If the cam shaft sender goes out will it shut the car down even if no sputtering or no warning and it's running,just cut off like you turned the key off


it will just shut off the engine because the ECM will have no idea of the position of the cam in relation to the piston
The ECM needs to know the exact position of the crank and cam shafts to determine the ignition timing so if one or both go out then the engine stops
If course if the timing belt breaks the same result happens as the cam shaft sensor stops sending a signal to the ECM so the ECM shuts the engine down

What is the function of the cam sensor on the 325 E36 bmw. can the car start with a faulty camshaft sensor. If so what will the car do


as the cam shaft position sensor works in combination with the crank shaft position sensor to tell the ECM where the piston is for the correct firing and timing
it would be unreasonable to consider that the engine would function with a faulty unit
basically if the cam shaft sensor is not operational then the engine will not start

What does this code mean


Does the truck run ok? If so may just be bad sensor .it reads the correlation between cam and crank shafts so timing is correct so the camshaft control the valves and crankshaft controlling the pistons don't hit each other

Timming chain broke


place no 1 piston at TDC compression stroke. There are procedures for the timing of the balance shafts but if it is only the timing chain I will go to that
Align uniquely coloured chain link with intake camshaft sprocket timing mark-- INT--. ( this will be pointing at the 2 o'clock position)
install timing chain and sprocket as an assembly
align first matching coloured chain link crankshaft timing mark (5 o'clock position)
align the second matching coloured chain link with exhaust cam shaft timing mark--EXH ( at the 11 o'clock position
There is a special procedure to reset the balance tensioner and it is different to the timing chain procedure.

To reset cam shaft timing chain tensioner push piston fully and turn clockwise until locked
Once the tensioner has been compressed ensure the distance from end to end is 2.83 inches . If not repeat the resetting process
vehicles 30.000 miles the tensioner is released when the engine is first started . In vehicles over 30.000 miles manually release tensioner by tapping the plunger
Note cam shaft and crank shaft sprockets bolts MUST only be used once. If you want details on the balancer chain procedure then make a comment in the box
use tension wrench and a degree gauge
cam bolts are tensioned to 63 ft lbs + 30 degrees
crank shaft pulley is tensioned to 74 ft lbs + 75 degrees

Timing chain marks needed for Audi A4 B9 1.8tfsi 2009 model. Engine was taken out and settings not marked. This is extremelyurgent. Please help


diagrams I have show a twin cam set up with 2 balancing shafts. The marks on the cam shaft point to (left cam shaft 11 oclock the mark on the right point to the 1 oclock position. The chain will have 3 black links-- the top black links will be at the timing marks on the shafts with the 3rd black link directly at 6 oclock facing a mark on the gear. The balancer marks both point to the 1 oclock position with black links on each and the 3rd black link will be facing a mark to the 7 oclock position on the crankahaft gear. Everything is done with the piston at TDC no 1 cylinder so get it there before you put the cam shafts in position or you will bend valves. Crank shaft gear is not keyed to the crank shaft. there are dots on the right hand balancer shaft gears and these dots will be as the 2 dots on adjacent teeth either side of a dot on the meshing gear. I suppose that is all as clear as mud but if you got this far then you will see the marks and marked links on the chains

When trying to set timing to replace belt the crank locks what would be problem


you are allowing the pistons to lock up on the valves that are open. Remove the cam shaft/s and then set the crank position . Find the timing marks and then set the cam shaft/s back in position with out turning any thing

Finding out how to find lost cam timing mark on a 1997 volvo 960


you are in a bit of a bind. Turning the engine over will result in bent valves so do not touch the crank shaft. you have to loose off all the rockers/ cam followers even to the point of removing the cam shaft. having done that remove no1 cylinder spark plug and by the use of a thin piece of wire turn the crank until the piston reaches top dead center. find this by rocking the crank back and forward until the piston dose'n move up or down check for the crank timing mark next replace the cam shaft and position the cam lobes for no1 piston in such a position that the inlet and exhaust valves move slightly up or down when the cam is moved slightly left or right. this is called valve over lap and with the piston on top dead center means that you now have valve timing for the engine. Cam timing marks can be dot on gear to shiny link on chain or if using a belt a dot on tooth lineing up with mould mark or join on head before starting up do a compression check to prove that there are no bent valves. if you are not mechanically minded enough to attempt the valve timing method it may be cheaper in the long term to let a qualified person do the job

I replaced the distributor, coil ignition module cam position sensor and still no spark in a 99 dodge avenger what could be the problem


Often, modules and sensors are not the problem, rather the wiring that connects them. Check wiring attached to each of the items mentioned to see if signals are being transmitted to and from them according to factory specs. (specs are often difficult to acquire) Also check fuses. Not so sure about the 99 Avenger but most vehicles to not determine spark timing soley from the cam shaft positioning sensor, rather the crank shaft positioning sensor. Also, the ignition coil on late model vehicles are nortorious for failing because of heat cracking the plastic housing.

I would like to know if the cam sensor and the crank shaft sensor are one of the same or two different items


They are two different items. The cam sensor reports the position of the cam shaft(s) which operate the valves. The crank shaft sensor reports the position of the crank shaft, ie the position of the pistons.

Had a cambelt break on a 2003 renault scenic 1.6 16v, replaced valves and head gasket, just need to fit timing belt but having trouble with the cam timing, crank shaft locking tool is fitted...


Its because your pistons on 1&4 are up top that is why your bent valves got bent you are doing exactly the same thing so turn the crank back 15degrees position your cam and reset your crank,it seems to me you may be out of your depth lets hope not or it may be expensive
