95 engine in 97 s10 causeing cam sensor problem

I got a 1997 chevy s10 2.2 that i just bought but the previous owner put a 1995 engine in it so there seems to be no place to install the cam sensor on the block, therefor the check engine light is on and cannot be inspected, is there a way to fix/overide this?

    Other than changing the engine or the head, I don't see a way around it. Likely, without the sensor there, the computer is missing essential information in order to manage your fuel and ignition system as well...even with the light out, you therefore may not pass the emissions portion of the inspection. In theory, there may be a way to "fool" the computer into thinking there is an operating sensor there, but the effort may not be worth the results. I hope you didn't pay a lot for the car...likely it will cost a lot to straighten this out.

SOURCE: cam shaft sensor & air conditioner

I replaced the Cam Shaft Sensor. I also cleaned the Throttle Body with carb cleaner. I had my wife hold down the accelerator, while running I sprayed down the throttle plate and the entire area around it. Now my TB finally idles smoothly, and it hasn't died yet!! Check engine light is gone and I passed the emissions test!! Yea!!!

SOURCE: Will 95 jeep gc rearend work in 97?

As long as they are the same rearend and the same gears, yes. ie a 9.25 rear with 3.92 gears will not work where a Dana 44 with 3.55 gears was.

SOURCE: Chevy S10 Pick 1995 - Sputters and almost stalls when accelerating.

You could have a dirty EGR valve, you can re move it from the manifold and clean it with Throttle body cleaner. Might as well buy two cans, since your cleaning the EGR, might as well clean out the throttle body too.
Spray the throttle body cleaner in to the throttle body with the engine running and try to keep it at 1000 rpm and then to 1500 rpm as you clean out the throttle body and let it idle down for 2 min then turn the engine off. Then turn the engine to the run position for 10 seconds and start and let idle, ro for a test drive and hope that solved the problem, if not there a few more things we can do which will consist for tune up.
Note: Clean the EGR first so you don't burn your self since the engine would still be cool before you clean the Throttle body.
Good luck and keep me posted.

My 1995 chevy s10 idols fine until engine warms up. Given gas it lugs down and dies. Changed fuel pump&filter,tps,cps,oil pressure switch,Vaccumm lines. Had it scanned. All that showed was bad relay.


You will need to have the computer scanned and monitor the data stream to see what is happening. The 02 sensor info will let you know if the engine is over/under fueled and what may be causing it. Throwing parts at it by just guessing gets expensive. The data stream, if viewed by a trained technician, will reveal any problems that may be causing your problem

1995 GEO TRACKER ENGINE WITH CRANK SHAFT SENSOR HAS NO HOOK UP WITH MY OLD WIREING HARNESS


double posted. see other post.
you need to post what you had and and what you put in.
the 1995 has no crank sensor. sorry.
back one post and tell car getting fixed,
year and engine, and donor year and engines.

my wild guess, is new engine is 1995 but is it 8v or 16valves.
you must match the valves.!!~
the 8v is a one injector engine
the 16valve is 4 injectors ,and totally different ECU and wiring.

please id both engines.
is your car newer than the engine?
weve done this many times.

here is G16b for G16b drop. 1997. same for same
if had 95 G16b going to 97
id have swapped pans, oil pump and crank sensor.
onto new engine.

Swapped a 1999 420A engine into a 1995 eclipse (also a 420A) and we have no spark. We started by checking the cam sensor and it is working properly it is upside down from the 95 but the ASD relay is...


first the cam sensor shouldn't be upside down from the 95. they both should be with the plug facing down. they 95 CAS has a different plug than the 99 CAS.
the 95 has round pins and the 99 has flat pins.

also the 95-96 relays are opposite the 97-99

besides that it could be the ecu. i also have heard of the locating pin on the intake cam shearing off, allowing the gear to turn with the timing belt without the actual camshaft spinning.

Will a 1995 buick leSabra engine work in a 1997 buick leSabre


Yes, as long as the engine mounts line up, a 95 engine will work in a 97. Be certain that the transmission in 97 will mount to the 95.

Replacing the o rings on a 95 chevy s10 2.2


The Injectors are right there in opening of the throttle body. There are not individual injectors for each cylinder.
There 2 or 4 injectors that spray the gas right on top the throttle plate. The entire manifold is filled with the gas/air mixture.
