RE: Cam positon sensor location on 4.7 Durango
OOPS!!! Sorry...It's a 2000 4.7
Update: purchased a camshaft positon sensor and replaced old one. I was able to start the engine, but it ran like S_ _ t.
It would only run as long as I kept my foot on the accelerator
and the engine ran rough and was noisy.
A little futher information:
My sonwas driving the truck Saturday evening and apparently was unaware that the heater core started to leak.Coolant quickly leaked out and engine overheated and he .....kept driving.
When he called me to say he had broken down,I went with a few tools and 5 gallons of water.I expected to find a broken top or bottom radiator hose or heater hose.
When I figured out that the heater core was leaking,I filler the radiator with water and was going to try to limp it back home and deal with the heater core there. But the truck wouldn't start so it was towed.
So like I was saying,my first job was to get it started then determine if there was any more damage..which obviously now there is.
I checked the oil dip stick and it shows full and there doesn't appear to be any coolant present.He says the oil was just changed so it looked clean and not overfull.
From the description of the engine not running smooth or stalling out when accelerator is released my guess is blown head gasket...anybody else care to make an educated guess?
I would appreciate a yea or nay on my guess.
