Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada
Check engine light comes on for a few days, goes out for awhile, then back on for days. Autoscanner says the trouble code is the cam position sensor. Friends say if the sensor really is bad then the truck wouldn't run at all because that sensor controlls fuel injection and spark synchronization. I can clear the code but the light comes back on later. The truck starts/runs fine other than the damn light. Could something really be wrong with this sensor and the truck still run ok?
The cam position sensor tells your computer when the #1piston is in position and your vehicle will not run without it as it would not know when to fire the cylinders. However, you could be having intermittent problems with it which means it is failing but hasn't broken completely yet. Since you have a code in for the sensor I would check the wiring and connection. If all that looks ok then I would replace the sensor. Better to replace it before it completely fails and strands you someplace.
