My 2007 Mazda cx-7 completely dead for no reason on and off

cam shaft sensor got nothing to do with your oil change.
Cam runs on your timing belt. it's a possibility that it may be faulty as its only a sensor.
change the sensor

Camshaft position sensor correlation bank 1 code

timing belt is off by a tooth or two. you probably didn\'t have to replace the coolant sensor; that code sets whenever the sensor is disconnected and the ignition is turned on; and it needs to be reset by disconnecting the battery or with a code reader. anyway, the crank/ cam sensors are out of sync. if you\'ve got the twin cam engine, they are a royal pain to get the belt to lay properly on the two cams.

Have you ever replaced the timing belt?? If not the problem is likely to be a loose worn out timing belt. A floppy belt will play havoc with the sensor signals and trigger a check engine light and a camshaft sensor code.

Hey there Floyd. Did you ever do a OBDII scan on it? If so, I still need the codes. Are you getting fuel and an injector pulse? Have you experienced any backfires since you changed the timing belt? I know the cam sensor can cause this issue, but it wouldn't explain the traction light coming on. It could also be seperate issues. Them lights flashing usually means major engine failure as well. But the computer can cause all this if it is bad. We will get to the bottom of this and for the time being, send me back some answers. Anything else you know going on, send it as well.

2007 Tahoe has check engine light on and can not used the remote starer either. reset codes the remote starter work until check light came back on code said cam sesenr fault car run fine

there are several reasons why the remote start won't work, and one of them is the presence of a check engine light. Normally a check engine light comes on when a trouble code is present and recorded by the engine control module. Resetting or erasing the codes can only bring temporary relief, like what u said the remote start worked again. But the trouble will still come back until the real cause is being addressed. You got code on the cam sensor, but car runs fine. Its because the engine computer senses inconsistencies while trying to improve the Emissions system of your vehicle. That we cannot see or hear. Most probably your cam sensor or the wirings are getting intermittent. Better have it visually inspected and replaced if necessary.

I have a honda civic type r (2002) the engine management light came on so I took it to the garage. The diagnostic test showed cam sensors fault. I had these changed which cost me £300 and the engine...

its best to change cam and crack sensors at the same time, but as for removing engine to change belts thats a no there is a plate in the wheel arch that needs removing to gain access. removing the wheel and you will see the plate that needs removing. belt change is not hard to do. if the cam sensor has failed and replaced and still a fault then its not this at all that is the problem. you can get a false code, and resetting it and running engine to see if it comes up again. also if the garage is using the right equipment it will be able to diagnose a run test this will tell you the full state of the problem so you don't waste money replacing every single part. a failed Maf sensor on some models can make a cam sensor fail as its linked, and that usually just needs a clean with MAF cleaner, this people change the air filter and forget about the sensor. the muck ats on the air filter can get thought to the sensor and give a false reading. also when a part is replaced the ecu needs to be reset or it will say engine faults any were up 60 starts of the engine. so i would have this done. hope this helps. plus if belts lose you would know while running the engine it will squil or make strange sounds. i would recommend another garage if you are going to this one. use a recommended garage, or a garage specialised to you vehicle. changing parts as they think will cost you more money in the long run. good luck with your repair.

Service engine soon light on. failed aircare.showing code po341 .

The service engine light DOES NOT mean change your oil. The change oil or maintence required light means change oil. The service engine light is the same as a check engine light and means that there is something (not always really bad) is going on with your motor and need someone that has a code reader to let you know what the code is. Yes that code is a camshaft position sensor code. It is located on the passenger side of the engine in the "valley" between the two cyclinder heads. Its not too hard as long as you have some tools and some skills. Its easiest to remove the serpentine belt and remove the bolts for the power steering pump. That way you can move the pump a little to gain better access to remove the cam sensor. Just replaced one yesterday on a 99 century. Hope that helps!
