    Your car has two camshaft sensors. Has a camshaft related trouble code been found? If yes, which one?

    Heads up-- camshaft sensor codes can set on this vehicle NOT indicating a problem with the sensor or its related wiring.

    Please desribe any problems you are having to the best of your ability.

SOURCE: How do I replace a camshaft position sensor on a 2000 ford escort

bullshits, the CMP sensor is near the 4 injector, you have to take out all the electric conector near injector 4, take out the 2 screws that hold the fuel rail, sometimes you have to take out the 4 injector for the space, then take out the screws that hold the CMP, lub the o´ring of the new one and reverse this steps.

Yes, All the years of the ZX2 utilize the same engine. 1998-2003 are all the same except for ECU programing and the MAF wiring. You should not have a problem.

I have a 2000 ford escort zx2 that has a code of po340, i wanted to know what needs to fixed and a good repair shop in my area.

It needs a timing belt. It has either stretched or jumped time. You can try replacing the cam sensor first, but despite the description, it usually means it is out of time. You'll want to make sure the cam sensor is plugged in (on the front right of the engine head) and that the VCT solenoid is plugged in (sticks out of the top left of the valve cover) and have it scanned again to see if you got any new codes like P138x.

Location of cam and crank position sensors

The cam sensor is located at the front right front side of the cylinter head, while you are facing the engine.---------- The crank position sensor located below the pcv valve that is located on block not the valve cover, its below the exhaust manifold. You will have to remove the catalytic converter to see the exact view of both the sensors. The camshaft sensor is on the head. The crankshaft sensor is in the block, just below the exhaust manifold. ------------ Thanks.Helpmech.
