What does the camshaft sensor look like show picture


They are typically on the top side of the engine and usually on the belt side (front if it is old school rear wheel drive) but sometimes on the transmission side. Folow the wires to see if any lead to this area. Rule out wired devices that go to the air intake systems and sensors that dont go to the top of the engine (belt/transmission side) and it will likely narrow it down for you.

I have a 2004 Cherokee and there is coolant in the transmission. Any idea how it got there?


No coolant is suppose to be in transmission. How it got there is easy, you radiator has transmission lines running through the bottom of it. Your radiator has an internal leak into those trans lines. You'll probably find oily substance in coolant also.

    I have a 2004 chevy suburban 4 wheel drive in need of changing the antifreeze and not sure where to drain old coolant and to add new coolant.


    Not all cars have a drain port. if there isn't a petcock or plastic plug at the bottom right or left side of the radiator, just take the lower radiator hose loose to drain. OK?

    Brownish fluid leaking from the small mannifold on the passenger side of the car in front of the radiator...is this transmission fluid?


    Good chance it's the transmission fluid. The passenger side of the radiator is the transmission cooler side and the coolant is leaking from the transmission lines. There should be two lines, one on top which is the inlet and the bottom one which is the return line. Check to make sure there is no corrosion along the lines or that the line has not come loose at the radiator. Locate the leak and repair or replace the lines. Good luck and take care not to run low on transmission fluid, low fluid in the system will cause the transmission to burn out.
