What should I expect this to cost? They are both owned by the same people. Sludge builds up in the ports and oil no longer flows to move the cam phaser. The tensioner couldn't hold the tension without the oil pressure. Tech 2 so they can legally pickpocket you by forcing you to come in. In addition, you might also have some different symptoms when compared to the failure of the camshaft position actuator. Start the engine, P1345 comes right back up.
Below in the diagnosis and repair tips section we'll talk about what it takes to remove the camshaft position actuator so you can verify the holes are plugged with sludge. The chevy dealer in town. I believe it was P0014 back then. I'm amazed how difficult the auto industry has made this. The solenoid uses oil pressure to move the cam phaser. I might just have to take it in the shorts. And clean all the sensor terminals.
Since both of these components remain relatively inexpensive, I'm now recommending to my customers that they replace both parts at the same time. In fact, the computer might set engine misfire codes when you have problems with the sensor or the timing solenoid. Trailblazer Camshaft Position Actuator I wanted to cover the Trailblazer camshaft position actuator problem first. This code is a very strong indication of communication failure between the cam and crank shaft sensors. Have I missed an easy test? However, when you have problems with the Trailblazer camshaft position sensor you'll often set a completely different check engine light code.
When the solenoid starts to experience problems you often set a check engine light code of P1345. You do need either a wedge tool or the hook tools to keep the tension on the chain while the phaser is out. This becomes an intermittent stalling problem that drives you crazy. This relationship is used to determine camshaft actuator position and control its phasing at the correct value. The hardest part might actually be disconnecting the electrical connector.
I expect to get a bit reamed by the dealership, but I'm not sure how much reaming is reasonable. I'm willing to replace the cam and crank sensors on the top and the front of the motor but I'd like to ask if anyone has experience with this and what they did to clear the service engine light. The P1345 could be caused by the P0014. Each notch, or feature of the reluctor wheel is of a different size for individual cylinder identification. So I've been googling and reading about P1345 all day, and I thought I'd give this forum a try before I hand over a wad of cash to a shop.
Seems odd that it should work for 100k miles and then stop. The pulse from the 10 degree slot is known as the sync pulse. In fact the two most common codes associated with the camshaft position sensor failure remain the P0340. First thing I would do is make sure you don't have any loose wires at the camshaft position sensor. Regards, netvan Feb 26, 2011 beleive it or not changing the oil if dirty will solve this code, also found that connector gets oil in it and that also makes p1345 code turn on, open connector and look for oil in it,look at sensor and actuator plugs for oil,the main plug connector is the actuator plug it fills with oil and makes contact between pins setting p1345 code, hope this helps. Refer to Crankshaft Balancer Replacement in Engine Mechanical. If it is sludge you could always try choke cleaner to clean it off and free it up maybe.
However, if we start with diagnosis of the P0013 and the P0014 we solve the problem, clear the codes, and deal with any of the additional codes that return. Beleive it or not changing the oil if dirty will solve this code, also found that connector gets oil in it and that also makes p1345 code turn on, open connector and look for oil in it,look at sensor and actuator plugs for oil,the main plug connector is the actuator plug it fills with oil and makes contact between pins setting p1345 code, hope this helps. It could be the Cam position sensor, the crank position sensor , the gear on the distributor or the timing chain. One just reports on the position and the other one physically provides movement of the cam phaser. Would this be an adequate test? I would image with a tech 2 scanner you could command the phaser and see what happens.
Unless I have overlooked a check that can be done without removing at least the valve cover and inspecting and then possibly going farther to remove timing cover and checking timing, I feel like thats I my next move. Si están alineados entonces debes utilizar el scanner para recalibrar el retardo de ejes de levas es el procedimiento normal luego del ajuste del motor. Refer to Using Connector Test Adapters Wiring Systems. After the crankshaft position sensor what changed out, it stayed off for a few more days. One or both of the sensors mentioned may be out of order or misaligned, thus, not allowing for an efficient pulse ping. Once I changed it, all was good until I had to change the timing chain tensioner a couple years later and it came back. I was thinking the phaser as the next suspect.
As a small rant, I don't understand why the firmware engineers don't include additional diagnostic information. Took it to Henderson Chevrolet on Gibson. This is a quick and easy test using an. This code reader will allow you to run specific test that will isolate which sensors is damaged or if there are simple issues that exist in the wiring at each sensor. This is why mechanics believe in starting diagnosis with the lowest number code first.
