Chey Dducloseille: what is the cause for changing this sensor? is it the needle bouncing on the tachometer gauge? engine on full throttle running weird; like it's got bad fuel? mine is...buts it not the fuel..
Jason Poole: Brian, I learned the hard way to replace my camshaft sensor. Your video made it seem a lot easier. Would you happen to have any advise or video on replacing the neutral safety switch, or reverse switch, on a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 turbo diesel?
yokelmike: Thanks for the tips – they helped a ton. I just replaced the Cam Position Sensor in my 2000 Dodge Ram Diesel. 4 tips helped, 1) knowing the tool size 5mm, 2) reaching the screw from above and behind the engine mount, 3) using a flat blade screwdriver to pry out the sensor (more like pop out), 4) knowing the sensor was pushed in not screwed in. When I saw threads on the replacement part I thought that’s going to be tough to not cross thread. I eyeballed the sensor, and then removed the connector from below, reaching up and doing it blindly; because I was so contorted I could see and do at the same time. Pushing back the locking tab was the tough part. Then I did undo the intake rubber hose for better access and I removed the mounting screw by working from above the engine. Then I got back underneath and popped out the sensor with the screwdriver. Installation was easier than removal. Toughest part was getting the mounting screw started. I did this from above working totally by feel since my face was against the block while one hand was on the ratchet and the other on the screw. I cleared the Code and NO MORE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. Thanks!
joeaksa: You mention the two codes in the video. I am having both the P1689 and the P0216 code at times.
The 1689 code came on, and then message "CCW" came in the overhead display window, then several months later I got the 216 code. Am assuming that I have two separate problems? This is for a 2002 5.9 Cummins. Thx, Joe
crimsonwolf199: Ok not sure which code it is, but maybe you can tell me. Is it the sensor when the code reads "no cam speed detected" or do you suppose I have a different problem all together?
Michael Banks: I need help witha 1996 chevy duty truck 3500 350 I can not find the cam shaft sensor.
Isaac Scheer: How would you change it in a 12 valve? I have a 97. I can't find anything on how to replace the crank shaft position sensor on my truck.
yikes2x: awesome! took my 1999 dodge to Goodyear, couldn't diagnose the problem. told me to take it to the dealer. dealer told me it was another problem. denied repair because they said the used part was $834.00. total with labor is $1200. took it to another mechanic i used before and he said it was the crank shaft sensor. he asked and guess the reading on the odometer saying "no buss" whew! saved me $1200. kinda sorta.
Clayton Durham: hahaha, obviously NOT a cummins guy. 2nd gens were made up until 2002, and you pointed about 6" away from your injection pump. PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO REPLACE YOUR INJECTION PUMP, IT IS NOT WHERE HE POINTED. I commend your efforts though.....always learning.
Michael Johnson: I have a 5.9L cummins as well. but 2005.. I have looked everywhere for a video to replace my crankshaft sensor. Some websites state that the truck doesn't have one. But i know it does. I think i have found it by the fly wheel... LOL
Mikey robinson: by the starter ?
Ernesto Contreras: My truck ram 1500 wont go over 3500 rpm! Could this be the camshaft sensor?
smittys73: Thank you so much !!!! I'm going to replace mine.
77greengiant: Ok broke the ear off the sensor trying the screwdriver trick 2hrs into this job. This is insane. It won't turn either.
joe b: hi thank for the help can you tell me are the sensor the same front a rear dodge has the short one in both holes when i try to buy parts store has two CSS987 is the long one wont fit in front hole . CSS1060 is the short one will it work in the rear hole by the pumps both part num are bwd thanks
joe b: thank for the help i will give it a try
briansmobile1: Yes I can. Your computer will often times throw a P0341 code when it's actually a crank sensor. It senses the discrepancy between the two. Very common on these.
joe b: i have a 07 5.9. dodge put new cam and cam sensor last year keeps blowing po341 i put new sensor in still get code po341 can you help
briansmobile1: Estos dos códigos tienen que ver con los programas de ordenador no responde. Esto puede suceder si la bomba de inyección de combustible falla.
Yocelin Jiménez: hola tengo una ram 2500 4x4 cummins 24v y el escaner me arroja los codigos P1693 y P0602 tienes alguna idea de que significan. slds
