After reading the haynes manuel over and over we leaned towards the camshaft sensor as the likely problem. So we just replaced it since its fairly cheap and easy to do. While the sensor was off, we looked through the hole while we turned the crank, for the magnet on the camshaft but I don't think I saw it. Not sure what it was really supposed to look like? And anyway, if that was missing wouldn't it cause a consistant problem?
I can't tell you if it has worked or not becuase we are in the middle of replacing the master cylinder, which we keep getting one with a leaky piston
and having to keep returning them.
What about the torque converter problem? Anyone know what could be causing the code and lack of lockup ocasionally? I have monitered the lockup with my scanner. It will operate normally most of the time. When it does start acting up it will either just not lock when its supposed to, or it will be locked and just randomly unlock according to the scanner and obviuosly the feel of it kicking out and the rpm jump. Also it doesn't always set a code. (P0740 )
And about the cruise control. It does not work and hasn't for years. So we never attempt to set it. So why do we always get a code for it (P1567) if we haven't touched it?
