I would think it would be just the Camshaft Position Sensor.I looked up the codes and they say pretty much the samething.

SOURCE: P0340 Code Camshaft Position Sensor


The Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor detects the position of the camshaft in order to identifiy when piston No. 1 is on its compression stroke. The CMP sensor is used for ignition timing in the Ford DIS igntion system, but not in the EDIS igntion system. Both DIS/EDIS use the CMP signal for synchronizing the firing of sequential fuel injectors.

On the 3.0L vulcan engine, the CMP signal is generated by a single Hall-Effect magnetic switch, activated by a single "vane" spinning around by virture of a synchronized shaft which is driven by the camshaft. 

The CMP sensor & synchronizer/shaft are located behind the intake manifold (i.e., back near the firewall on a Ranger) on the top of the cylinder block. If you just need to replace the sensor, it is a simple job of unplugging the electrical connector and removing the screws holding the sensor in place. Here is a sketch of the sensor to give you an idea what to look for:

SOURCE: most common cause for code P0340 of 95 Ranger

Hi, the cam shaft sensor will be located Under the hood, center, upper engine area, mounted behind rear of intake manifold, in the engine block.


This is a 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.

The possible causes of failure will be faulty housing or faulty wires as well. A faulty ECM could trigger a false alarm as well. this is highly unlikely but, possible in most cases. The most reported reasons is flat out sensor failure.

P0340 99 jeep cherokee code


P0340 JEEP - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit engine cylinder Bank 1 Sensor 1

Possible causes- Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
- Faulty starter motor
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery

Sometimes and in some models, low battery voltage or a weak starter can can trigger a Camshaft Position Sensor code.

My 2003 Nissan Frontier stalled and will not crank up when I. Scanned it the P0325 and P0340 codes appeared. How do I fix this?


I would say that the P0340 is causing your no start problem.....This is a cam sensor code......The cam sensor is in the distributor and is not servicable.....I would recommend taking it to a repair shop to properly diagnose the problem before replacing the distributor.

I HAVE A 99 CHRYSLER LHS AND IT SHUT DOWN AT IDLE AND TOOK TIME TO START BUT IT DID AND RAN LIKE **** SO THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON P0340 CAME UP SO I CHANGED THE CAM SENSOR BUT CAR STILL RUN LIKE **** I...


Try clearing the code and also disconnect the battery for a couple min. I had a car that had this problem. It did the same thing when the cam sensor was changed. I disconnected the battery and made the ecu relearn.

Its worth a shot, my next thing would be to check the coils.

On my 99 intrepid i canged both cam and crank positioning sensors the check engin light came on agin, with the code p0340. Can it be my wiring.


What does that mean? 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 Symptoms can include:
  • Hard starting or no start
  • Rough running / misfiring
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

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

Have a 99 taurus 3.0 ohc had a P0340 code changed sensor and synonizer used tool to locate when installing put motor at TDC first now next day get P1309 Do i need to redu complete process again?


I would recheck your setting as this can be generated if the Cam Sensor is not quite in synch. This is a very common code to appear post Cam Position Sensor replacement.
