    • Scanned modules for codes – received P0340 (camshaft position sensor "A" circuit). We ran the vehicle and graphed the camshaft sensor – is reading properly. Accessed the sensor inside the distributor (which appears newer). Sensor is secured properly and wiring is complete. We tested the wiring from the sensor to the ECU – is complete. Cleared the code and test drove the vehicle without incident. During testing the battery went dead – we fully charged the battery and tested it. Battery tests bad with 414 cold cranking amps, is rated at 550 – ok'd to replace. We cannot find a fault with the camshaft position sensor at this time but it is integral to the distributor, if issue reoccurs the distributor will have to be replaced. .
    • Installed new battery. Cleaned and sealed connections. .
    • Left license plate light was out – we replaced the bult. Lights are operating properly now but both tail light lenses are broken. New battery tests good with 612 cold cranking amps, is rated at 550. Air filter, belts, and hoses look good. Fluid levels full. Tires have 11/32 tread remaining, 35psi. Front differential pinion seal is leaking. Front brake pads are not wearing evenly – calipers are not releasing properly. Shock absorbers are rusty and leaking. Driveline, steering, and exhaust appear intact. .
    • Installed new front differential pinion seal. Refilled differential with fresh gear lube. .
    • Installed new tail lamp assemblies. .
    • Installed new shock absorbers. .
