New niche parts from Blue Print

Thursday, November 12, 2020

Blue Print continues to expand it range of hard to source, uncommon components that offer excellent value for money. It features replacement components that offer an alternative solution for dealer-perceived parts, giving customers access to specialist and niche parts in the aftermarket, keeping costs down whilst maintaining the high quality expected.

As part of its ever-growing ranges, across a variety of different product groups, Blue Print continues to research niche parts to ensure the parts professionals need are available at competitive prices.

One part identified by Blue Print as being in especially high demand at present is ADN17201, a  Camshaft / Crankshaft Sensor which fits the Nissan Almera, Almera Tino, Expert, Micra, Note, Primera, Sunny, Wingroad 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 1.8 Petrol engines.

On these models incorrect camshaft and crankshaft synchronization will often lead to symptoms of poor acceleration and erratic engine rpm. The engine control unit may also have a number of fault codes stored, for example P0011 Camshaft ‘A’ timing (Bank 1), P0335 Crankshaft position sensor and P0340 Camshaft position sensor. This can be diagnosed as a simple sensor replacement, however, Blue Print also recommends checking for a worn timing chain, which can be the underlying cause. The technician should therefore check the position and alignment of the engine timing and replace all worn components as necessary, before condemning the crankshaft or camshaft sensors.
