Question From orangedome on camshaft position sensor

I have a 1997 saturn sl2 dual overhead cam. The read out is telling me I have a problem with the camshaft position sensor.I have not been able to locate one and is it located under the valve cover or outside on to block.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Please post the #s of your code reading. Just looked for "cam" sensor and didn't find location or if it had one but did show for crank sensor........


"Crankshaft Position Sensor1997 Saturn SL2 1.9L MFI DOHC 4cylThe Crankshaft Position Sensor is located:
Under hood, driver side, upper engine area, mounted on end of engine block
"


*************************
That's all I could find but that source is iffy too,

Response From orangedome

I didn't get #s on this one. What I got was.....camshaft position sensor A circuit bank 1 or single sensor....... I've looked at parts places and some say there is such a thing but even they don't have it when you click on that part? This is really screwwy.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

This is what another parts site says for the look up..............
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""
Sorry! No results were found for "Camshaft position sensor"
Is this item exclusive to your 1997 Saturn SL2? If it is a general part or accessory, clear your vehicle to broaden your search. Your vehicle will be saved in the search box drop-down for future searches.

IDK - See if you can recover or get a real code #. Remember that even when it says a code for a sensor circuit means the circuit not that it needs a sensor so fast just sees a problem there.
? See if you see anything unplugged near where cam gears would be I guess otherwise I'm lost with info I'm searching for too,

Response From orangedome

Thanks for your help friend.I'm going to take the valve cover of and take a look this weekend.I will let you know what I find out.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Sorry I couldn't find anything but know that I don't pay for pro software either. Just maybe it has a different name for a similar thing?


Don't quit yet if you have a warning for it or something you should pursue it. If this site doesn't have the answer or other ideas try a Saturn specific site maybe before you go hunting for something that doesn't exist.


Another here may come by and know so keep your settings to get a notice but I'm just coming up with it doesn't have such a thing,


Tom

Response From kev2

does not use a CMP sensor....
the PCM decerns the #1 TDC compression (cylinder firing) by comparing ign coil resistance when #1 fires into compression compared to firing into exhaust-

... check secondary ignition, be sure to use OEM - if all is good replace coil...

Response From Tom Greenleaf

With excellence Kev2 no surprise. I was beginning to think this was the planet Saturn with how little I found!



Tom

Response From Discretesignals

Kevin has it right.

Is this thing misfiring or running bad?

Would be nice to know which of the three CMP codes it is flagging.

98 Saturn SL1 - Turns over but doesnt Start

Showing 2 out of 3 Posts | Show 1 Hidden Posts
Question From drako717 on 98 Saturn SL1 - Turns over but doesnt Start

I have a 1998 Saturn SL1

My problem that I am having is I can start the car maybe once a day if im lucky.
About 2 minutes later it just dies.
The car has full electrical power and I can turn the starter over and fuel pump sounds like its working
I am pretty sure its not sparking.
What could be wrong?

Response From Hammer Time

All "crank, no start" conditions are approached in the same way. Every engine requires certain functions to be able to run. Some of these functions rely on specific components to work and some components are part of more than one function so it is important to see the whole picture to be able to conclude anything about what may have failed. Also, these functions can ONLY be tested during the failure. Any other time and they will simply test good because the problem isn't present at the moment.
If you approach this in any other way, you are merely guessing and that only serves to replace unnecessary parts and wastes money.



Every engine requires spark, fuel and compression to run. That's what we have to look for.

These are the basics that need to be tested and will give us the info required to isolate a cause.

1) Test for spark at the plug end of the wire using a spark tester. If none found, check for power supply on the + terminal of the coil with the key on.


2) Test for injector pulse using a small bulb called a noid light. If none found, check for power supply at one side of the injector with the key on.


3) Use a fuel pressure gauge to test for correct fuel pressure, also noticing if the pressure holds when key is shut off.

4) If all of these things check good, then you would need to do a complete compression test.

Once you have determined which of these functions has dropped out,
you will know which system is having the problem.

