    Code P0340...My POS 2000 Nissan Frontier has had the same problem... twice. The last time I replaced the plugs and wires and it fixed it. This time it looks like the Camshaft Position Sensor is bad. BUT, I cannot find one for my year model. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to replace the distributor itself because you can't JUST replace the sensor on any 98-02 model. This is what I'm assuming since I took the top assembly off of the distributor and noticed that it is almost impossible to get the damn sensor off without destroying something else.



    The first time it happened was right after I washed it. Now it's happening again... right after driving in the rain on Saturday. I've replaced the distributor cap, rotor, plugs and wires this time and I'm still getting the code and I can't drive it for more than 5-10 minutes before stalling out (usually at a red light or somewhere else really inconvenient) and not restarting.

Rough idle. 70000 miles cleaned throttle body charge batter run good for short time then rough idle again


it has to have a code stored for the check engine to light up!

try a different obd2 scanner and plug it in

local autozone, advance auto parts, or aamco transmission shops do this for free

good luck!

Why does my engine stall when idling bf falcon only does it some times ?


Fuel Injectors
Use an ohm meter to check your fuel injectors (with the engine running), by removing the wire from the injector. Two metal prongs sit inside the connector. Set the meter for the ohm setting. Touch the red meter lead to one contact and the black lead to the other prong. The ohm resistance number should be the about the same for all the injectors. If any injector reading shows a higher or lower than average number, the cause will be a defective injector, which will cause a rough idle. A zero reading will indicate a shorted injector, and must be replaced. You can also use a stethoscope or a long handled screwdriver to place on the injector head. You should be able to hear a clicking sound, telling you that the injector is "pulsing." No clicking sound indicates a dead injector.
Carburetor-Equipped Vehicles
Examine the choke setting on a vehicle equipped with a choke adjusting knob or mechanism. Make sure the choke operates by opening slowly during normal engine warm-up. A choke that fails to open or sticks shut during warm engine running will cause a constant misfire and rough idle. A choke stuck in the open position will not allow an engine to warm up properly.
Trouble Codes
Hook up a portable trouble code tool for your specific Ford make and model. Look for any trouble codes that appear while the engine runs at idle. Write down any code number and look it up in a trouble-code manual. Most times, code numbers can pinpoint the exact system failure or miss in the engine.

2003 gmc savana rough idle then shuts off


Does it have any power when you start moving? I've seen a lot of plugged catalytic converters. You may want to have an exhaust back-pressure test done.

Black smoke from exhaust, rough idle, black soot on plugs


signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator-- the vehicle will run rough, the engine will not start ( usually in the mornings,) many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. replacement is only cure. 1- black soot on plugs-2-black smoke from tailpipe-3- running rough-4- stalling, good-day! repost if need be.

Will fuel regulator cause 2001 grand am 2.4 cyclinder run ruff with a slight engine knock at idle. And cause engine to shut off at hight speed.


No it will not, you need to have the knocking sound checked out, it could be rod bearing, or timing chain tensioner, both will damage engine, also need to check fuel pressure and ignition coil packs.

If the engine seems to run fine over 1450 RPM maybe there is a vacuum hose leaking or EGR valve is slightly stuck open. Any help from the OBD II trouble codes? Or is there simply no MIL and no stored information in the OBD II computer read at the local parts store through the connector by the drivers knee?
