2006 Chevy Impala SS. Engine light came on while enroute to Jiffy Lube. They said it is coming up as cam shaft. Am taking to Radley Chev. How long does this take approximately & is this dangerous to engine? I have a CNA warranty. Thank you so much. (Will also need to check for the 4th time Service Pressure Tire Monitor System is always coming on, not so worried more annoyed.)

The engine light means you have a code stored that can be read.
A place like Autozone will read it for free.
Only with the code can we tell if it is serious or minor.

Where is the cam sensor located on 2006 chevy impala


Not sure what engine you have but normaly its inside the dist houseing .
But I have to say its likely not your problem its a solid state thing sealed and dosn't come into contact with anything .It s what they the hall vane effict it electro magneticly senses a gap in the metal part spining under the rotor.
You would be seeing the MIL light come on and code po1345 would come up if you read it CKP/CMP .You see its a correlation between the crank shaft pisition and the cam shaft pisition that this is sensening.

The last couple of week the gages somtime will not work somtime its all of them sometimes its only the speedometor. Now it will not start is a 2008 chevy impala ss


Sounds like a power loss issue than a gauge problem if all are cutting out and especially if you can't start. This could be numerous things but off the top of my head I'd say you either have a short to the computer, computer dying or bad ASD relay but might be called something else on that car, like MFI relay that shuts everything down. Only other things I would relate to this and usually causes stalling is the crank and cam shaft sensors. They don't give a signal car dies and/or car wont start. Does your check engine light come on when you turn the key to ON (not starting)? If it doesn't come on for the 3 seconds then you computer has no power, shorted out or dead.

Check engine light comes on (Oxygen Sensor "Pending"), go's on and off. ???? 06 Kia Spectra 5-speed


I have a 2006 Kia Spectra hatchback 4D. It was a show room car and I'm leasing it since March 2009. The engine light comes on and off intermentaly. I took it in the Kia dealership in Calgary AB many twice and first time they said it was a part they needed flown in. Same issue after the part was tested, now they say they need to look at the wiring so they need take the engine out. I had it hooked up at Jiffy Lube free of charge and they said it was O2 sensory issue, take it to a mechanic and get it fixed there. Jiffy people said that dealerships dont care about the maintenance aspect of cars. They recommended me to take it to mechanics. Shouldn't the KIA people have picked up on the O2 sensor since its a computer diagnostic reading ?

Sensors went bad, at 60 k miles, is this covered in warranty


you need to take the vehicle to a real mechanic. Jiffy lube employes are not mechanics. Change your oil at jiffy lube and get mechanical work done at a reputable auto dealer or mechanic shop.
