SOURCE: P0340 Code Camshaft Position Sensor


The Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor detects the position of the camshaft in order to identifiy when piston No. 1 is on its compression stroke. The CMP sensor is used for ignition timing in the Ford DIS igntion system, but not in the EDIS igntion system. Both DIS/EDIS use the CMP signal for synchronizing the firing of sequential fuel injectors.

On the 3.0L vulcan engine, the CMP signal is generated by a single Hall-Effect magnetic switch, activated by a single "vane" spinning around by virture of a synchronized shaft which is driven by the camshaft. 

The CMP sensor & synchronizer/shaft are located behind the intake manifold (i.e., back near the firewall on a Ranger) on the top of the cylinder block. If you just need to replace the sensor, it is a simple job of unplugging the electrical connector and removing the screws holding the sensor in place. Here is a sketch of the sensor to give you an idea what to look for:

SOURCE: What makes a camshaft position sensor go bad, are

Usually something in the wiring inside the sensor goes bad. Not usually any signs, they just seem to go out randomly. Not sure how hard they are on the hyundai's, but it should be somewhere on the valve cover.

SOURCE: replacing bad camshaft position sensor

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Remove water pump pulley attaching bolts, then the serpentine belt and water pump pulley.
  3. Disconnect sensor wiring connector and remove sensor retaining bolt.
  4. Twist and pull sensor to remove.
Reverse procedure to install and prior to installing new sensor, lubricate sensor O-ring.

It is located under the water pump. Make sure when you remove the sensor that you rotate the crank shaft and look in the hole to make sure the pick up magnet is still in there. Sometimes they come loose and cause a no start or long crank. You will need to have the code cleared still.

SOURCE: where is the camshaft position sensor on a 2006

You probably need a camshaft position actuator solenoid. 12597025 is the gm part number and its on the passenger side of cylinder head at the front of engine. They gave trouble when they first came out with this engine on this gm built truck. See www.myisuzuparts.com for a picture.

What are the probable causes of camshaft sensor DTC?


Camshaft sensors do go bad. They can go bad slowly, so you don't notice the badness until your engine stalls, but restarts, or you get a "check engine" light. They are not expensive or hard to replace.

On the I6 engine, it's on the front of the engine on the block near the camshaft. Directly below where you put your oil in.
