It sounds like that either the dowels were misalined or the target bolt in the center of magnet was over torqued. Make sure when installing magnet that the dowel pins are aligned with the hole on the back of the cam.(make sure that there is nothing in the holes on the cam).Install the center bolt and torque to 30 in-lbs. Then make sure the new o-ring is installed on cam sensor. Install sensor and torque mounting bolts to 80 in-lbs. If you follow this very closely,you should not have anymore problems. Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: how do you check and change a camshaft position

The camshaft sensor wouldn't explain the clattering noise. But a timing chain would explain both. Clattering from a loose chain and the camshaft sensor code from when the chain broke and the camshafts stopped turning.

I have a nissan murano 2005 with the code p1701 and a p0340 how can i use them to repair these codes


Nissan Murano P0340 2005 Nissan Murano - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit
Possible causes- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor-
Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection- Faulty starter motor- Starting system circuit-
Dead (Weak) battery
P1701- Fuel trim

I would suggest replacing the camshaft position sensor. When the sensor fails it can cause changes in fuel system that the computer can detect. So I suspect once the camshaft sensor ivreplaced that the P1701 code will be gone.

P0340 FORD Description The Camshaft Position Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Engine Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The camshaft position sensor senses the retraction of camshaft (intake) to identify a particular cylinder. The camshaft position sensor senses the piston position. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor.

When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.

When the crankshaft position sensor (POS) system becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides various controls of engine parts instead, utilizing timing of cylinder identification signals.

Do you have to remove the cam gear to change the camshaft senaor.


Courtesy of a Beetle forum.

The camshaft position sensor is located at the front of the cylinder head under the timing belt cover. On 2.0L models, the camshaft position sensor is located behind the camshaft sprocket and is equipped with a pigtail lead and a remote connector. On 1.8L turbo models, the camshaft position sensor is located at the front of the intake camshaft. check the terminals in the connector and the wires leading to the sensor for looseness and breaks. Repair as required.

Before checking the camshaft position sensor, check the voltage supply and ground circuits from the ECM. Dosconnect the electrical connector from the camshaft position sensor and connect a voltmeter to terminals 1 and 3 at the harness connector from the camshaft position sensor and connect a voltmeter to terminals 1 and 3 at the harness connector. Turn the ignition key On - the voltage should read approximately 5.0 volts. If the voltage is incorrect, check the wiring from the camshaft position sensor to the ECM. If the circuits are good, have the ECM checked at a dealer service department or other properly equipped repair facility.

To check the camshaft position sensor operation, reconnect hte connector to the camshaft position sensor and using a suitable probe, backprobe terminal no. 2 of the camshaft position sensor connector. Connect the positive lead of a voltmeter to the probe and the negative lead to a good engine ground point. Turn the ignition key On. Rotate the engine slowly with a breaker bar and socket attached to the crankshaft pulley center bolt while watching the meter. The voltage should fluctuate between zero volts and 10.0 volts as the vanes in the reluctor wheel past the sensor. If the test results are incorrect, replace the camshaft position sensor. Note: Rotate the engine slowly through at least two complete revolutions. Removing the spark plugs from the engine will make the crankshaft much easier to turn. Warning: If you remove the spark plugs, unplug the primary (low voltage) electrical connector(s) from the ignition coil(s) to disable the ignition system

All ways, the camshaft position sensor signal sent to the ECM is intermittent

The Camshaft Position Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The camshaft position sensor senses the retraction of camshaft (intake) to identify a particular cylinder. The camshaft position sensor senses the piston position. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor.

When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.

When the crankshaft position sensor (POS) system becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides various controls of engine parts instead, utilizing timing of cylinder identification signals.

Change cam position sensor chy


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the electrical harness connector from the camshaft position sensor.
  3. Unfasten the camshaft position sensor mounting bolt. There is a hole in the bracket for tool access to the sensor mounting bolt.
  4. Rotate the sensor away from the engine block.
  5. Pull the camshaft position sensor up out of the chain case cover. Do not pull on the sensor wire.
There is an O-ring on the sensor case. The O-ring may make removal of the sensor difficult. A light tap on top of the sensor prior to removal may reduce the force needed for removal. Inspect the O-ring for damage and replace if necessary.
To install:
If the sensor removed is going to be re-installed, clean off the old spacer on the sensor face. A new spacer must be attached to the sensor face before installation. If the sensor is being replaced, be sure that a paper spacer is attached to the sensor face and an O-ring is positioned in the groove of the new sensor.
  1. Apply 1-2 drops of clean engine oil to the O-ring prior to installing the sensor.
  2. Install the sensor into the chain case cover and rotate into position.
  3. Push down on the sensor until contact is made with the camshaft gear. While holding the sensor in this position, install and tighten the mounting bolt to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  4. Attach the electrical harness connector to the camshaft position sensor.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
