Okay, so my car (2000 Sentra GXE 1.8 liter) started acting silly a couple weeks ago. Through a call to the dealership with my VIN and the help of this forum I suspect the CKP is bad. I call several auto part stores and am told that their is no such part, except for Advance Auto who has the part for $23.00. I ordered it and when it came in it said "Cam Position Sensor". I figure, cant hurt to change that and I will just get the right part from the dealership. I change the cam sensor this morning and go to the dealership where I am told that they are the same sensor, so I buy the one from the dealership for $10 more than I paid at Advance because I dont have time to wait for it to come in. If I am not mistaking the CKP is right where the transmission and the engine meet? I am having trouble getting the sensor out of there, any tips? The sensor that is on there and the one the dealership gave me look different, I will try to take the sensor out and if the new one dont work bring it to the dealership and let them match it. I also noticed a couple melted wires behind the airbox on the fender. I will have to wait till tommorrow to take the box off and investigate the damage as it started raining on me. Anyone know what wiring harness runs behind there so I can start tracking on down? I will also appreciate ANY tips on getting that damn sensor out as well. Thanks.
