    Default Testing Camshaft sensor V6

    Hi Folks

    Anyone know how to test a camshaft sensor from a V6 petrol? Obviously this is off the car due to a code31 (Omega 2.5 V6). Crank sensor was replaced 16K miles ago so suspecting camshaft sensor this time.

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers
    Mark

    if the crank sensor wasn't OEM VX then it could well be duff again..there are some dodgy pattern copies about....

    you need the camshaft sensor on the car and an ocsilliscope to check for a switching waveform..or just stump up for an OEM replacement....

    Thanks Mark - the new crank sensor was a Vauxhall part (Bosch) and the camshaft sensor is also. Dealer doesn't have one in stock but hopefully will have one at the weekend. Was hoping there might be an easy test.
    Thanks for your help though
    Cheers
