Well it makes sense why your car would stall with that sensor being bad. The Crank angle sensor works in conjunction with the camshaft sensor to monitor the relationship between the valves and the pistons in the engine. If the sensor is bad or not working properly the relationship cannot be monitored thus the engine stalling out, I'm going to take a picture of where im pretty sure it is at but for the time being until i upload it. Underneath the hood on the drivers side, right below the coolant hoses you will see a round circle that is metal looking and theres a plug coming out of this. I'll double check to be sure

Maybe after cleaning the contacts and applying some dielectric grease?

Not too much going on inside the CAS; simply an optical sensor, a VERY thin metal laser cut wheel that's connected and spins with the camshaft, plus two sealed bearings on the shaft that can go dry, but shouldn't affect performance. Very tough to pull apart (not recommended) without bending the wheel that sits in the middle the sensor opening.

Over $300 new and electrical connectors to the J30 and 300ZX CASs are different/NOT interchangeable, even though the basic part is the same.

so i went to the salvage yard...pulled one off a 95(for 60 bux) and it runs again...only catch is that im still showing code 11 even after i reset the computer....but im not stalling anymore which is weird....any ideas?

Hopefully it's simply a matter of an unerased stored code, and not an issue with the wiring between the CAS and the ECM. Try erasing again?

If there are some instructions and specs in the FSM, test the old CAS? Maybe it isn't bad.

Temp sensor plug
