Sir Loin says:

This is the v6 I was hoping it was the awd v8 that’s what I have. So far it’s needed a new steering rack and intake manifold gaskets, I also need to replace my valve cover gaskets.

Can the camshaft actuator affect how the engine runs because I took my STS to the dealer and was never the same it never ran like again as the engine would struggle to stay on as if there was no fuel.

Edwin Aviles says:

Hey guys, I’m having a misfire on cylinder 1. I have replaced ignition coil, fuel injector, and spark plug. Still misfires. I then noticed a broken connector on one of the camshaft sensors. Do you think that could be cause the misfire?
