SOURCE: Diagnostic code P 340 and P 341 Camshaft Position

The Camshaft Position Sensor tells the PCM (computer) the position of the Camshaft Position. This Sensor sychronized along with several other Sensors including the Crankshaft Position Sensor the firing of the electronics to the spark plugs of each cylinder.
It is not difficult to replace and relatively inexpensive.
1. Disconnect the Negative side of the Battery,
2. Locate the Sensor and unplug.
3. Remove the Position Sensor retaining bolt.
4. Pull out the Sensor.
Replacement is reverse of above order.
Hint: use fresh engine oil on the end/sides of the Sensor especially around the rubber o-ring(s) to ease pushing the Sensor into proper position.

SOURCE: code reads P0340 Camshaft position Sensor circuit

That makes the computor think the timing is off. Replace the sensor and see if that does it. You will then have to have the code cleared (erased) or the light will come back on/stay on.

You'll need someone with a scanner to be able to check for trouble codes and also check those circuits to see if the sensors are sending data to the computer.

How do I replace the Camshaft position sensor on my 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 6 cyl diesel? Where is it and how do I get to it?


The Camshaft sensor is easily replaced. Just remove your distributor cap and rotor button, and there it is. Be careful however in removing this "Halls Effect" type magnetic switch for the wires leading out of the distributor fit into a groove in the side of the distributor. Quite often, I've found people in a hurry that will "chafe" the wires when installing the new camshaft sensor, so make sure you slide the wires from the sensor into the "U" shaped groove. About six inches from the distributor, you'll find the end that plugs into the Wiring Harness. Remove the old one and install the new one. If you're a perfectionist (like I tend to be)(smile), I always apply Di-Electric grease (found at most Auto Parts stores, for this is a Sensor and unwanted moisture or leaking electrical connections such as bad plug wires can lead to a false signal from the camshaft sensor to the computer, yielding in a No Start, a False Code, or Poor Gas Mileage. Just a suggestion.

Let me know if this works for you in understanding what I'm trying to explain here.

Good Luck,
