VIDEO: How Misfire Codes Get Set

Andrew Markel discusses misfire codes, and how the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors detect rotational anomalies to set them. Sponsored by Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper.

Crankshaft And Camshaft Signals

The key to diagnosing many cranking, no-start and stalling problems found on the late-model import is to understand how the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors function and what their mechanical relationship is to each other.

Demystifying Scopes: Engine Camshaft And Crankshaft Waveforms

Having to remove valve or front cover of an engine to check engine timing marks can rarely be completed in under an hour on most modern engines. But, capturing the waveforms from the camshaft and crankshaft sensors can be completed in under 30 minutes. This diagnostic approach can also diagnose circuit and sensor problems.

Ensure Camshaft Alignment With Lisle Corp. Timing Tool

The tool helps ensure camshaft alignment during removal and installation of the timing chain.

Timing Chains In Hyundai Engines

Although Hyundai uses a single timing belt on its 2.7L V6 engines, its 3.3L, double-overhead camshaft engine is equipped with one timing chain for each camshaft and one drive chain for the oil pump. At first glance, a timing chain design allows engineers to shorten the overall length of the engine and reduce rotating friction.

Misfires In The Crankshaft And Camshaft

Any time you’re dealing with a combustion engine, there’s a chance it will develop a misfire. A better understanding of how computer systems analyze a misfire can make your job that much easier as the service tech.

Cam Alignment During Timing Belt Installation

The most common cause found with immediate illumination of the MIL associated to cam sensor codes has been misalignment between the rear cam gear and timing belt. Illumination of the MIL will occur with the cam being one tooth advanced or retarded.
