First code 41, next 19
A little background info first.....
Around a 1 - 2 months ago I tried to start the car at work on my lunch and it didn't want to start on the first attempt. I thought this was kind of weird but didn't worry to much about it cause it started on the second attempt. The check engine light was on but I disregarded it cause I thought it was my usual 2 codes, 21 & 58
About a week later I hooked up the scan tool and found out that it was code 41.
Yesterday I was out for a little drive and stopped for something to eat. When I came back to start the car a few minutes later it didn't want to start.
It would crank but didn't want to catch, so I held my foot on the throttle to help it along.
I got it started and made it home. I read the codes and found 41 & 19.
After doing some reading on Mitchell and printouts I started testing.
I pulled the sensor and looked in the hole for the magnet, I don't exactly know what a good one is supposed to look like, but it looked like it was still intact. It had some funny residue on it that I couldn't wipe off with a rag almost like burnt plastic.
On the back of the sensor it had slight scratches on the plastic but nothing to deep.
I don't know what a good magnet is supposed to look like.
Does anyone have any pics of a good one vs. a broken ?
From my reading, I know that code 41 is a Cam sensor error and I know that 19/18 is a Crank sensor error. I'm also aware the the 2 sensors are linked together on the same circuit.
What are the chances that the bad Cam sensor is causing the Crank sensor error OR do I have 2 different problems ?
While I was testing I found something that was odd to me.
I was testing the Cam sensor signal wire at the PCM (plug B pin A12 Black wire) with the Key on Engine off and the voltage was only something like 2.5v but when I test the wire at the Ignition coil it shows 5 volts.
Any ideas about the different voltages on the same wire ? According to my diagram it goes from the coil pack the the PCM ?
Any help or suggestions would be great,
Thanks in Advance,
