Cam shaft has grabbed after head gasket replaced. Several journals appear to be short of lube, but others are not. There is oil lying on top of head so the cam should be lubing.

Remove the cam and double check the journals. If the truck had gotten hot enough, it could've scarred the journals. Make sure the journals are nice and smooth. If they're not, it will cause a bind on the camshaft causing it to "grab". I just went through this on a Lincoln Navigator.

I'm looking for a timing cam cover for a 1996 Volvo 960

Hi there well here's a link to get the parts = .The oil pan does not have a gasket, it uses the same sealant/glue as the head top. Are you sure you have a leak at those seams? Oil can migrate and be actually from a different source. Oil filler gasket, cam seals, oil cooler orings, oil separator hoses and housing are typical leakers.

And there is no way to avoid messing with the cams, removing the head top frees up the cams. But no special tools are required, it just makes the job simpler and quicker, something a dealer would invest in if they are going to do several heads on this model.

Use the Volvo sealant/glue, it is easy to work with and is worth the extra cost, also it is orange in color and makes it easy to view when applying. Cleaning the old material off is going to be the hardest and dirtiest part of the job. It is tedious and one has to exercise great caution to not scratch the mating surfaces, so using plastic scrapers or some hard wood, I have used chop sticks. If it does look like you need to do the oil pan, that is going to be a real pain, but also order the seals for the oil pick up tube, might as well renew those while the oil pan is off.

Good luck

The cam shaft journals are not receiving oil on my 1983 suzuki samurai 1.3 after there was a head job done, do you know what might be the reason?

Not without taking the head back off. Could be a problem with the head gasket blocking one of the oil passages, or foreign matter in the passage, or in the oil holes in the head for the cam bearings.

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

Oil gage goes to zero when i stop but goes up when i take off also using lots of oil but no smoke out the exhaust does this mean my oil pump is going bad 1996 isuzu rodeo

May mean yor engine is burning the oil or you have a leak.
Look in coolant recovery tank or radiator when vehicle is cold and is if coolant is milky or there is oil in it.If either of these conditions are there you may have a bad head gasket.
If none of these conditions are there then have the vehicle inspected for oil leaks.
Arears to focus on: Rear main seal,oil pan,valve cover gaskets, cam and crank shaft seals, oil pump seal and gasket.
Good luck

Oil pump replacement, location of it, nomenclature

Remove oil pan and pump is bolted to back main bearing cap. But this is most likely not the problem. This engine is known for cam bearings spinning out of the block and cam shaft breaking inbetween #3 and 4 cam journals, oil pump is driven off the end of camshaft, engine runs very rough and makes all kinds of noise when this happens, cure is a new engine. to check for broken cam shaft removed front valve cover, have some one start or crank the engine, the 2 rocker arms on the drivers side will not move at all, most likely there will be silver metal dust laying in the low spots of the head where oil puddles up.

My toyota vienta 3VZ-FE 1996 - oil leak onto exhaust


That engine will leak oil from

- cam cover gaskets (rear one drips on the exhaust)
- camshaft end seals
- distributor shaft o-ring (appears on top of transaxle housing)
- oil filter bracket to block o-ring seal (drips on front bank exhaust)
- crankshaft nose oil seal (have done with timing belt change)
- rear main seal (expensive, leave it be)

Where do i find the camshaft position sensor A on a 1995 plymouth neon

Why are you looking for a cam sensor (cmp). You can test the sensor for any and all diagnostics up above in the harness for the 5v reference signal that allows it to operate properly. You can also check the pulse/signal in the harness as well.

It's either on the front of the head or the back, however, your model, depending on the engine, may have a camshaft synchronizer, in whch case it would appear to take the place of where a distributor would have been. I think the cam sensors on the chryslers are on the front and the crank (ckp) sensor (engine speed sensor according to Chrysler) is in the back down low by the rear of the engine.

What's the problem you're trying to solve? A crank, no start? Surging?
