Wells Nissan P0507 Relearn Cam and Crank Sensor location and Testing
http://www.wellsve.com/ This video will locate and test the cam and crank sensor on a 2004 Nissan. It will also demonstrate an alternative method to relearn the idle air control. When a P0507 or a high idle occurs after a throttle body clean, the TSB requires the use of the factory (Consultant II) scan tool to reset idle air control. The reset can also be performed by following the steps in this video, without a scan tool.

2003 Nissan Altima S - Camshaft & Crankshaft Position Sensors
2003 Nissan Altima S 2.5L W/Automatic Transmission
INTERMITTENT NO-STARTS & ROUGH-STARTS WITH NO DTCs SET.
A LOCAL AUTOSHOP HAD REPLACED ONLY THE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR, MADE SURE
NO DTCs PRESENT AND OPS CHECK GOOD.
HOWEVER, THE PROBLEM RETURNED.
NOW, THE SAME AUTOSHOP BELIEVES THAT THE FAULT IS WITH THE TRANSMISSION
FLEX PLATE, WHICH MAY HAVE DAMAGED THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR AS WELL,
ACCORDING TO HIM.
ESTIMATE IS AT ~$750.
The mechanic didn't try to replace the Crankshaft sensor alone, he went
straight for the Tranny drop. I figured go with the cheap fix first. If it
comes back, then we will look into the Flex Plate.
I replaced the recently replaced Camshaft sensor & the never been replaced
Crankshaft sensor. So far, so good.
Replacing the Camshaft sensor is a 2-minute job.
The Crankshaft sensor will likely take 30 times as long.
It seems like the Old Crankshaft Position sensor I removed was a bit high
on a resistance check, when compared to brand new sensors. With too high a
resistance value, the sensor may not make use of the full voltage it is
receiving and/or it may not return the required amount of voltage to the
Powertrain Control Module (PCM), which will lead to irregular engine
operation or a no-start condition.
Both Camshaft & Crankshaft sensors are the same part number. The 3rd
version of the sensor is encased in metal, not plastic.
The OEM part number is 23731-6N21A ($44 us)
The old part numbers were encased in plastic. These part numbers should not
be used: 23731-8J005 & 23731-8J006

Nissan recalls that problem to reprogram the ECU. What happens the crank
sensor electrical terminals seep oil into the crank sensors plug. The new
metal crank sensors correct this problem. Location of this sensor on the
back of the motor is difficult to change and you need gorrilia finger grip
to depress the connector green lock and remove the sensor. Depending on
your cars Vin# Recall Campaign # R0712 NHTSA# 07V-527. Hopefully your
factory warranty replaces the sensor no charge 5yr/60,000 mile. The
campaign only covers the ECM reprogram. The ECM reprogram makes both
sensors act as one so either will allow the car to start. Stalling and not
starting is a safety risk.

For some information on related DTC faults:
2004 sentra idle relearn won't work
Did the process multiple times and didn't work.
On 2 sec
Off 10 sec
On 2 sec
Off 10 sec
Ignition on then off to make sure valve is closed.
Start car let it warm.
Turn off 10 sec.
Turn key to on for 3 sec
Press pedal 5 times in less than 5 sec.
Wait 7 sec then press in pedal and hold
When light starts flashing then goes solid let go within 3 sec
Start car after.
Any ideas why not working?
Crank Sensor Quick Fix

Crank Sensor Quick-Fix
There are two types of crank sensors, and two types of tests, the 2 and 3
wire sensors. Here are the flash points for the crank sensor testing.
1) The 2 wire crank sensor generates a voltage, and is quick tested with a
2) To test the two wire sensor, disconnect the crank sensor, ignition key
on, hook the test light to battery power, and tap at each crank sensor
terminal repeatedly. A spark click and injector pulse should be seen.
3) The 3 wire sensor has its own circuit, with 5 to 8 volt power, ground,
and signal wires. Identify the signal wire using volt meter or diagram.
4) Take the test light and connect to battery ground. With key on,
disconnect crank sensor, and repeatedly tap on the signal wire. You should
hear a spark click and injector noid pulse.
These are to test the ECM crank sensor circuit response. On both tests, you
should see a spark click and injector pulse. Crank sensor is the main input
to the ECM. If ECM working, then the crank is the only other issue. There
are other ways to test, but involve an oscilloscope and more complex. This
concludes the cranks sensor Quick-Fix.
Mode 6 misfire diagnostics on a 2002 Expedition by Wells
http://www.wellsve.com/ Pinning down which cylinder is misfiring when the
check engine light has not illuminated can be a serious challenge,
especially when the problem only occurs under a heavy load. This video
shows you how to use mode 6 as a diagnostic tool to pick out which cylinder
is misfiring on this Ford Expedition.
How to diag 02-06 Nissan SES light
**NOTE** This process can be tedious and nerve racking because it may not
work up to 20 times or more, if you're not familiar with the timing.
Nissan's time windows for each step are very narrow, so if you're not
getting it at first, perhaps you need to do it faster or slower and you'll eventually do it
This video is a tutorial on how to diagnose why your 02-06 Nissan is
displaying the SES (service engine soon) light by using your cars built in
OBD (on board diagnostic) system. I have a 2003 Nissan Altima 2.5S. It has
been confirmed to also work on an 06 Sentra SpecV, 09 Infiniti G37, 08
Patrol 4800 VTC, 03 Sentra GXE 1.8L, 11 Cube, 06 G35, as well as a 350z.

Throttle Body Cleaning - Dirty Throttle Body Symptoms and Problems
http://www.TrustMyMechanic.com (visit my site for TONS of free auto repair
Throttle body cleaning. Does your car idle rough, does the engine seem
like it is trying to die when you are at a stop light, is the engine taking
a little longer to start than normal?
You might have a dirty throttle body and that is something you can repair
yourself. In this video we are cleaning the throttle body on a 2005 Ford
F150 pick up truck with a 4.6 V8 engine.
Using just a wire brush and some throttle body cleaner made by BG, or you
can use any throttle body cleaner made for throttle body service which is
available at your local auto parts store.

"Common Throttle Body Symptoms and Problems"
What are the most common complaints I see in my auto repair shop that are
related to a dirty throttle body?
1. Rough idle speed. We like to call this hunt and peck, like a chicken
does when it is looking for food. The engine is trying to keep a steady
idle speed but the carbon build up in the throttle body plates are not
allowing it. So the engine is hunting for a steady idle speed, which causes
the roughness you feel inside the vehicle.
2. Slower starts or extended starting periods. You might have to crank the
engine over much longer than you used to. The engine might start and die,
and you have to crank it again. These are pretty common complaints when
there is a dirty throttle body issue.
3. Dies at stops. The engine is having a hard time keeping the idle speed
high enough without dying. This complaint is worse with the air conditioner
on, since there is more load on the engine with the A/C compressor on. A
dirty throttle body will cause the engine to decrease the idle speed as the
vehicle comes to a complete stop, and will eventually die. Restarting can
take some time as in the extended crank complaint above.
This is a common complaint and the throttle body as well as the idle speed
control motor should be cleaned periodically as part of regular scheduled
