The guy changed a sensor, it worked for one day, then it will not start. I had a radiator leak about 2 years ago. Put some stop leak in it, but when I went to pick up my car in December, it overheated, noticed milky oil. Mechanic supposedly changed heads, still would not crank, replaced a sensor, cranked and started one day, but the next day nothing. What could it be

    He never said what sensor it was. He said he put in on, it started and then the next day nothing. The check engine light is still on.

    Ok the cam sensor needs to be replace at the same time as the crank. The computer on that one does not diferrenciate between the two. IT reads both as the same. Hope that helps for now.
