Ya that's what I used was the copper sealant stuff. Check engine light came on almost immediately leaving friend's house. It was off for a good 10 miles after filling up on gas... Then came on as I left the house. Turned it off at the stop sign, turned it back on and it came out of limp mode... MIL ...

So I just wanted to add this comment real quick. Was low on gas and on my way to a friend's house and had to fill up on gas... MIL went off... Wtf?...

And I re used the cam sensor... I just put sealant around the gasket. It shouldn't be bad, since I got it just last year.

Hmm that's good to know. I did notice my camshaft sensor was leaking oil all over. What sensor is right below the camshaft sensor?

Ya... I don't update my profile as much as I used to. And I've swapped clusters two times so I honestly have no idea what my real mileage is :lol: but if I had to guess, it's around ~110k

FML. So, if I understand this right... If I didn't get timing correct, the car would not be running. And it can run with it being a tooth or two off. I made damn sure I didn't rotate the crankshaft or the cam while working on it all. If it is a tooth or two off mark, would it cause the crankshaft po...

My Gates OEM belt isn't noisy at all. And I made it to ~110k before doing the belt... in fact, I just did it on Tuesday (see my thread right below/above this one).

The timing belt? Yes, I did two full rotations... But to be honest I'm not sure if I checked timing correctly. And I'm just gonna go ahead and throw this out there because I'm probably an effin idiot. But are there "TDC" marks on the crankshaft? I, for whatever reason, thought there were only TDC ma...

And won't cause damage? I'm wondering if I did anything wrong with the timing belt change to have caused the crankshaft positioning sensor to trip the MIL :banghead:

Car went into limp mode last night on the way home from our Christmas banquet... throwing a P0335 code, which I know is the crankshaft positioning sensor.

Hmm I can't remember. I'll do that sometime today. Also, part of what's happening when the motor "sputters", is that the RPM drops a good 1k then picks right back up... It's the weirdest thing. If it ain't one thing I gotta fix, it's something completely else :banghead:

I can double check if I bumped it or something. The crank and camshaft positioning sensors were changed last year summer.

Hmm... That could be a potential possibility. Plugs were changed last year summer and then again a couple months ago. And I have not changed the wires since I got it in '07 with 12k miles.

Thank you.

Another symptom I'm noticing, if anyone can chime in, is when I'm driving and I get around 3.5k-4k RPMs... It wants to sputter and choke before I shift to the next gear... What could be causing this?

On my way home from work, I'm sitting at the light fixing to get onto the interstate and my car just... Dies. "Weird", I crank it back up... Struggles to stay running, then dies again. "WTF", light's about to turn green and I go to crank the car again... And it's acting like it doesn't want to turn ...

Alright, so I've done a good bit of researching on this... so hopefully my questions haven't already been answered, but rather opinions...

Ya everything seems normal, and it's not reading the RPM at +2k... Like right now the car is off, and the needle is chilling at 2000 lol. If its just a cluster issue, I'll be fine I suppose till I get a new one.

Timing belt must take precedence lol.

Really weird, and it started last night, but the RPM needle is stuck at 2k and won't drop... I came to a stop and noticed it and thought I had some sort of vac leak, but it was just stuck... Did the whole test with the needles, and it works fine except it just doesn't go below 2k lol. Anyone have th...

I've only done seafoam once, last year, and haven't seen any negative side effects. Can't remember if I noticed any positive gains. It did smoke. A lot lol. I'll see if I can find the link.
