My 2008 Chevy uplander engine light on and the code shows for cam shaft sensor and intake manifold what I do


The intake code means its leaking from the intake,bad gaskets, or a vacuum leak. check for bad gaskets on intake manifold. You can tell by putting a bit of oil around the maifold. if it is leaking the engine will flair up. To check this, External leak-- Coolant seeps through the broken intake manifold gasket to the outside of the engine. If its bad enough you will see coolant dripping from gasket. Coolant seeps through the damaged gasket to the inside of the engine, mixing with motor oil. If you suspect an internal leak, check your oil dipstick. Or if you have a substance under oil filler cap that looks like a milkshake, Oil is mixing with coolant. this means intake gaskets are bad, Now for the camshaft sensor, If you have a manifold leak. this could be giving you a false camshaft reading! Because, If sensor is bad vehicle will not start unless theres a wire problem. Symtoms of a bad sensor are--- engine sputtering, poor acceleration, stalling/inability to start. HopeI helped you out! Good-Day!

Oil leaking from toyota camry 1992, 1994 model


You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

The V6 had oil leaks from

-rear bank cam cover gasket

-distributor o-ring seal

-oil filter bracket o-ring seal

-crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

-rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

The 4 cyl leaked oil from

-distributor o-ring seal

-camshaft cover gasket

-rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

Car with blown head gasket more that 120,000 miles


Quite possibly the motor will be OK after replacement of one or both head gaskets. This can be done with the engine still in the car. The definitive tests for whether this is needed are a compression test (shows head gasket leaks) and a radiator leak-down test (shows water jacket coolant leaks).
If it turns out the job is required it is a good idea to have the timing belt and water pump replaced also, and the crankshaft nose and camshaft oil seals. The cylinder head faces and mating block faces must be carefully checked for flatness.
Although more expensive it is advisable to specify genuine Toyota seals and gaskets as the cheaper non-genuine ones do not last on this engine.
The V6 has several characteristic oil leaks which develop, and that may not be related to the head gasket problem. It will leak from
- rear bank cam cover gasket, onto the exhaust- distributor shaft o-ring seal- oil filter bracket o-ring seal (if present)
These can be replaced at the same time.
The alternative is to have a 2nd hand motor fitted, which is always an unknown, but if you can get a warranty that will be better.
Get several quotes for each alternative, and try to gauge the reputation of the mechanics

Does the cam shaft on a 1987 sentra 1.3 E13S engine take a spacer or washer between the oil seal housing and cyclinder head


Here's what the tech data says for installation:


To install:
  1. Slide the camshaft into the cylinder head carefully and then install a NEW oil seal.
  2. Install the cylinder head and rear timing belt cover.
  3. Set the camshaft so that the knockpin faces upward and then install the camshaft sprocket so its timing mark aligns with the one on the rear timing cover.
  4. Install the timing belt.
  5. Coat the rocker shaft and the interior of the rocker arm with engine oil. Install them so the punchmark on the shaft faces forward and the oil holes in the shaft face down. The cut-out in the center retainer on the shaft should face the exhaust manifold side of the engine.
  6. Make sure the valve adjusting screws are loosened and then tighten the shaft bolts to 13-15 ft. lbs. (18-20 Nm) in several stages, from the center out. The first and last mounting bolts should have a new bolt stopper installed.
  7. Adjust the valves and refill all fluid levels.
  8. Start engine, check timing and road test.

1995 toyota camry leaking oil from behind the timing belt cover. Isn't this a major repair? Is the leak more than likely a camshaft seal?


If you haven't had the timing belt replace (60,000 miles is the suggested service intervale) this is an overlap of having the timing belt replaced.
If the timing belt is not due for replacement and its the cam shaft seal that is leaking. Its a pretty easy fix. Remove the top timing belt cover , and the crankshaft sensor wiring you may have to remove the front engine mount . Set #1 piston at TDC, Loosen tensioner w/ spring slip off belt. **Remove sprocket pull out old seal with a sharp pick. Greese and install new seal make sure its flush with its bore . Reistall sprocket. Slide belt over Cam sprocket tighten tensioner. Install cover and mount (if applicable) Check timing marks by turning crank two revolutions.
** If CamSprocket Bolt is difficult to remove then remove valve cover and use a 21mm wrench to hold the Camshaft while you crack off Cam Sprocket Bolt.
You will see the groves on the Camshaft where you can place a wrench to hold the shaft.
After you replaced the seal replace the valve cover gasket ONLY IF YOU HAD TO REMOVE THE COVER TO HOLD THE CAM WHILE REMOVING ITS BOLT.

This is about as major as it gets.

I have a 1988 Toyota 4x4, all stock. V-6, 5 speed. I just replaced the valve cover gaskets, clutch w/rear main seal as both were leaking oil. Now, I am still leaking oil but cannot find the leak. I was...


Yes rear cam plug leaks are common. no need to replace, just remove & apply rtv to sealing surface. Also check cam housing on right bank rear. This can be removed & resealed with rtv silicone.

Have a serious oil leak.


the 3.0 liter engine was known to walk out cam shaft seals. there are covers over the camshaft gears that can be removed and you should be able to see if the seal has came out
