It's interesting that you mentioned a gap--was the sensor in all the way? Did it look like there was actual moisture penetration or evidence of salt residue on the sensor or in the oriface? I would think the o-ring going into the block should keep contaminants out, but keep us updated on whether or not the problem returns.Yesterday i removed the ckp, wiring looked fine, ckp looked like new, no filing on it. The one thing I did notice is that it appeared to have a gap between sensor and grommet in tranny, thus space for snow, slush, etc to enter and dampen the tip of sensor and cause the ckp to cause timing issues making engine jerk and loose power, thus the code p0725.
I did use a o ring to attempt to cover the gap. Will find out next slushy day for driving.
You can buy the stepper motor off Rockauto, eBay or even Amazon. Rockauto they are about $75, be even seen them on eBay and Amazon for about $29.00Today I reinstalled the original tranny filter. No more whining and works as it should. I did erase all the codes before driving it approximately 45 miles, no codes have returned to this point.
The Napa filter I had installed was in worse condition than I had expected as it was bent from the intake tube being pushed towards valve body from the tightening of the pan. I thought about replacing stepper motor but was unable to find one.
Do you mean the VVT solenoids? Not likely, unless you're throwing codes for them. Plus, you've been throwing all kinds of CVT codes and a fault in the VVT system wouldn't do that.Wife said that it did jerk the other day. Could be possible for the timing solenoid to cause this problem????? have not checked codes lately
