This is actually an easy swap out. Remove the electrical connection, remove the retaining bolt and pull out old one. I believe the sensor is located in the front passenger side of the engine on this particular model.

SOURCE: a p0340 trouble code and i changed the cam

Code P0340 is a camshaft position sensor CIRCUIT fault. This means it can be a bad sensor, wiring fault (loose connector, short, open), or even a bad PCM. Since you've already changed the camshaft position sensor you've eliminated that possibility. It's time to do some electrical troubleshooting. That, of course, depends upon your skill set for this type of work and equipment (mostly a good dmm and schematics). If you're not equipped for this then you'll likely have to seek assistance from a local shop.

SOURCE: Where is the cam shaft position sensor located?

It's not that hard to replaced, and can be done with common tools.  3.4 camshaft sensor removal:
Remove the serpentine belt, Disconnect the sensor wire harness, Remove the power steering pump (just remove it from the mount and out of the way), Remove the attachment bolt to the sensor, Remove the sensor, (note spray around the sensor with brake parts cleaner before removal to keep dirt from entering the engine)
To install: Lubricate the new O ring with engine oil before installing the new camshaft sensor, Tighten the retaining bolt to 8 ft.lbs.  connect the sensor's electrical wire, reinstall the power steering pump, reinstall the serpentine belt. 
Start the car and go out for the night with the money you just saved, You can pick up the camshaft sensor at Auto Zone and they can also give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done. Good luck and hope this helps. Take's just under 1 1/2 hour to do. You can do it in under 1 hour though if your good with tools.

SOURCE: 2003 VW Golf - O2 Sensor?

Honestly it is not very expensive to replace, but it is not extremely important. What it does is measure the oxygen/fuel level coming out of the engine. This tells the computer that the engine is either using the right air/fuel mixture or allows the computer to change the mixture slightly to allow the car to run properly. You could pull the sensor out and clean the terminal as it usually has alot of carbon build up due to its location, but this is normally a temporary fix. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Invest in a decent 'vagcom' diagnostic reader off eBay! This may help find any problems caused by the cars computer...
Other than that, how old is your golf? And when was the last service

What is the location of the cam position sensor in a 2007 chrysler sebring 2.4 engine?


Usually the crank shaft position sensor is located on the top of the transmission bell housing, on the back side right next to the top of the motor. Do you have a trouble code?

My 1993 VW Golf, will not turn over at all.


run fault codes and check for cam/crank position sensor. Check that the cam shaft is turning ( broken timing belt0 After changing the battery you should use a code reader to reset the CPU as the program may be corrupted and the Immobiliser is stopping it from starting.

Camshaft position sensor correlation bank 1 code


timing belt is off by a tooth or two. you probably didn\'t have to replace the coolant sensor; that code sets whenever the sensor is disconnected and the ignition is turned on; and it needs to be reset by disconnecting the battery or with a code reader. anyway, the crank/ cam sensors are out of sync. if you\'ve got the twin cam engine, they are a royal pain to get the belt to lay properly on the two cams.

96 vw golf p0341 error code


This P0341 code basically means that the powertrain control module (PCM) detected a problem with the camshaft signal. The camshaft position sensor (CPS) sends a specific signal to the PCM for Top Dead Center on the compression stroke as well as signals indicating the position of the cam sensor. This is accomplished through a reluctor wheel attached to the camshaft that passes by the cam sensor. Any time that the signal to the PCM is inconsistent with what the signal should be, this code is set. NOTE: this code can also be set by extended cranking periods.

Symptoms: The car will likely run with this code set, as it is often intermittent and also because the PCM can often operate the vehicle in "limp-in/limp-home" mode even with a cam sensor signal problem. There may be no noticeable symptoms other than:
Poor fuel economy (if engine runs)
Possible no start condition


A code P0341 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Cam sensor wiring routed too close to spark plug wiring (causing interference)
Poor wiring connection at cam sensor
Poor wiring connection at PCM
Bad cam sensor
Damaged reluctor wheel


Possible Solutions: Often relacing the sensor fixes this code, but not necessarily. Therefore it's important to check the following:
Check that the wiring isn't routed too close to any secondary ignition components (coil, spark plug wires, etc.)
Visually inspect the wiring at the sensor for any burn marks, discoloration indicative of melting or chafing
Visually inspect the cam sensor for damage
Visually inspect the reluctor wheel through the cam sensor port (if possible) for any missing teeth or any damage
If reluctor isn't visible from outside the engine, visual test can only be done by removing cam shaft or intake manifold (depending on engine design)
If all checks out okay, then replace the sensor.

2007 Tahoe has check engine light on and can not used the remote starer either. reset codes the remote starter work until check light came back on code said cam sesenr fault car run fine


there are several reasons why the remote start won't work, and one of them is the presence of a check engine light. Normally a check engine light comes on when a trouble code is present and recorded by the engine control module. Resetting or erasing the codes can only bring temporary relief, like what u said the remote start worked again. But the trouble will still come back until the real cause is being addressed. You got code on the cam sensor, but car runs fine. Its because the engine computer senses inconsistencies while trying to improve the Emissions system of your vehicle. That we cannot see or hear. Most probably your cam sensor or the wirings are getting intermittent. Better have it visually inspected and replaced if necessary.

It can mean some points which can be faulty. It can mean that the ECU is totally failed or there us a serious electric failure. And thirdly, the most common thing that can happen is the Throttle Position Sensor which is also called TPS is defective, broken or out of range.
Please check the Car and call a technician who has mastery in repair because this code is serious.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

If the check engine light is on look at the faults. It could be a defective cam sensor, the timing belt might not be in the place, or a defective mass air flow sensor.
