Where is the camshaft position sensor on a 1998 Dodge Dakota 5.2L


The camshaft position sensor is located on the distributor for all engines designed for the 1998 Dodge Dakota. Accessing the sensor requires removing the distributor cap and the distributor rotor. The camshaft sensor pigtail comes through the front of the distributor and connects to the engine wiring harness above the intake manifold.

My car is running codes P0011 and P2181. Can you tell me what that is please. 2004 vw jetta gl


P0011 - Camshaft positioning sensor
P2181 - Engine cooling temperature sensor.
If you have a repair manual (chilton/haynes/etc) these should be fairly simple fixes.
Camshaft positioning sensor for my car was $35 and took about 15 minutes to change.

2carpros.com suggested the P2181 is also fairly easy to replace

Hi, how l fix the code on my vw golf 96 the code is po341 ?


the code po341 is camshaft position sensor is faulty, you will need to replace the sensor locate behind cam gear. I would pick up Haynes auto repair book for 20 bucks, it will give you instruction on camshaft tear down and it has pictures, great tools to have if you planing to do your own work, its not easy tasks and on top of that its time consuming. the part will cost ya 47 bucks.
