Question Crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensor, P0016 code

(2008 HHR) I was given the code P0016 and it said crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensor. First I don't know where either are locate. Also is either sensor the problem or the chain belt like someone told me. I like your thoughts on that and help me locate both sensors. (I hope my topic is in the right place).

Hi Slick, to the forums!!

P0016 is extremely likely the timing chain.

I don't know what to do because the car won't start nor run and am wondering since I brought crankshaft sensor and may buy camshaft sensor should I put it on or get it towed. Thanks for the input.

If you can't replace the timing set yourself, then you will have to tow it to a competent shop. If you want to verify that it is the timing set, you can pull the valve cover and see if there is slop in the chain.

It is not a problem with the sensors, it is a problem with what they are sensing. The camshaft and crankshaft are not in sync.

I would look at it tomorrow morning, if you don't mind I'll keep you posted because I'm new at this. Once again thanks.

RJ has you going in the right direction, which engine you have? The chain kits are different .
P0016 indicates the timing chain is off a tooth or two , do not try to start it again.

My car won't start at all. 2.2 is my engine. I really don't know nothing about cars. The simple things I can do by watching YouTube channels. This morning I tried to look into the tooth's, by taking off the valve cover off and that's allot for me, (like RJ_RS_SS_350 suggested) but there's allot to take off and it's beyond my pay grade. Even the camshaft sensor is all the way in the bottom under the oil filter I believe and like I said it's beyond. I must do something because the money to do all this is too much. I wish I had a trust worthy machinic (misspell).. I KNOW I HAVE TO START LEARNING.
