Hi.. I recently got this Daewoo, and I replaced a head gasket, and fixed a couple water leaks.
Next thing in line, was to do some test drives... Did some of that, and had some white smoke comin from the tailpipe for the first few days, and that pretty much cleared up. The CEL came on somewhere in there, after at least, probably 2 hours of driving. Pulled the code with a diagnostic tool, and it was the "cam sensor low input"(pretty sure it's P0342) I reset the code, and checked for some connection problems.. And it came back after another 2 hours of driving, ordered the part(cheap, but new), figured "should be the end of this story"... not really at all.
After receiving the camshaft sensor, right away I replaced it. This time.. the CEL came on IMMEDIATELY. Strange? I did some tinkering around, checking the sensors for continuity. The old one had no continuity where the new one DID have continuity. Thought that was even weirder.. So I make some adjustments to the new sensor, maybe a position problem...? To no avail. So next, I tried replacing it with the old one. Guess what, the CEL did not come on right away. Also it's acting like there is no sensor there when the new one is attached. So my first real question to you all is.. Faulty manufacturing of the cam sensor?
Next up, the O2 sensor decided to crap out on me while I was working on the car(CEL blah blah, 02 sensor no activity detected bank 1, sensor 1). GREAT! So, do you thing maybe I did something wrong with the battery disconnecting/reconnecting while doin the work? Also is "sensor 1" the sensor on the cat, or after?
That's all I have to ask for now, thanks for reading my EXTENSIVE post!
