Hey there! Here we go. I have a 2002 Winnebago Brave. Vortec 8100. I usually get parts by saying I have a Silverado 8.1.
For the past month. Randomly won't start. And also can stall at any speed. As it has gotten worse, they happen at the same time. Stalls on the highway, then no crank. I've had to jump the solenoid with a screwdriver. And once it decides to not start, that's the only way to start it. No cranking at all. Still have dash lights and headlights. No power to the S-Pole on starter. Before I knew that, I replaced the starter and the park/neutral switch. Battery tested good and no corrosion. Switched out starter relay under hood. No effect. Used a test light at steering column. There is a wire to the ignition switch (yellow?) that goes hot when you turn the key to start. Same thing with the leads to the relay. One of the posts goes hot with key turned to start. But no power to S-pole.
Just got back from a long trip and it stalled and I had to jump solenoid 6 times in last 40 miles to home. Check engine light is now on. Just read codes. Throwing 2 - P0335 & P0336. I just watched your video on replacing crankshaft position sensor - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKo7xRWVNqY - Looks easy enough. But when I look up my part on line, I keep coming up with this animal: http://www.1aauto.com/1A/crankshaft-position-sensor/Chevy/Silverado3500/1AECS00055/767098/2002 - I guess I'm asking a couple things here:
1. Could a crankshaft position sensor cause the random stalling and subsequent not starting?
2. With this sensor with this long shaft looking different than your video, is the part located in the same place? Behind the starter?
Thanks for your help! I'm getting desperate. My family and I are gospel singers, and we need to leave for a trip in a couple weeks! AHHHHH!!!!!!!
have the same problem?
