DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FOR ABOUT 5 MINS THEN PUT THE CAR IN LOW GEAR AND RUN THE CAR DOWN THE ROAD UP TO 4,000 RPM THEN LET OFF AND LET THE CAN SLOW DOWN ON ITS OWN ,DO THIS THREE TIMES .WHAT THIS DOES IS LET THE CAMSHAFT SENSOR AND THE CRANKSHAFT SENSOR LEARN EACH OTHER ,THIS HAPPENS ON THE DECELERATION PART WHEN THE ECU SHUTS THE INJECTORS OFF .THEIR IS MORE TO THIS.BUT THIS WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM

    No, this did not work. When we did what you said, we drove the car about 3 miles down the road and the catalytic converter plugged up and started on fire.

Check the part number with the dealership. Make sure you have the correct part.

Does my jeep need to be reset by a computer to sync the system to recognize all the new parts in order to run like new?


No, it should not have to be reset. If you would like you can take the battery cable off the battery for at least a minute and that should reset the computer. It shouldn't matter though.

My 2004 VW Passat 1.8 turbo has had quite a few problems. In February my car started flashing OIL PRESSURE TURN MOTOR OFF whenever I'd hit 2000 RPM. SO I got my oil changed and my pressure checked and it...


With all of the low voltage problems going on here I would check the body computer. That is the only thing I can think of that would cause all of this. Some others may have suggestions on this.

2000 dodge neon will not start unless the cam shaft sensor is unplugged


I would go and but a cam sensor from the dealer. Aftermarket cam sensors can be slightly irregular. I had this happen to me with an aftermarket ABS sensor on a chevy. The whole problem was a gap difference equal to two sheets of paper. Whats happening is there is an open circuit in your old sensor that causes the check engine light but the new one has a good circuit but bad reading. I would say that is your problem.

there are tsbs on this problem where the dealer has made new style cam and crank sensors and they should be replaced in a set and gotten from the dealer. i would have this problem checked but from what you listed i would say you need to replace the sensors. good day.

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

Cam shaft sensor


You always need to check the wiring system when you get a code and not just throw parts at it,I'm sorry this happened to you.

Error code po340 for a 2002 hyundai elantra


Here is what I could find on your P0340 error code:
CausesA 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 SolutionsWith 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
Sounds like since you have replaced both the camshaft and crank shaft sensors you need to look at the PCM.  Go down the line of possible solutions and don't replace the PCM unless nothing else works obviously.  I hope this helps but it looks like you are looking at getting a new PCM.  Good luck.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Car cranks but won't start. Diagnostic code says


I changed all the parts I mentioned and finally I decided to try the crank shaft sensor and if that didn't work I was going to replace the cam shaft sensor. Luckily the crank shaft sensor worked but only after I replaced all the other parts. But at least now it finally started.

Thsank you.
