Any time you replace a sensor you have to clear the codes or they will stay there for awhile is the check engine light on ? is the engine reving high at idle ? you need to give all info when asking questions

I just replaced timing chains on my 5.4 24v engine now after about 30 mins of driving the engine struggles to run as if not running on all cyl at hwy speed ok but in stop start traffic not good

check the valve timing as it indicates a timing problem.
the higher rpm at highway speed indicates that the valve timing is coming correct as the rpm advances the timing in the solenoid actuation but at idle it is out a bit
could be one cam off a tooth
run the fault codes to see if the cam shaft advance operation is working ( wiring , cam shaft position sensor , actuator etc )
check the fuel pressure and injector operations as they may be failing at the lower pulse action

PLEASE HELP! My l200 knocks when reving what causes this? is it the balance shaft bearings

balance shafts are in the block ,not the top end
could be cam shaft bearings or a failing cam lobe
could be a cam advance servo unit that is faulty at rpm and knocking from low oil pressure supply

Car blows white smoke at high rpm runs bad

hmmm...This kind of problem usually is due to cam shaft/valve timing issues. Sometimes, the cam shaft is not properly positioned and is not in sync with the distributor thus the exhaust valves open early releasing unburnt fuel. This will cause the engine to definitely run bad.
I suggest that you try to adjust your engine's timing first (cam and distributor) and then see the results. Also, remember that there is a limit to the rpm that an engine must do- about 6,000rpm is enough for high or max hp. Another information, a camshaft will only work best at a given rpm range so if you run your engine too low or too high, the engine will not work properly. In fact, there are special cam shafts for engines intended to run at high rpm while sacrificing lower rpm levels (the engine runs grumpy at low rpm levels).
Worst case, however, is that white smoke sometimes indicates that oil enters your combustion chamber, this will cost an expensive rebuild if such is the fact.

It starts flashing when ive been driving for a bit. my truck also idles high and the rpm needle goes up and down while im driving and causes the truck to **** back and forth as if i was reving the engine....

Take your vehicle to nearest autozone have them test .tell them your check engine lihht comes on and tell them your symptoms .the test is free and they may get a computer code telling if a sensor (which I suspect) is bad.please leve good feedback if you are satified with this solution.

I have a 2004 Neon that begins to buck and hesitate at high rpm's

try pushing in on plugs on PCM, below and inboard from the driver's side headlight. The cam sensor goes to the bottom plug.

Replaced crank shaft position sensor from autozone. erased all codes. still showing code p1345. ive been told to use acdelco. am i doing something wrong?

Code p1345 is the crankshaft variation learn.You need to get the crankshaft variation learn done for the code to clear.You will need a scan tool.This should take care of the check engine light.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Crank shaft sesor/cam sensor problem?

If you had a fault with the crank sencer your car would not start.Sounds like the air flow meter is giving you the problems.

2002 Audi A4 Esp Light comes on, car turns off when I have to sto

I had the same issue with my '05 A4 1.8T.  Turns out it was the RPM sensor.  Audi tried to tell me it was teh fuel pump and the cam-shaft positioning sensor.  Paid for teh fuel pump replacement and it died 6 blocks from the dealership.  Then they replaced the RPM snesor, works great now... Except it's still an Audi.
