Resolved Question:

Hi i'm having problems with my Nissan 04 micra k12 model. I'm losing power while i'm driving and the engine light is showing . I recently had the cam sensor replaced and the car ran fine for a while . Now I'm having the same problems again so the mechanic chained the timing belt I just got the car back from the garage today and after putting petrol into the car I couldn't start the car straight away the engine light came back on once I got the car going . Help this is driving me crazy .

Jake :

are you still getting the cam sensor code?

Customer:

yes its coming up

Jake :

Did your mechanic use a nisan or aftermarket sensor

Customer:

i'm not sure I think it was a market sensor

Jake :

This is what concerns me

Jake :

I see alot where the aftermarket sensors DO NOT work right

Jake :

causing the same problems even after the sensor was replaced.

Jake :

I am thinking the timing belt was unneccesary and it just needed a quality nissan sensor

Jake :

Chances are if you scoped the cam signal during hard starts the wave pattern would be inconsistant indicating the sensor at fault

Jake :

It would probably even show while running

Jake :

My advice would be to tst for conitnuity from the cam sensor wires to the ECM.

Jake :

if all checks out OK

Jake :

then put a GENUINE NISSAN SENSOR in

Jake :

and I bet all your problems go away.

Customer:

Thanks for the advice ill give it ago . see what happens mechanic is on the way

Jake :

your welcome

Jake :

f you need anything else let me know

Jake :

if not, please leave a kind rating.

Jake :

thanks
