I got a code for the Cam sensor. I checked the voltage and the ohms and the sensor seems to be operating fine. I then had someone suggest that thetiming could be messed up. I took the cylinder head cover off, and noticed that there was a plastic piece of something in between the cam gear and timing chain. (This model is the DOHC with a timing belt to the crank, and a chain between both cams) I fished the plastic piece out, and I cannot figure out what it is. The car will crank sometimes, but only run for about 5-10 seconds before shutting off. I thought the plastic piece may be a guide of some sorts, but the only information on timing guides I can find if for the belt, not the chain. Any ideas?
