Cracked reluctors and missing reluctors can also lead to an altered waveform pattern. The work order the service department gave me did not provide me with many details. The only strainer screen I found is for drain-back into the oil gallery and is clear. Removing the timing cover and checking that the timing marks line up is one of the first things to do. I called my local Ford Service and he looked it up. The business where I aquired the vehicle, U.
Oh and I deleted my avatar awhile back and for the life of me cannot get another uploaded. Hear from other customers via the 577 reviews on parts for your Ford Explorer. Power can be provided by either battery or regulated voltage supplies, enabling even more controller flexibility. He said I was lucky in that I could be stranded, and worse it could damage the catalytic converters. Our product specialists work with a network of global sourcing partners so you can install the right part with confidence.
Check you have enough oil and have an oil pressure test done. How safe is it to still drive the car with code P0016? They warn not to replace the generator alternator unless if fails the frequency test. The engine camshaft rotation is synchronised with the crankshaft. A Hall Effect crankshaft sensor Courtesy: nwmobilemechanicdotcom Inside the engine, the crankshaft and camshaft are held together by a timing belt or timing chain, which keeps them synchronized. The timing relationship synchronization of the two sensors will be distorted if a timing belt jumps time, a cam gear slips, a timing chain gets loose or a cam phaser misbehaves. Stretched chain, phasers wacked, or what? Seriously though, I am starting to get annoyed.
Oh yeah i also did a camshaft relearn with a tech 2 and im still having the same problem of dies when deceleration and crank no start. I have been running it this way for about 8 months now with no issues. Also, it's worth to check the ground cable connection as this also can cause electrical problems. The proper camshaft timing must be verified; if a timing belt or chain jumped a tooth, it can cause this code. Moreover, depending on the application and the nature of the problem, some types of engines interference type engines with timing belts can suffer serious, if not always fatal damage should the timing belt break or slip. Start by consulting the wiring diagram for your vehicle to determine which pin on the connector is signal and which is ground. The sensors are located on the camshafts.
It was about the coldest night of the winter. Code P0016 may be accompanied by several different symptoms. Vehicle may also exhibit rough idle or misses. If there is no change in the reading, the sensor is bad and should be replaced. I see that this is a problem with the Flex and am wondering if anyone has heard of a recall or safety bulletin? The oil could have been compromised — old, cold and slow. I am assuming it is not a timing chain issue otherwise the issue would exist at all oil temperatures not just cold. You may need to rotate the engine crank to move the phasers in position.
Car is running fine no missing or problem with acceleration. They each have 4 wires but the internet only references 2 or 3 wire configurations. My car was fixed after 5 days in the shop. How serious is code P0016? What are the common causes of code P0016? P0340 Ford Description The Camshaft Position Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. Did they mention if there was an upgrade, or if something changed, or if the same parts go back in leaving the issue truly unresolved? The test can be completed with a digital storage oscilloscope. I would first check that you have the correct oil level and that the last oil change was done using the correct oil viscosity. I checked, and got this error code P0016.
I have changed and flushed the oil but still have this problem. So i did some more research and replace oil with synthetic oil new filter. I put shop towels covering the intake however. Meaning a crank to cam sensor correlation problem. Next, crank the engine and watch the ohmmeter — the reading should fluctuate. So now I sit here Flexless again until maybe Monday? Bought another 2000 Sport God help me , 4. Webmaster edit: see also for general information on that code! Drove it for a week and it went into limp mode with the p0016 code for can sensor crank sensor.
Cams aligned as prescribed in the manual. Consult the manufactures repair information for the resistance specifications. Two capscrews install the sensor, and it self-aligns. Jonathan- Depending on the vehicle, timing can be off a bit before it starts to affect drivability. Take it out and bench test it and see if the valve moves forward and back. What are common solutions to code P0016? Owner replaced crank position sensor and car runs now.
