Need to know how many sensor. is on my transmission.. 2003 Pontiac Montana v 6 .. can you show me picture where transmission control solenoid goes?


There are 12 common sensors and 10 internal sensors. The most common that often fail (MAP), (TPS), (CAM), (IGN), (CRANK) MAP is your mass air flow which is located at the beginning of your air intake, TPS is the throttle body position sensor, the CAM is the cam shaft position sensor (transmission), IGN ignition position sensor and the CRANK sensor is located near the bottom driver side front

This repair shop says this neon 2.0l needs a cam sensor, bought a new part and bolted it up, i still have the code 0344, misfire detected... also new plugs and wires. any alignment required for sensor? i...


  • P0344 means that the Camshaft Position Sensor is having intermittent disruption.

  • Check the connector real well and the wires for breaks, cracks, bulging wires etc.


  • I think that aftermarket sensors are worthless to be honest. I recommend OEM sensor only because aftermarkets often don't work. So if you bought a CAM sensor at your local parts store then I would take it back and order from Chrysler.

  • A chipped tooth on your CAM sensor can cause this code as well because the sensor reads rotation. A missing tooth of the CAM will give an in the rotation of the CAM.


  • So the first this I would do is check the crankshaft position sensor as a fault from there can effect the CAM sensor too.

  • The crankshaft position sensor is in the engine block behind the alternator / just above the oil filter. See diagram below. Clean it real well and check the wiring.




  • Also make sure you clear the codes after the repair of they will remain. A CAM light does not usually just go away after fixing the reason for that code.


  • Now check the wiring and connector to the CAM sensor reall well and repair as necessary. Now clear the codes and see where you stand. If that light comes back and it is the same code then get an OEM CAM sensor and clear the codes again.


  • If that light comes back again then you will need to pull the timing cover and inspect the CAM itself for missing test.


  • If you have any questions please feel free to ask.


  • If you are satisfied with my help then please do leave a comment so others know of my quality work.

  • Pull the connector and the mounting bolt[s] to remove.

I can't find the location of the crankshaft postion sensor in my 2000 Hyundai sonata


My online Sonata manual shows these possibilities, but does not identify which applies specifically to 2000 Sonata.
Also, when you talk to the dealership parts counter, you'll need to know whether your 2000 Sonata is (a) 4-cylinder 2.4L MFI DOHC engine, or (b) 6-cylinder 2.5L MFI DOHC engine.
Its easy to tell - just count your spark plug wires.

-- begine excerpt from 2000 Hyundai Sonata Repair guide --

The crankshaft position sensor is located next to the flywheel.
The crankshaft position sensor is located next to the flywheel/torque converter.
The camshaft position sensor is located on the engine near the timing belt cover and under the upper radiator hose.
The crankshaft position sensor is located on the driver-s side of the vehicle, down by the lower radiator hose.
The crankshaft position sensor is located on the engine near the crankshaft pulley.
The crankshaft position sensor is located at the front of the engine near the timing belt.

I can't find the camshaft position sensor. I don't know much about this stuff. I have went to auto zone and advance auto and heard 3 different stories. Came home and tore the car down 3 different places...


The cam shaft position sensor is located right behind the exhaust cam by the fire wall. It is held by two 10 mm bolts, one on each side of the sensor. If you got the hood up and looking at the engine the cam that is on the right hand is the exhaust cam. To get to the CPS you have to remove the intake and cam top cover.

2005 ford excursion cam sensor location I need to change the cam sensor and the crank sensors on my excursion and i do not know where they are located


On my 02 Excursion with the 7.3L Diesel, the Cam Position Sensor is located at the front bottom of the engine on the passengers side. There is one electrical pigtail plug that is attached and one bolt holds the sensor in position. It may be located in a similar location on your 05 Ex. I do not know where the crank sensor is located. I hope this helps.

WHERE IS THE CAM POSITION SENSOR LOCATED ON A 2004 NISSAN MAXIMA


WHEN YOU STAND ON THE FRONT OF THE CAR YOU ONE IS RIGHT BELOW OF THE INTAKE WHICH IS BANK 2 OR THE ONE CLOSE TO FIREWALL , BANK 1 ONE IS ON SAME SIDE NEXT TO THE RADIATOR BUT THEY BOTH ON THE CAM RIGHT SIDE OF THE ENGINE, THE EASIEST WAY TO IDENTIFY THEM IS THAT THEIR CONNECTOR IS GREEN, ONCE YOU LOCATE THEM THE CLIP NEEDS TO BE PUSHED DOWN TOWARD THE SENSOR FOR THE CONNECTOR TO BE RELEASED, ONCE YOU REMOVE THE CONNECTOR THERE WILL BE ONLY A 10MM SCREW HOLDING THE SENSOR PULL IT OUT , THE SAME SETTING THE NEW ONE PUSH IT ALL THE WAY IN , THIGHT THE 10MM SCREW, CONNECT IT BACK AND YOU'RE DONE,BUT FOR THE ONE ON THE BACK SOMETIMES MIGHT BE NECESARY FOR YOU TO TAKE THE INTAKE OFF....HOPEFULLY IS NOT YOUR CASE....



Good luck!!! and if you need the crank for hard starting on hot/warm, it is located on the botton middle section on the transmission is the only cable that goes down to a small piece of metal and it is held by a 10mm screw only to protect the sensor, you will se the sensor once you remove that small about 6-8 inches piece of metal. Then you'll be able to unescrew the 10mm screw that holds the crank position sensor. when you pull it off you'll be able to see the fly wheel inside the transmission...



you all enjoy your rides out htere!!!