2000 saturn sl1

Showing 3 out of 3 Posts
Question From jordantipton on 2000 saturn sl1

I have a serious problem. My saturns service engine light was on for a month when my car started breaking down. Autozone diagnosed that it was the camshaft position sensor. I replaced the CRANKSHAFT position sensor, plugs and wires. Also i replaced the coolant temp sensor. My car still dies on me. But i did notice that when my car dies and wont start if i take off the battery wire for about a minute and then put it back on my car will start and run for a very short period. Can anyone please help me with this problem?

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer

Jordan; Autozone strikes again! Is the check engine light still on? When you disconnect the battery, the PCM will lose it's memory and go into a 'fail safe' mode. Then, it will take a drive cycle for it to relearn perameters. It's just like rebooting your PC at home. When it fires up, it goes thru different 'checks' before you can use it. As soon as the check engine light comes on, it will store a trouble code. Have that code read and post it here and we'll see what we can come up with. Don't let them sell you any more parts until we get to the bottom of this.

Response From Todd Norton

Hi Jordan ...........so auto zone diagnosed the problem to be a camshaft sensor and you replaced the Crankshaft sensor , any particular reason or was that a typo ?otherwise do as Loren says and report back k seeya Todd

Saturn not turning over!

Showing 2 out of 27 Posts | Show 25 Hidden Posts
Question From riddleboxboy on Saturn not turning over!

I have a 98 saturn sl1, single overhead cam and i think it's a 1.4 or 1.8 liter.

For the past several weeks i have had starting problems, it would start fine in the morning but if i tried to start it an hour or 2 later i would have to hold the gas all the way down to kill the fuel injectors and rev it for a bit to keep it from stalling again, well a bout a week ago i go to start the car after work and it just clicked.

I just replaced the Coolent temp sensor, battery and starter and not it keeps cranking but will not turn over or start, i have no idea what to do, i have already cleaned off the connectors and grounds as best as possible. please help!

Response From Sidom

Is the check engine light on? Is there any stored codes.

On a problem like this it would really help if you could look at a data stream to see what the sensors are reading...

I've had 3 Saturns with this same problem that turned out to be coolant temp sensors.... I see you've replaced yours but it would be nice to see what the comp is seeing.

Did the connecter fit tight when you changed it?

Response From riddleboxboy Top Rated Answer

The connector is tight, and yes the check engine light IS on, it has been on and off sporadically for a little while now, as for the codes, unfortunately i live about 12 miles from the closest auto parts store and as the car won't start i cannot bring it in to have the codes checked, I (probably stupidly) assumed that it was because of the CTS so i didnt bother getting it checked.

In the morning i am going to get up extra early and check everything again and just hope it works before i have to go to work. I'm just hoping its something simple and not a whole new part i need to buy like the Crankshaft position sensor.

I did however also notice that even after replacing the CTS when i turn the key to the ON position the temp gauge goes up to the middle marker. I'm not sure what that means, i'm assuming its because the car hasnt ran since it was replaced that it hasn't "learned" the proper temperature yet.

Response From Sidom

Well it was a pretty good guess considering it will start good cold & need to be clear flooded to start warm.

Best thing to do is get the codes read to see if you can get any direction from that.

Response From riddleboxboy

I noticed this morning when i went out that the battery cables didnt look like they were seated properly so i assumed maybe it just wasnt connected quite enough to turn over. But while tightening the negative post, i noticed as soon as it starts to get tighter than like finger turning tightness that it "slipped" back to completely loose, so im going to by a new post today if possible, i'm not sure what effect, if any that could have.


I'm just hoping i dont need a crank position sensor because now i have no jack thats safe enough for me to get under the car and get to it because its located above the starter which is located in the middle of the rear of the engine between a bunch of stuff.

Response From Sidom

You always want to make sure you have a good battery and connections before doing anything else so that's a good start...

FYI there is no hydraulic jack in the world safe enough where you could get under a vehicle with out jack stands for support and don't let me catch you under there without your safety glasses either......

Response From riddleboxboy

Well as i said, my friend forgot the code reader, but now i noticed that i do hear the fuel pump working, so i'm going to assume that it is a spark issue. Could changing the spark plugs and or wires fix this possibly? I just replaced the plugs and wires about last july or august. I'm not sure if it could be that simple or not, i did pull them out and they all looked pretty "worn in", as in had some burn marks on them. I figure that is normal but im trying to see if anything cheap and simple could be the problem.

