Camshaft Position Sensor

I have a 94 Volks Jetta with the check engine light on.. It turned out to be the Camshft Position Sensor. I called the Volks Dealer and they told me that the sensor was built-in the DISTRIBUTOR ($350). Does anyone know how to do an easy fix without spending a lot of money? I was thinking Junk-yard.!! What are your suggestions?

2007 Toyota Camry ,camshaft sensor change out.Is there a requirement for any caliberation


No re-calibration is needed. If the sensor was bad, just replacing it will fix the problem. Takes a coder reader to turn off the light. Or after so many key on's the light will go out.

I doubt it as you have stated that it shows a calibration fault . This will be from the variable valve timing assembly on the cam shaft/s that is altering the valve timing. The timing chain may be faulty but you should be hearing it to be that bad.

- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
- Faulty starter motor
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery Tech notes Sometimes and in some models, low battery voltage or a weak starter can can trigger a Camshaft Position Sensor code.

- Engine StallP0340 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.

Camshft Location on engine


Chances are the camshaft is not bad unless it is broke or spun. I would check the cam sensor as well as its connector. If corosion is presant then replace and coat with dyeclectric grease

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.

Looking to find camshft sensor on 2002 land rover any help. I would be so thankfull.


On an overhead camshaft engine, look for the camshaft sensor near the end of the camshaft pulley area on the left or right side of the engine.

Camshaft Position Sensor Operation:00158_camshaft_position_sensor.jpgA magnetic or hall effect sensor. It sends a signal to the computer relaying information about shaft speed, position and acceleration or deceleration. This information determines when the fuel/air mixture needs to be ignited and how much mixture is needed for the engine.

Where is the cam shaft sensor in a 1996 jetta?


1996 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L SFI 4cyl
The Camshaft Position Sensor is located under hood, center, upper engine area, driver side of engine block, mounted in distributor.

This sensor performs the same function as a crankshaft position sensor; providing a signal to the ECM regarding the position of the crankshaft.

Although the camshaft position sensor is an essential input for the ECM to determine ignition timing, information on testing the sensor is located in of this guide (autozone.com / free register).

Hope help you; remember rated this help. Good luck.
