SOURCE: code po340 says camshaft position

replace the cam shaft positioning sensor. this is not a big job
the sensor is usually on front of block above the crankshaft pulley wheel
to change involves disconecting wire from sensor. remove bolt remove sensor,intall new sensor, replace bolt.re connect wire

Check engine light po340 car skips over 60mph


The camshaft position sensor circuit is malfunctioning. This could be due to a wiring short in the circuit or the PCM and the camshaft position sensor may have failed.

Were is locat the po340 sensor


P0340 - 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


The Cam Position Sensor is located on the drivers side; the intake manifold is cut out where is sits on top of the engine block. Its black in color and has two 5.5 mm. screws that you'll be able to see.

Hope helps.

Po340 code will not start occasionally then engine light comes on and thats the code that shows


tht is a camshaft sensor code. you probablyhave a sensor just starting to go bad and when it does the truck won't start no more. if you want to look atthe wire haness going to the cam sensor and if it looks good thaan swap the cam sensor.

also if you give the size engine you have i can give you a test to do with a meter to check it. but most of the time if thevehicle is running you can't tell. it has to be broke to tet it. but to re assure you i istall alot of cam sensor nd also crank sensor. so it is a very common problem...goodluckand ask any more question you have.

P0705....Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Malfunction (PRNDL Input) . probably means that that a plug may have come off or a wire got cut thus the circuit to the Park , Reverse, nuetral , Drive or Low had a "malfuntion". Ot it couldbe the sensor itself on the tranny.
