Question about 2006 Nissan Altima
I have a 2005 Altima 2.5S.(42k miles) I've had the car for 2 years and not had any problems. However for the last 2 days, its not starting properly on the first try. In some cases I have to let the car sit for 40 minutes before getting it to start up. The battery is brand new. The engine cranks over without any hesitation.
I've tried starting holding the peddle down 2/3 down (as suggested on some forums) - no luck
I've removed the battery terminal (in hopes it resets something) - no luck.
I connected an ODB II scanner and I get "Camshaft Sensor - Malfunction on Circuit 1" (Cen-Tech error code P0340)
I see there is a recall to reprogram the ECM - would this fix the problem. Or should I change the sensor?
I have a 2006 Nissan Altima and it does not start properly either. I have taken it to the dealer 3 times about this and they can not get it to "duplicate" they say. I need to know what the cause of this problem is? Can someone please help!!!
This is definitely a camshaft sensor malfunction, you can get away with not replacing it for awhile but eventually when it goes the car will stop starting, the sensor will need to be replaced hence why your car isn't starting but intermittently. Its easy to do and will take about 30 minutes to do, its just a pain to get to.

i think replacing the sensor is in order. i know all car makes have "recalibration updates" for the ecm and should be done, but have rarely fixed vehicles on just that alone. and your symptoms suggest the sensor could be intermittently bad