Response From riddleboxboy

So now my girlfriend just wants me to call a garage to tow it away and work on it, then just pay em when taxes come in. i really dont want to do this because if it turns out to be something i could have spent $20 on and fixed myself i dont want to have to spend hundreds of dollars due to un needed testing or work, plus the tow bill. I just want to figure this problem out and fast.

Response From Sidom

I hear ya it would be nice to save some money but on the other hand you don't want to blow a bunch either only to have to taken it in anyway......... I may have missed something but I thought this was a hard start when warm, now it sounds like a no start....

Some systems use 1 temp sensors & some use 2, my database is only showing one but I seem to remember one of the Saturns having 2. On the one you changed look again a little deeper & more to the left and see if there isn't another one, if there is that would be the one for the comp.

If it isn't starting at all now, then you need to confirm spark, fuel pressure and injector pulse to start with. I know you said you can hear the pump but if this comes down to a fuel problem, a pressure reading will need to be taken at some point before getting to deep into it...........

Response From riddleboxboy

Yeah i think i'm just going to cave and have it towed in and see if they can give me some kind of qoute before they do anything.

Response From riddleboxboy

A friend came over today with a code reader of some sorts but i guess it just goes through everything and tells you whats working and whats not, apparently, iys saying tht my h02 sensor is not on, would that cause the car to not start?

Response From Sidom

No that's not going to cause a no start.

Normally on no starts you check for fuel & spark 1st but considering the nature of your problem I would be tempted to pull the plugs out & make sure they aren't fuel fouled since it had be running just starting hard warm ............

Response From riddleboxboy

The other day when my friend was here he said he pulled the plugs and looked/smelled inside and didnt see or smell any gas, but i do hear the fuel pump working, i'm at a loss

Response From riddleboxboy

Response From nickwarner

put a fuel pressure gauge on it. Sometimes a pump will make noise and do nothing helpful, much like my ex wife. And just like my ex wife, you almost think its working until you verify its just making noise and wasting time and money of yours.

Response From riddleboxboy

Well a mechanic my girlfriends son knows, had the same car, same model, year, everything, he said the same exact thing happened, it turned out to be the coil packs and control module (i think) both went at the same time, he offered to sell me both coil packs and the control module for $75, which is an amazing steal of a price. the question is, does anyone here know where thats located on a 98 saturn, sl1 1.9 liter SOHC? i dont wanna buy em if i cant even put em in.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

That's a steal if new and you need them.......

Just looked to see how they are installed and by looking at parts one bolt secure both but not certain.

You definitely don't want to break a bolt! Use copious PB rust buster as needed or good penetrating oil.

Module looks like this..........

/

The coil packs are at the other end of plug wires look like this......

/

Use silicone or dialectic grease which may come with the parts on threaded bolts and it may say (should) to put some where they contact,

T

Response From riddleboxboy

Yeah the coil packs are one bolt, i can easily access them i just wasn't sure about the control modules location

Response From Hammer Time

The Ignition Module is right under the coil packs and held on by the 2 bolts in each coil.

Response From riddleboxboy

Ty i just found that as well, thnx to autozones online repair guides, im going to buy the parts most likely, ill update after the switch, thnx everyone :)

Response From riddleboxboy

Well i replaced the coil packs and the control module, still no spark and now no fuel, but i think my fuel line is probably frozen. I gave up and called a garage, there coming to tow it in either tonight or tommorow to look at it and let me know the deal.

Response From riddleboxboy

Well turns out, that when my girlfriends son replaced my starter he pinched and broke a wire, so replacing the coil packs and control module was useless, as soon as the mechanic fixed the wire it worked, BUT the control module that i bought was shot so it wasnt firing on all cylinders, fortunately i kept the original one so the mechanic drove over and picked it up. now it runs fine he said, i'm having him change out the water pump, which caused the coolant leak, and the cooling fan motor which obviously caused the overheating. grand total give or take including tow,parts, and labor $650.


i dont know to much about prices but seems like a good deal to me and im more than happy to pay it. i actually asked to replace the fan so its not like he was trying to "make" me buy useless stuff.

Response From Sidom

Glad to see you finally got it worked out......Thx for letting us know the what the problem was......

