could the sensor be the cause of new lifters still making noise and if so how can you tell if it is bad?
“could the sensor be the cause of new lifters still making noise”
Maybe it’s not the lifters making the noise. Is the oil pressure OK?
And how about make, model, year of the vehicle?
Edit: OK, I see the make and model in the tags, but really they should be in the title or body of the post.
I don;t care for this new format either. I think they were trying to respond to our constant requests for this info, and I appreciate the attempt, but there must be a better way.
Year, milleage, and some history (new lifters?) would be a big help.
The simple answer is no. If the cam position sensor were bad the engine would not run. It tells the ECU where the cam position is for he purposes of timing the ignition and injector pulses.
