Question about 2003 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Just had my heads rebuilt, new spark plugs and wiring,new harmonic pulley replace and serpetine belt replaced. Car started ran a little bit then when I turned it off and came back out to start it again it won't start. Getting spark, fuel and compression, had check engine light come on and they said it was the camshaft senor code. Should I replace my camshaft senor?

Do I have to reset the timing belt if I do this?


No you will not have to reset the timing belt. I would not use the rope down a spark plug hole as there would be a good chance of bending a valve or rod.
Find some way of stopping the engine from rotating at the fly wheel or flex plate.

Car not firing


Most likely the valves were bent.
When you attempt to start the motor does it turns over a bit fast and will not sound quit right - Not even attempt to spark up or fire up.
Check engine cylinder compression. The valves were bent when the belt broke.
you will
1. check compression (and when it fails)
2. decide to have the head checked and if possible rebuilt (use new head bolts)
or
3. Look for and buy a low milage used motor
or
4. Look for a rebuilt head

If it ran prior to removing the distributor, it maybe 180 degrees out. Remove the cap, leave the rotor in place, loosen the bolt and lift it up,turn rotor until it is on the opposite side and place it back in.

When replacing head gasket you had to disconnect and move spark plug wires and coil wire.Sounds to me if it ran for a little while then died out look for a burned wire by exhaust manifold.Something must of shorted out.Thats why it ran a little while and died.

Changed timing belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 car no


if you have a no spark scenario i would check your crank sensor located at the top left side of the harmonic balance pulley.the crankshaft (about 11'oclock) a 2 wire plug with a sensor on it check to see if it is damaged or unsecured. this sensor can cause no spark if not working correctly. This sensor is based of frequency not voltage testing is difficult, just make sure that there isnt too muck air gap. and that it is secured.Lastly may want to check timing possible that the belt has jumped some teeth and she has fallen out of timing. maybe a bad tensioner The coil will adapt i think up to 10 degree, ****** or advance. Good luck

I will try to help you. You are correct about the starting fluid, if it has fire starting fluid should do something. So the problem must be either no fire to the plugs or the timing belt is broke.

Check to see if the plugs have spark. If they do not, then get with the Autoparts store and ask if your car needs a Ignition relay to run. Then ask if your car takes a rubber timing belt. If your car does not have a rubber timing belt try the Ignition relay. If you do have a rubber belt check behind the shield in front of the engine to see if the timing belt is broke.

The timing belt is different than the serpetine belt that drives the pulleys. Cars with rubber timing belts have both belts. Should your timing belt be broken it is not an expensive repair. But you will need to details on replacement of that part.

How do i change the camshaft sensor on a 1999 daewoo nubira?


read all of this before you begin! you may be able to skip a step that i couldnt !no.you dont have to remove the timing belt but check it. i did this to my nubira like two months ago. the belt felt loose but i didnt change it and now my car is on the side of the road) remove breather box. remove spark plug cover(top of engine two allen screws).see cam pos sen. wire clip at front of engine facing down, dont try to remove yet. clips are at the top sides of timing belt cover. from under the car remove plastic covers where you may find them on the pulley side and passenger side wheel well. using socket wrench relieve tension on torsion wheel(smallest pulley your s-belt crosses) by pushing up. release s-belt and remove(you may want to draw a quick diagram of how your belt is ran before removing). now remove the bolts from the timing belt cover.(when i did this i was also changing my harmonic balancer or crank pulley,if it is in the way of bolts remove the four bolts with a allen wrench,loosen it with the s-belt still on and car in fifth gear if standard to keep crank from turning. next place a long board or plank under the engine (across trans-housing,oil pan, as little on the oil pan as possible . place a jack at the center of the board and gently raise the engine. this relieves pressure from the top engine mount. remove the engine mount entirely. remove all screws from timing belt cover. remove cover. you will see two camshft gears at the top of the engine just below them you will see one star head screw(can usually be removed with an alle n wrench). it hold the cam pos sensor in place, remove then pull sensor out the top of the motor. sometimes they're a little bit stuck down in there. just pry a little but dont pull on wires! once removed disconnect wire replace, and rebuild. hope this helps
