Does anyone know the break point for when GM started using the new CKP supplier? I know the problem exists for 2000 - early '03's. Just wondering if a failure is in my future. My build date it 5/20/03.

Last summer AJ did a blurb in here concerning date codes and color changes for the CKP problem.

If we could get him or ewill3 to decipher the date codes on the new Japanese units that might be a clue.

Me neither ....So, is there an easy way what engine we have ? More specifically, if our engines will suffer from this failure in the future ?
For ex: Jaguar also suffered Nikasil issue when they first build their V8 engines however you can still learn if your V8 engine will be in hot water or affected by that or not thru your VIN .

If it is a 2000 - early '03 and has the original CKP sensors, the only question in my mind is when will they fail.

The new supplier of crank sensors started supplying production at the start of the 04-model year as well as supplying SPO with service parts in September. .
Guess that answers my question.

I'll have to have the SA check the history when I bring it in on Monday to straighten out their F'up from the last trip.

PM me your last 8 of the VIN and I will check.
