It won't start unless we disconnect the connector to the cam sensor. We replaced the cam / crankshaft sensor & the connector to the cam sensors
Car had problems starting. Computer said EGR codes. Replaced EGR. Same problem not starting. Replaced battery, alternator, fuse box, still not starting sometimes and even wants to shut down while driving. A/C has inconsistent blowing habits (maybe a short? Maybe a bad ground?)
Any help would be nice. It's costing me a fortune and the mechanic is almost done with me.
