Just a quick intro with the car. I bought it in January 2012, put a little over 2k miles on it, before I was told the transmission was cracked. I parked the car and decided to pull the motor and trans, change the timing belt, gaskets and whatnot, while it was out. Nothing was wrong with the trans, just bad axle seals.
After getting the motor and trans back in the car, I began to have issues. One being the car wasnt even cranking over, and the gear indicator on the dash was all lit up. Replaced the Neutral Safety Switch, and it fixed that. The car still wasnt starting, just cranking. I was also getting codes for the 4 cams....
17800 - Camshaft Position Sensor Bank 2 (G163): Open Short to Plus
P1392 - 001 - Upper Limit Exceeded
16725 - Camshaft Position Sensor (G40): Implausible Signal
P0341 - 004 - No Signal/Communication
16775 - Camshaft Position Sensor (G301): Implausible Signal
P0391 - 004 - No Signal/Communication
16750 - Camshaft Position Sensor B Bank 1 (G300): Implausible Signal
P0366 - 004 - No Signal/Communication
I figured out what caused the open short to plus code. The pins on that cam sensor and gotten bent, when I tried plugging it in. Fixed the pins and that code went away, and changed to the Implausible Signal like the other 3. I redone the timing 4 other times after that, getting the same codes. This last time I done the timing, I locked the crank shaft with the pin, cylinder 3 at top dead center, locked the cam gears in place, and proceeded with the rest.
Once I was done, I rotated the crank probably 30 times, making sure everything lined back up, which they did, at every other rotation of the crank. I did notice if the cams were 180* out, the cam lock tools wouldnt actually slide in to place, almost as if the cams tapered different on the opposite sides. Ran a compression test, just crossing my fingers that none of the valves had gotten bent, in my several attempts of trying to start the car. I got the following numbers from the compression test.
Cylinder 1 140, 2 140, 3 170, 4 150, 5 145, 6 145
I tried starting the car once again after all of this, and still not starting. Forgot to mention I am getting spark and fuel. I was suggested by an Audizine user to clear the fault codes 3x in a row within 30sec to reset the ecu.
