relates to the O2 sensor on the drivers side In a 4x4 Or the one at the back of the engine on a Galant)
12 Mass air flow sensor circuit malfinction
13 Intake air temperature sensor (Comes on if you have chucked the sensor away to fit some big fancy K&N induction kit!)
14 Throttle position sensor fault
21 Engine temp sensor malfunction (Check the spark plugs too because they carbon up if this sensor is causing the car to run rich)
22 Crankshaft position sensor (Try cleaning the dirt off the end before replacing)
23 Camshaft position/distributor hall sensor (Common on Galant 1800)
24 Vehicle speed sensor
25 Barometric pressure sensor (Another name for the MAP sensor)
31 Knock sensor circuit
36 Ignition timing adjustment connector fault
41 Injectors circuit malfunction
44 Ignition coil/ignition amplifier cylinders 1 and 4
52 As above for 2 and 5 (on a V6)
53 As above for 3 and 6 (On a V6 too)
54 Immobiliser control module to engine control module malfunction (comes on if you have changed one or the other and not had them programmed in by Mitsi)
55 Idle speed control actuator malfunction (A good injector cleaner and a thrash up the motorway usually fixes this!)
59 O2 sensor (if you have a V6 this is the sensor on the passenger side ona 4x4 and the one at the front on a Galant etc.)
61 Transmission control module/engine control malfunction
62 Intake manifold air control actuator/position sensor malfunction
64 Alternator malfunction (remember to check under load and when revved up)
71 Traction control vacuum solenoid malfunction (check the pipes for leaks)
72 Traction control vent solenoid malfunction (usually blocked with dirt)
