have you verified that your getting fuel to the rail?


Did you properly set the timing after installing the crank/cam position sensor(two in one sensor on back bank by intake tube)? Or has yours been converted to the two separate sensors under the timing belt cover?


why do you have to mess with the timing after replacing the crank/cam position sensors dandyoun?

Opps got my years wrong. Thanks Daniel for making me double check myself. Old fart here. Lol No need to adjust yours Sunshine unless yours has been changed over to the older style. On 91-92 the sensor(two sensors in one mounted to the intake cam of the back bank right by inlet tube of throttle body) are adjustable and if you changed the sensor it will need tweeking. The sensor has a slotted adjustment that is used to get the timing back adjusted. 93-99 has two separate sensors that bolt solid in one place and are not adjustable. Some tuners prefer the older sensors for the ability to retard their timing as needed.

Daniel I am getting fuel to the rail. After replacing the fuel pump and filter the car still didn't start so we replaced the crank shaft sensor and the car ran. I drove it for about 3 weeks before it started acting the same as it did before we replaced everything. Is there a way to test the crank shaft sensor to see if it is bad?


When the crank shaft sensor was replaced the harmonic balancer wasn't put on properly it was of balance. Could that have caused the crank shaft sensor to go bad?


I believe it might have something to do with it,, have you tried to pull any codes though? heres how to test it though, I mean besides pulling codes which I would do anyways http://www.3si.org/wiki/index.php?title=CAS%2C_Crank_and_CAM_Angle_Sensors


ECU will cause these same sort of problems though by the way


what get figured out sunshine? if you need help with pulling the codes I can help you with that too
