easter egg hunt 1,000,000, why?
if you scan the PCM and there are no ckp or cmp errors
why ask this, the PCM will report even 1 pulse in 10 dropped out
the FSM stated that in clear english, (factor serv. man)
scan it first, or you will go broke , I PROMISE.

double posted, why>?
well, its a H25 engines (or h27 too)
if you look at the engine,
this V6 , hood up, the left rear cam runs the cam sensor.
left as in left car door side,
i did not say drivers side, as the car is sold in UK and that be different side.
the left cam is that cam , on the left while the driver is seated in his drivers seat.
In the USA that is left side of car.

here are most the parts on this engine
see this free PDF


the cam sensor looks like this on a scope

year 2000 usa, only, if not usa, nows the time to say, ok?

Smoking on start up. What color is the smoke. White.
If you car does while driving that makes me guess a fuel supply issue or over heating. You may also have a bad sensor telling the computer to shut down to save the engine from damage. If you don't know much about car repairs. It may be time to take it in for a tune up or do it yourself. Inspect the air cleaner and pipes for cloggs or air pipes for cracks. Check vacuum hoses for damage. Could be many things leading to what might be a simple fix. If it's the fuel pump that will be alot more expensive to fix. Change the fuel filter also if the pump is bad if it's not been done.

your power relay supplying the glow plugs may be stuck(welded contacts)on and need replace

ok its just an electric dc motor.
what can cause no up, failure.
1: not getting full 12vdc to motor,.(uses a $10 voltmeter to not guess) if why low, then the power feed is bad there. say below 10v. keep in mind motor overloads can cause V drop,.(V= I square x R, ohms law)
2: guides bad overloading the motor.s
3: if the hot wiring the motor does not move it up that means.
what,? motor bad, or guide jammed. (reverse wires to go up, reverse to go down, 12vd on one wire, ground the other. 2 pins.
so we remove motor and operate it by hand to see if guides are ok,. (not hands on motor but its guide drive end)
4: later years, they added a child proof clutch to prevent johnny from crushing suzy head for fun. really. and clutches do fail and slip, you'd hear it slip, I cant.
or if the guide is jammed said clutch slips and thinks bad johnny deal.
i think yours has no clutch. in 2000. my 04 did not.
it's just motor , a switch and a guide.
many this old are bad guides. jammed. up.

Don't forget you need your foot on the brake.

I would think the blower motor is defective, the brushes are worn out and that explains the intermittent operation.
