Please ignore that other answer. I have reported that as spamming and it should be removed shortly. The tone ring on the crank is usually set at the factory and in most cases it involves installing a new crank shaft. That is a very intense process and involves removing the engine. Depending on the shape the rest of the vehicle and engine is in and the mileage, it might be worth considering getting a rebuilt engine installed. It would have the benefit of a warranty.

You can take it back to the dealer, and have them change the battery, or go to Autozone, buy the battery and do it yourself. They can show you how to do it. And which battery it takes. It's not hard to do. Good luck.

SOURCE: where is the PCV valve located on the 2008 Toyota

It will be connected to a hose that goes to the valve cover. The PCV sits inside the cover a little. It can be pulled out easily, but I repalce mine every 3000 miles. It sound crazy but if you can't blow through it, then it's stopped up, but it's good if you air flows through it good. this is how alot of people check them.

Change Transmition automatic disc disck

Hi, this means the crank sensor is detecting random misfires. This can be caused by a rich or lean condition or possibly a problem with the crankshaft sensor, wiring, or the tone ring that the sensor watches. If the car idles rough, it could also be caused by an EGR or purge valve that is stuck open. Please see my tip at . These are genericinstructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with engine .

Erreur p0016 on sienna 2003 after change t-belt

The crankshaft position sensor (CKP) and Camshaft position sensor (CMP) work in harmony to control the spark/fuel delivery and timing. They both consist of a reluctor, or tone, ring which passes over a magnetic sensor, which generates a voltage, indicating position.

The crankshaft sensor is part of the primary ignition system and functions as the "trigger". It detects the position of the crankshaft relays that information on to the PCM or the ignition module (depending on the vehicle) to control spark timing. The Camshaft position sensor detects the position of the camshafts and relays the information to the PCM. The PCM uses the CMP signal to identify the beginning of the injector sequence. What ties these two shafts and their sensors together is the timing belt or chain. The cam and crank should be precisely timed together. If the PCM detects that the Crank and Cam signals are out of time by a specific number of degrees, this P0016 code will set.

Symptoms of a P0016 will or may include:
* Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination
* The engine may run but with reduced performance
* The engine may crank but not start
* The engine may exhibit a rattle near the harmonic balancer indicating the tone ring is damaged
* The engine may start and run, but poorly

Causes may include:
* Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
* Misalignment of timing belt/chain
* Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
* Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
* Bad crank sensor
* Bad cam sensor
* Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
* Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged

Possible Solutions:
1. First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
2. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
3. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck.

Other crank sensor codes include P0017, P0018, P0019, P0335, P0336, P0337, P0338, P0339, P0385, P0386, P0387, P0388, and P0389.

Hope helps.

I have a 2007 Toyota Tacoma that wouldnt start. I turned the key but it only clicked once so my first thought was that the starter was bad. I didnt want to go straight to the starter without rolling out battery so I gave it a jump for more nearly 15 minutes and everything was lighting up and gave no indication the battery was even at all bad. However it still only clicked once and nothing else no turn over of the ignition or clicking from the spark plugs. I then tested the tapped the starter with a hammer and the first time it didnt start but the second time I tapped it I was able to start it. So from what I know that should indicate that the starter is bad which is why I removed it and had it tested. It past 5 times which I know is excessive but was just making sure. I then returned the starter to its position and wire brushed the grounds and the battery posts to make sure there was an unimpeded and very good connection. I turned the key and it seemed as if it would start but was unable to get full start or idle. I tried again and pumped the throttle which helped it start but the idle was around 400 and 500 rpms where as usually it idles at around 900 to 1200 rpms. So I got it read at autozone and the computer said it's the mass air flow sensor however they told me it could be something else that they have seen that message before and people say its something else that they had to deal with. Has anyone else had issues with this and can you help me fix this please?
