change the crankshaft positon sensor in the rear of the engine above the oilfilter. Also check the wiring to this sensor, they have a problem shorting out. You have to change the camshaft and crankshaft sensors at the same time. Make sure you give your car a major tune up. Did you check yor starter?.........runjoe

SOURCE: 2004 pt cruiser keeps setting DTC's P0032 & P0038 ,sensors have been replaced with NTK

Hello, First, you have to clear some of the Codes with a scanner or wait after 25-35 start-ups for the information to cycle out of the system.

Next, make sure you have replaced the correct Bank or lower or upper sensor when there can be 4 sensors on the exhaust.

The wiring running to your sensors may be bad. Also, if anyone has fooled with the wiring to the sensors, some have cooling tubes which are embedded in the wiring. Sometimes people rewire the connectors to fit different O2 sensor plug-ins and the cooling tube is cut. When these plug-ins are manipulated this way the sensors overheat.

I can't say offhand about how your PT cruiser has its wires configured into junction connectors. They may be replaceable junctions or may be moulded into the housing of the O2 control unit as 1 piece.

You will need to ask at an Autoparts store or go to a Salvage yard and try to find a harness you can use. It is not impossible that the sensors you purchased could be bad. You should be able to get some sort of continuity value from the prong connectors on the O2 sensors to see if you have a circuit in the part.

I hope my solution is helpful, perhaps a Chrysler mechanic will answer you.

2008 pt cruiser - check engine light came on, within minutes it started to "power down" and and died. Won't start. What could cause this? BTW have changed spark plugs, camshaft sensore, cranks


My PT did that when my timing belt broke. It cost $500.00 to replace it. If it is broken, be ready to have some motor work done. I had to have to values replaced at a cost of $900.00. If your timing belt is not broken then check the alternator and battery. I was riding down the road and my PT shut all the way down and would not start. I had to leave it beside the road. It was my alternator. It gave me no warning.

This could be related to a loose camshaft drive belt. If you have slack in the belt the camshaft will rebound on over run causing the P0340. It can also be a Crackshaft sensor problem too.(P0335) Hope this helps...

Code P0340 & P0344 car was running then i turned it off to put my key back on chain and tried to start itr again and it wont start


These codes indicate a possible camshaft position sensor failure, however a defective crank sensor can set these codes as well, due to the fact that both sensors share some of the same circuitry. I would highly recommend a powertrain control module update first, reference TSB# 18-026-03 before any parts replacement. Your local Chrysler dealer can perform this update.

Getting code P0340, No camshaft position sensor signal at PCM, should I replace sensor or go straight to timing belt


Replace the cam sensor with a factory sensor. Aftermarket sensors can still trigger the light when nothing is wrong.
