Camshaft Position Sensor

This vehicle does not have a Camshaft Position Sensor. The manufacture does make references to "CAM" in some of the trouble code descriptions but this is NOT a reference to a Camshaft Position Sensor.

Notes On System Inputs

The EI module does not receive a signal from the crankshaft position sensor. Instead the CPK sensor signal is being received and processed by the PCM. The El module does, however, contain circuitry to determine camshaft position without using a camshaft sensor, by use of compression sense ignition (CSI).

2007 Saturn Aura XR 3.6 code p00116. new timing chains and all parts...128,000 miles any ideas besides the crankshaft reluctor.. Car runs great idols smooth


you got a bit carried away with the code
code p 0016 refers to crank shaft position/cam shaft position sensor, bank 1 sensor A---correlation === causes --wiring---CKP sensor --CMP sensor ---mechanical fault
code p 0011 refers to cam shaft (CMP) intake /left /front bank 1 --timing over advanced / system performance==== causes ---valve timing---engine mechanical fault --- CMP actuator ---wiring
you didn't mention the fault so consider this
if the timing is out on the intake cam shaft , it will idle good but play up as the timing actuator moves it further advanced with rpm
if the actuator is not wire properly or the solenoid is faulty , then the inlet will lag with increased rpm and again cause you problems
It is doubtful if the position sensors for either the crank or cam shafts are a problem because it starts and idles good

Have you checked for vacuum leaks ?

Spray a small amount of starting fluid around all suspected areas and if it revs up that's where you leak is.

02 saturn idles high


Maybe it was the pcv hose. Try disconnecting hoses from the intake manifold and plugging the manifold ports. If plugging a certain port causes the idle to drop, whatever was connected there is causing the excessive flow.

Idol very high 3000rpm possable idol sensor


throttle positioning sensor voltage should run around 1 volt at idle. If you unplug the sensor the car should still run on the presets in the computer, this will turn on the check engine light but if the RPM's drop down to normal replace the tps.

maybe a dicky cam sensor even if new! make sure the cam sensor is aligned correctly as if its out even a small amount the car will not run. check it is in place correctly.

Is the car trying to start? or are you getting nothing when turning the key?

I have a saturn 2001 sl2 and the car will not pass emission test because the test showed a code P0341 camshaft sensor the car dos'nt have a cameshaft sensor I'm leanning toward the coil or camshaf sensor...


If there is a good spark, then the crank sensor should be good, and module and packs should be fine. It may be crank sensor or ignition module. Are you getting good fuel pressure? You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual. Much better than the books.

Idoling


place a vacuum gauge on the manifold, start the engine and, look for a cracked or, leaking vacuum line or, connector too much air entering the engine from a leak causes the rpm's to shoot up
