Default Re: DIY: exhaust camshaft position sensor.

My car has been throwing codes P0013 Exhaust Camshaft position actuator circuit and
P0014 Exhaust Camshaft position timing over advanced (bank 1). I'm also getting p0420 and p0430 Cat. system below threshold. The car has been terrible in colder weather and feels like it's only running on 3 cylinders, very unresponsive at very high or very low rpms.

Yesterday it decided not to start at all. I found that my clutch fan had been running with only a few blades, no idea how, but could an out of balance clutch fan running for (at least 3 months) be the culprit of all this mess? 2001 M3 112,000. Any suggestions would be great. Cant even get it started, but starter does turn over.

Default Re: DIY: exhaust camshaft position sensor.

Anyone have any insight into why the sensor was enlarged? I have been leading oil from the sensor location so I replaced the o-ring but it has continued to leak. CPV, VCG, and tensioner gasket, banjo bolt gaskets all new and not leaking. I can see and feel the oil coming or from around the sensor. So either that is the worst OEM o-ring or I need to replace the sensor as well because something isn't right.

I have the same exact leaking issue. I replaced the o-ring a week ago but am still experiencing a leak.

Take a look at my thread and let me know if this is what you're experiencing.

Have you replaced yours yet? And if so, has the leaking subsided?

Replaced the o-ring with same leaking issue. Not sure why the o-ring didn't fix it. Ended up buying a new upgraded sensor which is thicker (18.32mm vs 17.88mm). Should arrive in a week and then I'll update. For now I'll have to drive the DD.

Default Re: DIY: exhaust camshaft position sensor.

did this today. i agree taking off the plastic valve beauty cover gives more roon to work. it's really at an odd angle but if you use a mechanics mirror to view before it makes it easier to figure out. i was having a akward time getting the 5mm allen bit to find the bolt. but found starting it with an allen key to break it loose and then move to the bit and ratchet easier.

the o-ring area is the same but the first step down to the cylinder of the sensor is wider on the new version. this might make the possibility of it leaking less
the base where is mounts to the head is now square, where the old version was round.
here are the two for comparison.
