fordem will become famous soon enough

Unbolt, remove, replace, adjust ignition timing - this last requires a Suzuki scan tool and a timing light.

Thank you for the info.I did removed it yesterday. I have to remove the transmission dipstick part to be able to remove the sensor. Have to go under the car to remove the two bolt holding the dipstick. While under the car I saw lots of oil. It must need a new cover gasket replacement. Waiting for the part to arrive from rockauto.

There are many potential oil leak sources to contend with.

Clean and insect closely. Even the old CPS to engine seal is a possible leak source back there.

Default got the new part

Got the new part and tried to installed it but after 45 mins of trying to put it in and try to aligned it, I gave up. what am I doing wrong? the old part fit in so easy but the new part from beck/arnley part number 180-0289 just don't want to go in. I also used a mirror to see the angle and I did the right angle but still no luck.

That appears to be the correct part number...
2003 SUZUKI XL-7 2.7L V6 Camshaft Position Sensor | RockAuto

Pay close attention to how the ears of the coupler are clocked. I think that they are off-set to allow only one position match-up. You may be 180 degrees out.

You are correct. It goes one way only. A new seal makes it difficult, but it's necessary. That's where my major oil leak was. I had to remove the cover screws to line it up. Putting the screws back in is a pain.

Default new camshaft position sensor and still dies

Hello everyone! I ordered a new camshaft position sensor on my 2003 xl7 v6 from rockauto and installed it yesterday. the car will start and after 15 minutes letting it at idle is fine but once I start pressing on the gas and increase the rpm the engine starts to die slowly. I also notice like there is an air leak coming from the exhaust manifold close to the sensor. I checked it and all the bolt are tight and it was replace last year. I don't know where else to look for. it seems like it happens when the engine gets warm. my coolant level is good. anyone have idea what's is causing this? Thanks
