First, I hope everyone that drives a GM, your cars run like they just left the assembly line. Mine is in a comma. It all started with code p0016, a loud (tick-tick-tick or clunk-clunk-clunk noise) and now it stalled on me. It is a 3.5L, K, flex fuel, v6, with 138,000 miles. 2 years ago when the car had 102,000 it threw code p0011 and one mechanic replaced the camshaft position sensor, camshaft actuator, and camshaft actuator magnet (the round piece of plastic with three screws and a connector). Replaced also the timing chain tensioner, but he kept the timing chain and crank sprocket. Is the new problem related to the old problem? Do I need a new camshaft or crankshaft? Or do I need a new timing set (camshaft actuator, camshaft actuator magnet, chain, sprocket, tensioner) and I am good? Please be as detailed as possible?

thanks,
Andre

So, does your car start and run?

Terry-- My car does not run at the moment. The engine sounds like it won't crank or turn over.

If the engine will not start and you have timing sensor codes, it sounds like the timing chain or tensioner has broke. A ticking noise then a clunk is never good and is for sure not a sensor problem. Your car has a mechanical problem. You would need to check the engine timing to see if something jumped or broke. An experienced mechanic would be able to tell if the engine is out of time by listening to it as it is cranking and not starting.
