How do I fit a camshaft positioner to my Peugeot 406 gtx 136 2001 year


Some camshaft sensors must be installed AND adjusted. More likely there is also a crankshaft position sensor which is more likely to have caused your problem. You need to but an inexpensive shop manual for your car from any parts store. Also double check the error code. I believe your car has variable cam timing such that a failure in that system can set the code even if the sensor is good. Is it possible your timing belt (or chain) may have failed?

It's located on top of the driverside valve cover next to the oil fill cap, theres a metal clip holding the connector,push it down and it will pull off,then remove the 8mm bolt and twist it back and forth while pulling at the time.

Where does the cam position sencer located at


It's officially called a CMP Syncronizer.
There are stern warnings on the page associated with this.
CAMSHAFT POSITION (CMP) SENSOR Removal & Installation
CMP sensor is located on rear of engine, behind intake manifold. Before removing, note position of electrical connector on CMP sensor. Remove upper intake manifold. See UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLD . Disconnect CMP sensor. Remove CMP sensor screws and CMP sensor. To install, reverse removal procedure. Ensure CMP sensor electrical connector is pointing in original direction. Tighten CMP sensor to specification.
2 . Failure to use synchro positioner during installation will cause fuel injection to be out of time and may cause engine damage.
CAUTION: DO NOT rotate crankshaft when Synchro Positioner (T95T-12200-A) is positioned on CMP synchronizer. Armature tab will be damaged and synchronizer timing may be shifted. Removal
1. Position crankshaft to TDC of cylinder No. 1, on compression stroke. Note position of electrical connector on CMP sensor. 2. Disconnect negative battery cable. Unplug harness connector from CMP sensor. Remove CMP sensor screws and CMP sensor from positioner. Remove synchronizer hold-down bolt and CMP synchronizer.
Fig. 2: Exploded View Of CMP Synchronizer Assembly (Typical) Courtesy of FORD MOTOR CO.
CAUTION: DO NOT rotate crankshaft while synchronizer is removed from engine. Installation
1. Install Synchro Positioner (T95T-12200-A) on synchronizer housing. See Fig. 3 . Rotate synchronizer shaft until vane on shaft aligns with slot on synchro positioner. Rotate synchro positioner until engaged into notch in housing. Dip drive gear in engine oil.
Fig. 3: Installing Synchro Positioner On Synchronizer Assembly (Typical) Courtesy of FORD MOTOR CO.
Fig. 4: Positioning Synchronizer For Installation Courtesy of FORD MOTOR CO. 2. Rotate sychronizer assembly so that synchro positioner is 60 degrees counterclockwise of crankshaft centerline before inserting synchronizer assembly into engine. See Fig. 4 . 3. As synchronizer is inserted into engine, synchronizer will rotate. When seated, synchronizer electrical connector should be located in original position.
CAUTION: If CMP sensor electrical connector is not positioned correctly, DO NOT reposition connector by rotating synchronizer. This may cause fuel system to be out of time with the engine, causing possible engine damage or an engine misfire. Remove synchronizer and reinstall. See step 3 . 4. Install hold-down clamp and tighten bolt to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . Install CMP sensor to synchronizer and tighten to specification. Ensure CMP sensor electrical connector is in original position. Reconnect wiring to CMP sensor. Connect negative battery cable.

1998 Jeep Cherokee -- car won't start. Turns over


have scanned to find problem code to get an idea of what it is. .it may either be the crank or cam sensor, check the crank sensor first. if it is bad it sends wrong timing info to pcm. therefore jeep will not start!! It is either the camshaft or crankshaft positioner. I would check the crank pos. first. Zach Cabot, AR

1999 ford explorer cam sensor needs replaced how hard is it to replace


the CMP (camshaft positioning sensor) is located underneath (or technically inside) the distributor. The manual states the distributor is sealed and the cmp is inside, but is also replaceable. therefore, I am guessing the cmp is bolted underneath the distributor. If you remove the distributor, the end of the shaft should be a slot and not splines and the timing is not adjustable, so when you put it back together if the timing is wrong, the distributor can only be 180 degrees off, so you don't have to be too picky about perfect placement. Make sure to marke it anyway though, to avoid being 180 off.
