Caution: The magnetic timing wheels must not come in contact with magnets or any other strong magnetic field. This will destroy the timing wheels ability to correctly relay camshaft position to the camshaft position sensor.

Installation

 

1. Clean out the camshaft position sensor mounting hole (2) in cylinder head.

 

2. The CMP sensor seal (1) can be reused if not damaged.

3. If required, install a new CMP sensor seal (2( in the cylinder head cover.

  • Lubricate the CMP sensor  seal inner and outer diameters with clean engine oil.
  • Place the CMP sensor seal (2) on the Cam sensor/ spark plug tube seal installer (1)
  • Push the seal into the cylinder head cover until the base of the seal is seated.
  • Remove the tool.

Note: A properly installed CMP sensor seal (1) will have a 1.5-2.0mm gap (2) between the cylinder head cover and the seal upper flange.

4. The sensor mounting bolt O-ring (1) can be reused if not damaged.

 

5. Apply a small amount of engine oil to the sensor mounting bolt 0-ring (1).

The CMP sensor identifies the position of the camshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM). The ECM uses this data to determine the timing of the ignition, as well as the timing of the fuel injection required by the engine. When the sensor fails to do its job, the engine can’t function properly.

When not replaced, the vehicle could experience hard starting (or failure to start), long crank time, misfire, decreased power, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy or intermittent shutdown … all fine reasons to replace the camshaft position sensor.

Often, these symptoms will be accompanied by the dreaded “check engine” light. If so, an automotive computer scanner should be able to confirm whether or not the sensor is the problem. Many automotive supply stores will scan your vehicle’s onboard diagnostic system free of charge.

If you determine the camshaft position sensor is the problem, the good news is that replacement is usually very simple, if you can easily gain access to the sensor. The CMP sensor is mounted in several different places, depending on the model. The sensors are specific to vehicle and range in price from $10 to more than $80.
