Recently my dad's Chrysler Town and Country Van would not shift into 3rd or 4th, and when we put the scanner on it, Codes P0700 & P1767 came up. After GOOGLING these codes, I found out that when both of these codes come up together I needed to replace the TRANSMISSION CONTROL SOLENOID. Problem solved!!!
Question Answered: where is the camshaft sensor at on the engine? is it hard to change ?

I had to change my CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR and I had a repair manual to go by. It wasn't that hard to replace. Had to take the TIMING BELT COVER OFF and it's to the right side of the belt. The book should indicate the location of the SENSOR.

Not sure why it's not turning over but if the car sounds like a "diesel bus ", then I suggest getting the timing chains replaced. Had mine changed at 231,000 miles. My Nissan 200sx had 2 timing chains. Good luck...
Problem Reported: Timing Chain Noise May Lead to Timing Chain Failure on Higher Mileage Vehicles
September 15, 2010, 10:07 PM
Excessive timing chain noise, a rattling or ticking, on higher mileage cars may lead to timing chain failure, which can cause engine damage. There are upgraded chain tension guides with a steel backing to improve durability and a modified repair procedure no longer requires the removal of the cylinder head to replace the timing chain. Maintaining proper engine oil level and frequent oil changes are important to ensure the long-term durability of this engine.
Car Review: 1996 Nissan 200SX

I've owned this vehicle since 1998 and she's been real good to me. Just had the timing chains replace (231,000 miles) and the mechanic says she's running real strong. Maybe the Synthectic oil I've used since 39,000 miles. Isn't the most comfortable car but it'll get you where you need to go for a lot less ($) then most cars will. I plan on keeping her around for a while, she's a great dependable vehicle.
