ECM and Crank Sensor were replaced Mar 2001.
Replaced Cam Sensor and Check Engine Light is constant now. Removed Cam Sensor and rotated engine to inspect Magnet. No Magnet, only some what looks like some metal shavings and plastic holder. Guess there was enough magnet/shavings there to give intermittent reading.
While I have this all torn apart I am putting in new Timing Gears, rebuilding the Oil Pump and replace the Camshaft Interrupter. Now I know why a shop wanted $900 just to replace the Camshaft Interrupter.
It is recommended that I epoxy the Camshaft Interrupter to the cam gear.
Is this a good idea?
The magnet in the Camshaft Interrupter appears to be incased in plastic.
What could have caused the top of the Camshaft Interrupter to have worn away?
Should I place a drop of epoxy on the magnet to plastic also?
Will rotate engine after replacing timing gears to align Camshaft Interrupter with Cam Sensor opening in timing chain cover. There are no adjustments that I can find for the Camshaft Interrupter or Cam Sensor. Is there anything special I should look for before putting this all back together?
