After replacing a camshaft position sensor a p1390 shows up
I replaced a CMPS on a 1999 avenger with a 2.0l engine, for an oil leak and got this code, cleared it and the code came back. The code reader reads ignition control or misfire problem. Could this be a defective aftermarket cam sensor?
Re: After replacing a camshaft position sensor a p1390...
I have a 97 eclipse and the check lights on and i got the same code. just replaced the cam sensor and wires spark plugs. and and the idle bogs low and now the ****** wont start aftr long trips for some reason

Re: After replacing a camshaft position sensor a p1390...
Cam sensor fires the injectors so ignition control is not really what it does. The crankshaft sensor provides spark control, the Cam sensor provides injector pulse timing.
The actual code no it throws is much more use for us to diagnose...pls specify the Engine light code and I can be much more helpful.
Why did u change the cam sensor for an oil leak? that does not seem to be an appropriate repair.... anyhow more info=better help

P0017 Dodge - Crankshaft-Camshaft Timing Misalignment Bank 1 Sensor 2Possible causes
- Engine oil dirty - Incorrect engine viscosity - Crankshaft position sensor circuit is open or shorted - Camshaft position sensor circuit is open or shorted - Faulty crankshaft position sensor - Faulty camshaft position sensor - Timing gear misalign
On 2001-2005 vehicles the camshaft position sensor is mounted at the
rear of the cylinder head. On 2006 vehicles, the camshaft position
sensor is located on top of the engine, on the engine head cover.
Connect the scan tool to the data link connector.
Start the engine. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature.
Monitor the CMPS signal. It should continuously fluctuate between 0-5 volts.
If abnormality is found, replace the sensor.
Removal & Installation
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disconnect the connector from the sensor.
Remove the bolt that retains the sensor.
Remove the sensor.
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

P0340 OBD-II Trouble Code - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.
Symptoms can include: * Hard starting or no start * Rough running / misfiring * Loss of engine power
Causes: A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened: * a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken * the camshaft position sensor may have failed * the PCM may have failed * there exists an open circuit * the crankshaft position sensor may have failed
Possible Solutions: With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try: * Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit * Check for continuity in the circuit wiring * Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor * Replace the camshaft position sensor as required * Check the crankshaft position circuit as well * Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required * Diagnose/replace the PCM as required
This involves the front oxygen sensor on Bank 1. This code indicates the engine air fuel ratio is not being adjusted by the oxygen sensor signal or the ECM as expected to do so, or not adjusted as often as expected to do so once the engine is warmed or under normal engine use.
Symptoms: You will likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms.
Causes: A code P0133 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: * The oxygen sensor is faulty * The wiring to the sensor is broken / frayed * There is an exhaust leak
Possible Solutions: The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back. If the code comes back, the problem is more than likely the front Bank 1 oxygen sensor. You will likely wind up replacing it but you should also consider these possible solutions: * Check and fix any exhaust leaks * Check for wiring problems (shorted, frayed wires) * Check the frequency and amplitude of the oxygen sensor (advanced) * Check for a deteriorating / contaminated oxygen sensor, replace if necessary * Check for inlet air leaks * Check the MAF sensor for proper operation
This is the direct definition of this code Mitsubishi DTC P1390 - Timing Belt Skipped 1 Tooth or More. Probable Causes, -Timing belt improperly installed -Camshaft position sensor improperly installed -Camshaft position sensor connector improperly connected -Crankshaft position sensor connector improperly connected -Camshaft's relative position not relearned after one of the following have been serviced: Camshaft, Camshaft sprocket, timing belt tension-er, cylinder head, head gasket, crankshaft sprocket, crankshaft cylinder block or the PCM.
Sounds like something to do with the timing belt it self. You can go to any Autozone or Checker and ask for a code reader (they will let you use it for free) and it will show this code again. You can also reset the cars computer with the code reader to see if it comes back with the same code.
You need to check the cam phazer and see if it's damaged. Lots of the time it leaks oil into the connector and messes up the wires. Also I've seen the oil control screens come out of the phazer and go into the engine, which will also set the coeds. If I were you I'd pull the phazer out and see if all 3 of the oil control screens are there. My bet is one will be missing. Make sure to change the oil too. You may get lucky and it will have made it to the oil pan? Other wise I wouldn't worry too much about it. Most of the time it will not cause any engine problems. Good luck, oh and you do have to pull the power steering pump off to get the phazer out. But you can just take the bolts out for the pump and let it fall down so you can get the phazer out!
are you sure that it is still the O2 censor? are you assuming because the check engine light is still on? because you have to reset it after fixing something you just disconnect your battery completely for a bit like 15mins and then reconnect it and the light should go away.
The service engine light DOES NOT mean change your oil. The change oil or maintence required light means change oil. The service engine light is the same as a check engine light and means that there is something (not always really bad) is going on with your motor and need someone that has a code reader to let you know what the code is. Yes that code is a camshaft position sensor code. It is located on the passenger side of the engine in the "valley" between the two cyclinder heads. Its not too hard as long as you have some tools and some skills. Its easiest to remove the serpentine belt and remove the bolts for the power steering pump. That way you can move the pump a little to gain better access to remove the cam sensor. Just replaced one yesterday on a 99 century. Hope that helps!
