I f your unsure bring the VIN # off the dash board .Look through the windsheild from the out side drivers side you will see a long code #s and letters this is the VIN everything about the vehicle is encoded into this #

SOURCE: camshaft position sensor

The camshaft position sensor is on the rear cylinder head on the left end (the serpentine belt end of the engine - passenger side). It is a son-of-a gun to get at. When it is bad or the connector is intermittant or bad, the symptom will be irregular idle from 500 to 750 RPM or so.

PO102 and PO340 on 1997 GMC Jimmy


PO102 = mass airflow circuit low. Means there's a problem with the mass airflow sensor or circuit. Could be the sensor is disconnected, dirty, or faulty. PO340 = camshaft position sensor circuit. Could be ground wire disconnection, camshaft position sensor failed, PCM is failing, or even the crankshaft position sensor has failed. Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

NEED HAVE VECHICLE CODE SCANNED FIRST LOOK FOR FAULT CODES MANY THINGS WILL CAUSE NO STARTING,LIKE BAD CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR.FAULTY CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR,BAD SPARK PLUGS FOULED OUT BY FLOODING ENGINE DUE TO LEAKING FUEL INJECTORS,BAD ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR,BAD MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR.FAULTY ECM. CODE SCAN VECHICLE FIRST.IF NO FAULT CODES CAME UP YOU COULD HAVE FAULT IN FUEL SYSTEM, COULD HAVE STOPPED UP FUEL FILTER,BAD FUEL PUMP RELAY OR FUSE THE FUEL PUMP COULD BE FAULTY. TURN IGNITION SWITCH TO ON POSITION LISTEN FOR FUEL PUMP OPERATION IN FUEL TANK, YOU SHOULD HEAR FUEL PUMP RUN FOR FEW SECONDS THEN TURN OFF.IF NO FUEL PUMP BAD MORE LIKELY BUT CHECK FUSE AND RELAY FIRST BEFORE BUYING NEW FUEL PUMP.DONT BUY NEW PARTS HAVE VECHICLE CODE SCANNED FIRST USING DIAGNOSTIC SCANNER YOU COULD HAVE BAD CONTAMINATED FUEL.

Squealing from the top of engine what is it coming from?


See if noise is in what used to be your distributor location. It is called a camshaft synchronizer. The camshaft sensor spins around in this assembly. If it has play in it the sensor will rub on the assembly & cause a squealing noise. It will generaly set check engine light for bad camshaft position sensor. If you buy the synchronizer new it will come with the tool needed to properly install the sensor at its correct position.

1993 ford taurus, replaced all starting and charging componets still no spark to plugs. Checked all fuses and all fusible links. Replaced key switch, ignition switch,neutral safty...


The camshaft position sensor sends a signal to the PCM, powertrain control module. The PCM then determines spark plug firing. Could be the camshaft position sensor.

1996 is all I have
Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor 3.0L (2V) Engine
The camshaft position sensor (CMP sensor) (12126):
  • is a single Hall-effect magnetic switch activated by a single vane which is driven by the camshaft (6250).
  • provides camshaft position information which is used by the ignition coil (12029) and the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) for fuel synchronization.
3.0L (4V) Engine
The camshaft position sensor (CMP sensor) (6B288) is:
  • a variable reluctance sensor.
  • triggered by the high-point mark on the LH exhaust camshaft sprocket (6256).

SPECIAL SERVICE TOOL(S) REQUIRED Description Tool Number Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A
sth~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Prior to removal of the camshaft position sensor (CMP sensor) (12126), set cylinder No.1 to zero degrees top dead center (TDC) of compression stroke. Then note the position of the camshaft position sensor electrical connector. The installation procedure requires that the connector be located in the same position.
Removal
  1. Disconnect battery ground cable. Refer to Section 14-01 .
  1. Disconnect engine control sensor wiring connector from camshaft position sensor.
  1. Remove camshaft position sensor retaining screws and camshaft position sensor from camshaft position sensor housing.
  1. If removing camshaft position sensor housing from the cylinder block (6010), proceed with Removal Step 5. If not removing camshaft position sensor housing, proceed to installation Step 6.
  1. Remove hold-down clamp (bolt and washer assembly).
  1. Remove camshaft position sensor housing from cylinder block.
Installation
  1. sth~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: A special service tool such as Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A must be obtained prior to installation of the replacement camshaft position sensor. Failure to follow this procedure will result in improper camshaft position sensor alignment. This will result in the fuel system being out of time with the engine, possibly causing engine damage.
    Attach Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A as follows:
    1. Engage camshaft position sensor housing vane into the radial slot of the tool.
    1. Rotate tool on camshaft position sensor housing until tool boss engages notch in camshaft position sensor housing.
  1. Pre-lubricate synchronizer gear with engine oil meeting Ford specification ESE-M2C123-A prior to assembly.
  1. Install camshaft position sensor housing so that drive gear engagement occurs when arrow on locator tool is pointed approximately 75 degrees counterclockwise from the rear face of the cylinder block. This step will locate camshaft position sensor electrical connector in the pre-removal position.
  1. Roatate Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A clockwise slightly. This will engage oil pump intermediate shaft. Push downward while adjusting Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A until the Syncro Gear engages the camshaft gear.
  1. When synchronizer flange is fully seated against block, the installation tool should be facing counterclockwise of engine centerline approximately 33 to 45 degrees.
  1. Install hold-down clamp (washer and bolt) and tighten bolt to 19-30 Nm (14-22 lb-ft).
  1. Remove Syncro Positioning Tool T95T-12200-A.
  1. sth~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: If camshaft position sensor electrical connector is not positioned properly, DO NOT reposition the connector by rotating the camshaft position sensor housing. This will result in the fuel system being out of time with the engine, possibly causing engine damage. Remove the camshaft position sensor housing and repeat installation procedure, beginning with Step 1.
    Install camshaft position sensor and retaining screws. Tighten screws to 1.5-4.0 Nm (13-35 lb-in).
  1. Connect engine control sensor wiring connector to camshaft position sensor.
  1. Connect battery ground cable.
