hate to break it to you, but there is NO crankshaft sensor on the VE motor. None is shown in the FSM. I just checked.yes there is movable one in 3rd gen maxima SE's ( VE engine ) not in gxe's VG...thannks for the info tho..
just to clarify, on the 92-94 SE there is no distributor.yeah, it's the same.
even the FSM sometimes goes back n forth on the name.
as long as you mechanically timed your chain right... either way it's called, it's running off the same timing gear. (on my s13 it runs off the idle sprocket where the two timing chains between the cam and crank meet).
sorry, been a long-winded night... what i'm gettin at is, that as long as you mechanically time the crank and cams right.. whatever timing you put on the CPS (the distributor), it'll be the same both ways.
though i don't know if you're talking about the distributor's timing gear timing... or the distributor cap's timing...
the gear is always TDC along with the timing chain for the cam and crank...
the cap is adjustable... where he says 17*... that's the timing the car says is optimal.. but i've sat there and played with one until it sounded optimal and left it... ran perfect...
only way to really get it spot on is to use a timing light. some guy told me once that if you play with it, you have to take it to the dealer... [email protected]#... i just listened to the motor as i played with the cap and then left it.
COP ignition. the cam sensor though can be adjusted like a distributor.no kiddin?
coilpack? or what?
aint' that a B.
nothin like bein able to quickly tune your spark timing.
the CPS does the timing sensing. it feeds the info to the ECU and the ECU fires each coil base on that.it's not mechanically timed? where does the mechanical sensoring come from? the TPS? or just another sensor gauging the crank/cam angle?
