2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Q&A

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: should there be oil on the camshaft sensor when you take it out?

I got a code that my camshaft sensor set off. I tried replacing it and when I pulled the old one out there was oil on it. I put the new one in and the engine light stayed on and truck still didn't start right. I pulled the new sensor out and there was oil on it also -
Answer 1
yes there should be oil on the end of sensor, you may have a circuit issue -

Thank you. Do you have any suggestions on how to go about fixing that. Somebody told me that it may be my crankshaft sensor. They said the 2 work together?? -
