    Eng ck light on. Car appears too run normally. No miss, no stumble on accelleration. Mid range acceleration does appear slightly slower than normal. Used a carMD unit to get the code. Tryed computer reset by disconnecting battery. Still got code. Possible moisture problem. Have had a lot of snow. Have 97000+ miles but maint is done any time it even hic-cups. All schedule maintained. Thanks.

I agree it sounds like the magnet for the cam sensor, or a problem in the wiring harness.
I don't think the engine will run with the cam sensor disconnected since it needs that signal to set base timing. It can run without the crank sensor once the engine starts.
There is a slight chance the timing chain is getting loose and affecting cam timing too. You may be loosing plastic teeth on the cam gear.

that is a 12vdc power problem.

2005 dodge grand caravan 3.8 code po135 in stalled new botch o/2 sensor cleared codes drove van check eng light came back on same code whats is going on


Code 135 is for a faulty heater in the O2 sensor. Since you have replaced the sensor the problem is probably the circuit or the power source for the heater.
You'll need to check the heater circuit next.

CK Engine Light came on, (2006 Dodge Sprinter - 2500), mechanic found P2088 and replaced sensor. Ran check again found P 2032-02 sensor plausibility. They say oil contaminated in air charge tubes. The CK...


P2088 Dodge ,That is a cam position actuator, Not a cam sensor, Cam actuator control the cam angle, If this is ****** or advanced you'll definetly get CK ENG LT 2032, 2032 is reporting the engine condition and CK engine light is on due to a logic check, The function check has been suspended and the ECM is reporting the logic which is the condition of the vehicle, The first code was correct, P2088 that is a function failure. If there is acces to a freeze frame it will show at what MPH the vehicle was going if it is less than 40mph you can be sure the cam actuator is not advancing. Leave 2032 alone trouble shoot P2088 that is the source

When i connect my colant temp sw my car stumbles?


The coolant temp sensor is shot. Replace it. When it is connected, it gives the ignition module erroneous temp readings, and computer reacts randomly.When sensor is disconnected the car behaves as if it was cold, and it runs steadily, but probably not burning efficiently, and more important, module detects the missing sensor, and turns on the check engine light.

No ck eng. lt, but have error codes on scanner


Yes. 1 is a bad O2 sensor and the other a mis-fire.

Best thing to do is a major tune up (replace plugs/wires/fuel filter/PCV valve/etc...) and also replace the Bad O2 sensor.

Running it like this can cause long term damage. Let alone you are losing gas milage as well.

Good luck.

98Eclipse 2.0 nonTurbo 5speed 180,000 miles ,code PO301


The po301 is a misfire code. The backfire can be caused by a excessive amount of fuel, bad valve timing etc.
My guess is you have damage to an exhaust valve that may have occurred when you had the timing belt problem.A compression test will indicate if you have a leaking exhaust valve.The reason for the backfire is the exhaust valve is still partially open when the spark plug fires.
