I've got a problem on my OBDI Golf. My engine has come up in the past momentarily and when it does it's as if I'm loosing power; as if there is a lack of electricity going to the plugs and such.
Turns out the OBDI code was something called the 'Camshaft Position Senso/Hall Sender.'
All in all you've probably got an old and faulty Hall sender. I know I'm going to be changing my wires, distributor cap, rotor, and Hall sender in the spring so I'm not too worried. Also, my engine light and that little lack of power and stutter doesn't happen all too often so, again, I'm not too worried.
Camshaft Sensor = Hall Sender
(or something to do within the dist. cap, or to do with the rotor or what not) I believe it's just another name for it.
Check this page out from 'Dan' (who is a genius by the way);
This page talks about fuses, relays, and sensors. There will be a list of pictures with different sensors in each picture. About a third of the way down the page you'll see a picture that has the distributor cap and hall sender plug and wires in it. Just bellow that it says ' "Cam Sensor" .'
This, the code I got from my car, and some snooping around really leads me to believe that the Hall Sendor is what's wrong with my car and which would lead me to believe you've also got the same problem.
