Re: Cam angle sensor
Yeah, the plug is the same as the coil pack so Im guessing 4 pins (not sure though). I am not sure which pins do what so I dont know where to start testing. I guess it should have a pulse output as the engine spins, so I guess finding voltage, ground, and then pulse would be a start. I assume the pickup is a hall effect sensor so checking its resistance like useless says will have to be done as well. Then I guess I have to check that it is pulsing at the right time, which might be tricky.
The funny thing is that if I unplug the sensor it still runs the same? I dont understand how this can happen because the ECU wont know if the engine is on compression stroke or not. All I can assume is that it takes a good guess all the time, or it fires the injectors and spark plugs on both compression and exhaust strokes.
Hopefully when I get this sorted I can find out how much potential this engine has got.
