When a Crankshaft – Camshaft Position Sensor goes BAD, your vehicle will not start. Distributorless ignition systems (DIS) require a crankshaft position sensor (CKP), and sometimes also a camshaft position sensor (CMP). Crankshaft – Camshaft […]
Crankshaft-Camshaft Position Sensors produce a signal that talks the Fuel Injection Computer or the Ignition Control Module. Consequently, Providing the exact position of the pistons as they come up or go down in the compression […]
Doing the cylinder leak down test; especially in conjunction with a compression test; should allow you to quickly determine the basic condition of any engine. A compression test is a dynamic test (engine moving), a […]
A Vacuum leak can trick you, and your car computer, into believing a particular sensor or system needs fixing. Then you start replacing components hoping you’ll fix the problem, unsuccessfully. Often, a vacuum leak makes […]
What is engine misfiring and what are the main causes. If you think you are having engine misfiring; it’s best to find the problem and fix it as soon as possible. Consequently, Engine misfiring reduces […]
