Not a bad job to replace the cam position sensor, it took about two hours cost about $150.00 with oem parts. First remove air filter box,remove plastic spark plug cover. Jack up engine about an inch remove engine mount. Now you can access sensor through a convenient cover that mounts around engine mount bracket extending from engine block.( one ten millimeter bolt) Remove accessory drive belt for a little extra room and replace with new one while you are in there. Just between the two cam gears you will see a torx screw that aligns the switch when in installed. DO NOT REMOVE THIS Just above the torx screw is a reverse torx screw (6 millimeter) Put a shop rag in the access hole to catch the screw just in case you drop it ,( so it does not fall into timing belt cover) Put something "sticky" in the 6 millimeter socket such as gasket sealer to keep from losing screw. remove. Pull switch up from inside spark plug cover and install new one through the same. reinstall 6 millimeter bolt. Switch is self aligning. Reinstall belt, engine mount, air box. Doing this myself probably saved me about $150.00 to $200.00 dollars

    i always keep a rare earth magnet in my pocket. Attach one to a screwdriver or pliers and hopefully you don't lose the magnet too

    I will give it a shot! Most posts say its in the timing belt area, I don't think that is where this screw went!

Suzuki Forenza error code P0782


Well code 782 is for a problem with the 2-3 shift solenoid or the circuit back to the engine computer. The solenoid is inside the transmission.
Code 722 was for a problem with the speed sensor. You could have a wiring harness problem.

It might,either the camshaft position sensor is at fault or is detecting out of range this can be due to the camshaft actuator being plug, When you fail to change oil,and fail to use the proper weight and type the cam position actuator gets plugged,and the cam postion sensor go out of range. setting the code, If the diagnosis is certain go ahead and replace it when this code appears, the ECM defaults to a set setting

HELLO, I HAVE TROUBLE CODES PO330,PO340, ON MY OBD2 READER WITH THE MAINT LIGHT ON IN 96 BMW Z3 ROADSTER 4CYL., PO330 IS KNOCK SENOR, PO340 IS CAMSHAFT POSITION SENOR, I WANT TO KNOW HOW TO FIX THEM BOTH....


The Cam Position Sensor is a common item to fail. However, the cam positioning mechanism can fail too giving that code.

There are two sensors and the Exhaust Cam Sensor is most common to fail. I always replace both.
Te CKP's are on the top front of the engine next to the cylindrical operation solenoids.

Knock sensors fail too and need checked or correct feedback to ECU with a scanner.
Find a shop near you at http://www.iatn.net/shopfinder/

These engines require regular oil changes with quality synthetic oils and OE filter....not a FRAM or WIX !

Buy only BMW sensors ...aftermarket have high failure rate.

Cam shaft sensor location


Hi, if you were looking down at your motor from above , and you pictured the engine as a clock with 6:00 pointing to the radiator, the camshaft position sensor would be under the plenum at 8:00. hope this helps.

04 SUZUKI FORENZA DIES WHILE DRIVING


Several things can cause a car to die. The fact that you don't have any engine codes eliminates some of them. First thing you should try if you haven't is change the fuel filter. Make sure there are no damp, or damaged electrical components. It could be faulty spark plugs, or wires, or a vacuum leak. Check carefully under the hood for vacuum leaks. With the engine running, wiggle all the vacuum hoses around and check for cracked loose or broken hoses. They will make a hissing sound when you find it. A stethoscope, or a length of fuel line held to your ear can help a lot. Check all intake bolts for tightness too. Good luck.
