Diagnosing CPS/CMP problems...

I have been busy reading over many posts, and most of them that I come across seem to be Camshaft Position Sensor problems, so I thought that I would share some of my knowledge and experience in diagnosing them. I would like to hear what other members have to say as well...

What it does:
- Injection pressure and timing; fuel quantity and backpressure
- Signal for tachometer..

Symptoms (if it ISN'T a no start):
Basically the most common one is stalling/restarting with or without the check engine light coming on and conditions really dont seem to matter (quote me loosely on that one)

If I have a no start and no scanner available and I believe it is the CPS or just to eliminate the possibility of a bad CPS causing the no start, when your cranking over the truck you should see the tachometer bounce because as I said earlier the CPS sends a signal to the tachometer (a buffered signal if you want to get technical) if no bouncy tach then no signal...

Check engine light:
Codes usually are P0340, P0341 or P0344
If your lucky and get a check engine light...

Anyways hopefully this will help users to diagnose their faulty CPS, i'm not saying don't post CPS questions, i need things to do at night when I come home from work...just saying this may shed some light on their problem/question...

And if someone has made a post like this I appologize, I should have searched first....

-You can think I'm wrong, but that's no reason to quit thinking-
