-Here is best solution:
-Go Online and check on bing's picture page for Image (picture of the sensor) then you have idea what looks like.
-Most car it locate on the side near the cam.

It depends on the vehicle. and you did not say what type of vehicle. most general motors C/S sensors are located at the front of the engine above the timing chain cover . some are located on the Rt. sice of the cylinder head

SOURCE: camshaft position sensor location

crank sensor is a component used in an internal combustion engine to monitor the position or rotational speed of the crankshaft. This information is used by engine management systems to control ignition system timing and other engine parameters. Before electronic crank sensors were available, the distributor would have to be manually adjusted to a timing mark on the engine.

The crank sensor can be used in combination with a similar camshaft position sensor to monitor the relationship between the pistons and valves in the engine, which is particularly important in engines with variable valve timing. It is also commonly the primary source for the measurement of engine speed in revolutions per minute.

Crank sensors in engines are usually comprised of magnets and an inductive coil. They are principally based on the Hall effect. Common mounting locations include the main crank pulley, the flywheel, or occasionally on the crankshaft itself.

Some engines, such as GM's Premium V family utilise crank position sensors which read a reluctor ring integral to the Harmonic Balancer. This is a much more accurate method of determining the position of the crankshaft, and allows the computer to determine within a few degrees the exact position of the crankshaft (and thereby all connected components) at any given time.

2006 frontier camshaft position sensor


If you do not know where the Camshaft Position Sensor is located, then it would be safe to assume that you have not properly tested the sensor or the circuits that operate the sensor. Therefore, you cannot possibly know for sure that it even NEEDS to be replaced...so why are you looking to replace it?

checked the spark plug wires if is cracked P0340 is no cam signalat the PCM is. The camshaft position sensor information, along with the crankshaft position sensor information, is used control the fuel injection synchronization. The excess heat from the catalytic converter indicatesunburned fuel going out the exhaust. The catalytic converteris designed to burn any fuelleft in the exhaust. It sounds like your injectors are definitely out of sync dumping raw fuel out the exhaust. Since youreplaced the both the sensors and the PCM, it sounds like a wiring problem betweenone of the sensors and the PCM. Always use a digital multi-meter so you don't blow the PCM. Pull the cam sensor connector and check, with the key on, for about 8VDC on the orange wire (power from the PCM), and put the negative lead on the black/light blue wire (ground.) If you get about 8 volts both of those 2 wires are good. That just leaves thetan/yellow wire (sensor signal.) The signal should fluctuate 0 to 5 volts as the cam notches pass the sensor. To check the wire you would have to probe this wire at the PCM with all the connections put together, key on, and engine rotating (either by hand or with the starter.) The crank sensor wiring could be checked basically the same way. Overheating the cayalytic converter can cause the ceramic beads inside of it to crack, requiring replacement. Don't overheat the converters if you can help it. Turning the key on with a sensor unplugged will usually set an OBD code that will need to be cleared. It sounds like your on the right track.

No - I don't believe that if you have those codes that your problem would be a head gasket. Saturns are kind-of a wierd animals. They use spark duration on the ignition coils to determine camshaft position. They don't actually have a Camshaft Position Sensor like most cars. If you are getting a Camshaft Sensor code, the most likely problem is worn out spark plugs, bad spark plug wires, a bad ignition coil, or a bad ignition module. If the vehicle has not had a tune-up in a long time, I would try plugs and wires first. If this doesn't work, I would replace the ignition coils. This will usually fix it. I have had a couple howerver, that ended up with a bad ignition module (the thing that the coils mount on) but this is somewhat rare.

I keep getting a code P0340.Chrysler has reprogrammed the PCM for a long start issue.I cant seem to get anywhere with it.


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


Hope helps.

How do you check and change a camshaft position


The camshaft sensor wouldn't explain the clattering noise. But a timing chain would explain both. Clattering from a loose chain and the camshaft sensor code from when the chain broke and the camshafts stopped turning.

Cant find cam sensor in 2004 dodge stratus r/t


2.0L 2.4L it is on The BACK OF the Cylinder Head REMOVAL
The camshaft position sensor is mounted to the rear of the cylinder head.

  1. Remove the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the PCV hose and reposition.
    1. Disconnect electrical connectors from the camshaft position sensor.
    2. Remove camshaft position sensor mounting screws. Remove sensor.
      1. Loosen screw attaching target magnet to rear of camshaft and remove magnet.
      INSTALLATION
      The target magnet has locating dowels that fit into machined locating holes in the end of the camshaft.

      1. Install target magnet in end of camshaft. Tighten mounting screw to 3 Nm (30 in. lbs.) torque. Over torqueing could cause cracks in magnet. If magnet cracks replace it.
      2. Install camshaft position sensor. Tighten sensor mounting screws to 12.9 Nm (115 in. lbs.) torque.
      3. Carefully attach electrical connector to camshaft position sensor. Installation at an angle may damage the sensor pins.
      4. Connect the PCV Valve hose.
      5. Connect the negative battery cable.
