Post 02 Dream Cruiser

My sister-in -law has an 02 the only time it will run is with the camshaft sensor unpluged. they changed the computor and the cam sensor, with the same results. Anyone have any ideas what i should do,, i am thinking the crank sensor is bad.

Use OEM sensors NOT aftermarket.

Agree, use oem parts.

You might try a new cam magnet.

Also, any previous work done before this? I only ask because I put on a head off of a newer year on my 02 and found out when they went from sbec (02) to ngc controller (03 and newer), they changed the cam magnet and clocked it 90 degrees different on the camshaft. Mine would only run with it unplugged as well.

Thumbs down Re: 02 Dream Cruiser

The motor was changed before she bought it, the very reason that it was sold . The so called mechanic that changed it didnt get the job done.. It is an 01 or 02 engine but it is missing the EGR valve and everything that goes with it.. I found the loose wire just hanging out with nothing to hook to.

You can see the cam magnet on the left has more poles, which is for a NGC car. Since yours is an 02 (SBEC), it should look like the one on the right. Pretty rare for cam magnets just to go bad but since you've had someone else in there, it may be more likely the wrong one is in there.

Also, do you have a hole for an EGR valve? It can be drilled but would be very tricky to do so on the car.
