    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.

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?