If this was for everything including diag'ing the orginal problem then it sounds very reasonable.

Response From riddleboxboy

Yes, that is everything, towing, diagnosing, labor, parts, tax all of that good stuff and like i said, the mechanic (who is not a friend or anything) too his own time to drive out to my house and pick up the old part to try it before just having me buy a whole new one, so looks like i'll be back on the road in a day or two. i guess a good thing for everyone to remember would be to CHECK YOUR WIRES after removing or installing something. this fact could've saved me about 6 weeks of time and $735 in total. Thanks again for everyones help and suggestions. :)

Response From riddleboxboy

Lol yeah i know, i dont have jack stands so i jacked it up enough to put ramps under the tires (my driveway wont allow me to simply push the car up them) As for the safety glasses, i do need to pick some up.

I was hoping to have some more definite answers tonight but my buddy from work forgot to bring in his code reader so its still gonna be another day or two before i now more, because i'm clear out of ideas and i dont want to risk making the issue worse by messing with everything.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Ramps: Not a fan of them but they are everywhere. To heck with the car - don't get crushed! Level solid surface and make certain park brake is strong. Use of large logs or solid cement blocks could be safe.

No joke - had ramps once - they squished like a soda can on me way long ago but slow enough I got out! Jockey any car hoisted in any manner before you get under one as it shouldn't budge. What can happen is you pry or put force on some item while underside and car moves or falls.

Surely I speak for all the regular techs here - SAFETY FIRST! No car/vehicle is worth getting hurt or killed over!

With little doubt, many of us have seen what can happen but lucky enough to be here. If you lack proper stuff get it somehow. We want you back unharmed,

Makes me glad I have a hoist. I hated all the years working in my driveway with ramps and wood blocks. Had a friend have a Firebird come off the jackstands since he had very cheap ones. Pushed his head through the back of his creeper. But he's got his 9 lives I guess. Five stitches in his forehead later and he was fine. But he's the exception to the rule.

'05 Chevy Colorado Strange Idle Problem

Question From aakers79 on '05 Chevy Colorado Strange Idle Problem

I have a 2005 chevy colorado 4cylinder, 5 speed manual, 58K miles, and I have had a recurring problem with an erratic idle. The problem occurs usually when I am coasting with the clutch in or in neutral, which I normally do when coming to a stop. The RPM's will drop as they normally should when not applying any throttle, but they continue to drop below 500 rpms, which causes the truck to shudder. The RPM's usually "bounce" back up to normal and then drop down low again.

The first time this happened was about a month after I had bought it and the truck had around 50K miles. The problem happened infrequently at first and I didn't think much of it until it got worse. Soon the engine light came on and I got the trouble code for a communication error between the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor. I replaced the camshaft sensor and wiggled some wires around but the problem persisted. The crankshaft position sensor is not available to purchase yet and so I brought the truck in to the shop. They said that I had a major misfire but they didn't know why. They reset the computer and the truck ran fine. I got off light paying only $125.

The problem returned in 2 months gradually but got worse much faster and this time the truck stalled a few times when I started it and the check engine light was back on. I managed to get it on the road and I got a trouble signal that said that I had "reduced power" but I managed to make it to the local Chevy dealer (less than a mile away).

This shop said that it was the "crankshaft solenoid" which I didn't know existed, and they charged me $300 for the job. The truck was fine for a few more weeks.

Now the problem occurs on occasion but has not yet gotten too bad. The engine light has not come back on either, but I don't want to wait too long for it to come back.

Does anyone have any ideas for me? I don't want to sink any more money into this problem and I do consider myself to be mechanically inclined, but I am stumped on this one.

Hello I had the same problem with my 05 chevy colorado I had the problems you spoke of and it got even worse it stoppoed ideling. It was a easy fix I dont know if you can get your hands on a truck code computer but if not just get carb choke and throddle body cleaner take off the aircleaner box and remove the throttle body there will be carbon in it where the flap is clean it real good and put it all back togther after it is together clear all the codes. start the truck after clearing the codes it will run ruff. Trun the engine off wait 2 min and turn it back on the truck will run perfect. If you dont have a code reader go to the auto part store most will read it for free and ask them to just clear the codes. steve
