something’s wrong with my car, it’s throwing code 4, and code 8, crankshaft position sensor and top-dead center sensor,
when I’ve been driving for longer than 15 minutes the CEL will come on, then within 5-10minutes of that the engine will cut out, sputter, backfire, rpm’s jump around and I have no acceleration. If i turn the key off then back on the CEL will go away for a few minutes but eventually will come back, and then withing 5-10minutes it will do the dying trick again.
this only happens when it’s warm, when the engine is heat soaked, like after at least 20minutes of driving.
i’ve searched these codes, it’s obviously a problem with my distributor, but I just had a new complete distributor installed less than a year ago, is there anyways I can check/replace these sensors?
TDC and Crankshaft sensors, can I check em and replace them??
i’ve got a code 4 in my engine too but my car run fine for now. Someone told me (it is an hypotesis) that maybe there are metal sensor at the end of the crank that knows when the crank is a little sideway (bearings heavy wear) and it then tells you “hey, im goin bad you know, take car of me”. taking out the crankshaft is a damn hard job… ill try to get more info from the dealer before… :mad:
