SOURCE: How to replace ABS Sensor

They're a pain because they press into the hub. Some of them have a retaining bolt, others don't. The problem is that heat in the hub, from rolling friction in the wheel bearing and brake system heat transfer causes them to seize in place. The only way I've been able to remove them is to remove the end axle bolt that holds the axle in place, pivot the upright to gain access to the inside of the upright from behind, and tap the sensor out. You have to be careful not to damage it, and it helps a lot to spray some PB Blaster or penetrating oil in there to help loosen things up. If you try to pry or lever it out from the wire end of the sensor, you WILL destroy it.

SOURCE: 1997 VW Passat trouble code

Hi ejj509,

Both my 97 Passat and my wife's 99 Passat were throwing the same OBD codes you listed.

Both VW's had the same problem. There is no "quick" solution for the problem. I can tell you what I found, what I had to do and how I repaired both vehicles so they no longer throw this OBD error code.

I removed the black plastivc AIR pump and found that three of the six aluminum rivets which hold the AIR pump impeller housing together had rotted off so the case was leaking air. I went to a hardware store with one of the aluminum rivets I had removed from the AIR pump and bought six brass machine screws and brass nuts. I gouged the aluminum rivets out and replaced them with the brass machine screws.

After I had replaced the AIR pump in the VW, I cleared the codes and ran the diagnostics again.
It still threw the same codes!!!

Next, I removed the plastic top engine cover from the VW engine (VR6) and located the many air solenoids hidden under the cover. I went to a local NAPA shop and purchased an eight foot length of their smallest gauge neoprene gas line (1/8 inch ID).

I carefully removed each piece of rotted VW vacuum line from the air solenoids and replaced each rotted section with lengths of the new neoprene gas line. I had to follow out each of the old vacuum lines and replace them because they were badly deteriorated. This took about five hours to accomplish.

I replaced the plastic engine cover and connected up my cable from my laptop to the VW's computer port, cleared all of the codes and ran a new scan. This time the scan was clear! Woo Hoo! Apparently, the problem was both the leaking AIR pump and faulty, deteriorated (cheap) Volkswagen vacuum lines.

It was well worth the effort. My driveway has now become a bonafied VW repair shoppe.

the code po341 is camshaft position sensor is faulty, you will need to replace the sensor locate behind cam gear. I would pick up Haynes auto repair book for 20 bucks, it will give you instruction on camshaft tear down and it has pictures, great tools to have if you planing to do your own work, its not easy tasks and on top of that its time consuming. the part will cost ya 47 bucks.

2004 Chevrolet Optra trouble code PO341. Changed the cam position sensor,New.Still getting same code.

Put GM P0341 into Google are watch a few films on it on Youtube. It seems to be common. The wiring connector may be your problem. You'll need a multi-function meter to see if that's it. Fluke makes good one for not much money.

Engine codes p0011 & P0034 on my 2001 VW passat I replaced the camshaft positioning sensor and not did not fix the problem can anyone help?

Well code 11 means the computer thinks the cam timing is too far advanced, which could be a timing belt issue.
Code 34 is supposed to be a problem with the turbo if your car has one.
Trouble codes seldom mean a sensor has failed.

I have a 2006 VW passat and electronic power steering

If you put it on a code reader it will likely say this, 44-Steering Assist -- Status: Malfunction 0010 if you delete the code it may get it working, if not the sensor is inside the steering rack so would need another rack, Jacking it up may have just upset the sensor so clearing the fault code may work...

1998 vw 2.0 starts runs but surges advance throttle to aprox 2000 rpm dies? codes po322 po341 p1543 p1565 maf disc onnected get code po102

Throttle position sensor TPS is not behaving. Codes p1543 and p1565 indicate the throttle position is too low... as if disconnected. The other codes are as a result of the EECU noting the disparity between the throttle input signal and the expected input from the engine speed and distributor/cam sensor. Check that the connector and wiring to the TPS. If these are OK then it is the TPS that needs to be changed.
