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: 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: camshaft position sensor

The camshaft position sensor is on the rear cylinder head on the left end (the serpentine belt end of the engine - passenger side). It is a son-of-a gun to get at. When it is bad or the connector is intermittant or bad, the symptom will be irregular idle from 500 to 750 RPM or so.

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

My car is running codes P0011 and P2181. Can you tell me what that is please. 2004 vw jetta gl


P0011 - Camshaft positioning sensor
P2181 - Engine cooling temperature sensor.
If you have a repair manual (chilton/haynes/etc) these should be fairly simple fixes.
Camshaft positioning sensor for my car was $35 and took about 15 minutes to change.

2carpros.com suggested the P2181 is also fairly easy to replace

The car is not starting... i am getting a camshaft position sensor a bank 1 signal sensor


Hello,
Mine is VW, still... generally you need correct camshaft position, correct ignition thumb position, spark wire order, gas and current to the high-voltage coil and all over to the spark. You can check the spark with a spare spark put in one of the wires, outside the cylinder, connect the spark to negative point as well, then run the starter.
