Have the vehicle listed above 4g93, it cranks but won't start. Changed all the fuel supply parts but still nothing.
Today I removed the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors and discovered that the camshaft sensor must have been rubbing against the camshaft, the magnet is there, but there is a part that seems rubbed off against something.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

Have you checked to see if you are getting spark to the plugs?
When a cam sensor is damaged the ECM may not be able to determine the correct time to power the coil, which can lead to no spark. As you know no spark means the engine will not start.

Here is a helpful guide of checking the ignition system:

Please let me know what you find.
Thank you.
