Did you replace both crank and cam position sensor? I wasn't sure about which CPS you meant.

Best Answer

I only replaced crank position sensor


Try cam position sensor as well it would be worth your time in my opinion. we didn't know which one of mine were doing it as they both can so we did both and it stopped. Also sorry for the delayed response.

Chan68 thanx for the input n ya I took time to get back to you coz of the shift I was working where is the location of the crank sensor
