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:

change the crankshaft positon sensor in the rear of the engine above the oilfilter. Also check the wiring to this sensor, they have a problem shorting out. You have to change the camshaft and crankshaft sensors at the same time. Make sure you give your car a major tune up. Did you check yor starter?.........runjoe

SOURCE: I have an 06 Cobalt

I'm not sure what size your engine is but I believe on the 2.2L the camshaft position sensor is at the front right hand side of the valve cover. The 2.4L is the same but with another cam sensor on the exact opposite (back) side of the valve cover, closest to the firewall.I don't know about it on a 2.0L, probably close to the same. The 2.4L also has two cam actuator solenoids (one for exhaust and one for intake, marked on valve cover) on the left hand side of the valve cover, directly on top. Each part costs in a range of $20-60 depending on where you go. Hope this helps.

Long crank time, gives the same code 3 times

p0340 is a camshaft sensor circuit malfunction, and that will effectively cause long crank times before starting and also can cause rough idles, sputtering, etc.. Could be the sensor itself being faulty, could be the ring gear giving the sensor it's position that is dirty/damaged/bent, could be the connectors/prongs being loose or dirty, could be frayed or corroded wiring, or could be a faulty PCM, although it's alot rarer for a PCM to go bad. So start by checking the wires and connectors and the sensor gear, as this will be the only thing not costing money to do. If all else seems good, change the camshaft sensor if you can find one at a decent price.

Changed the camshaft and crank sensor now getting a code p0340 no camshaft reference signal at PCM for my dodge durango 2000

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.

I got a camshaft position sensor malfunction code P0340 from my code reader and needs to know how to repair the problem for a 2000 Ford Focus SE. My car will not crank.

it sounds like you have bigger problems if your car does not crank(turn over) then your timing belt could have broken and the one piston could be hitting a valve causing it to be locked up.normally when any sensor is bad car engine still cranks it just doesn't start.

Code p0340 need location on 2004 sebring 2.7 v6

P0340 OBD-II Trouble Code
Technical Description
Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction

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 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

Also, the cams/crank are out of alignment, thats why you are getting a cam position code (P0340). For more details about your model, you can visit (free register)

Hope helped whit this (remember rated this help) Good luck.
