2005 Dodge Neon: Hard codes say it is the camshaft now what do i do?

Posted by on

  • submergeme1 Apr 23, 2009

    WOW thanks so much!!!!!
    I hope this works, My car at times turns over but takes a few seconds to actually start. Hard to explain I know. And then when driving it seems to not want to shift gears so i lay off the gas and you can then feel it shift. And at times when on the interstate I can not go over 55 miles an hour it really starts to sputter? Do you know if the camshaft sensor could be causing all of this? And is it hurting the engine more when I am driving it?

Do you have error code? This is a good bet. It sounds like some of the symptoms of a bad cam sensor.

Your going to have to replace the camshaft sensor, the sensor may be going bad or the wire where it comes over the rear of the engine may be chaffing at the valve cover causing the lose of the signal to the ECM. 
I believe the Camshaft sensor is on the left side of the engine at the back of the cylinder head.
Good luck and hope this helps, it takes about 30 to replace with simple tools.

    It's all related, but have the car scaned at Auto Zone to make sure there are no other codes. The Crankshaft Sensor does the samething too.


    I believe Auto Zone will scan for free and can give the how to remove and install the new parts need. As for hurting the engine, yes it could. When you go over 55 MPH as you mentioned the engine starts to sputter, that my friend is DETONATION. 


    Good luck and hope this helps

SOURCE: locating and replacing a camshaft sensor in a 2005 dodge neon

this is a very very simple procedure. you do not need pics. there is a sensor located at the end of the engine on the far side from the belts. at the top. it has a plug with two wires in it. just remove the two 10mm bolts un hook the plug and reverse the process to reinstall. if you have a factory intake you may have to remove it to access this sensor. just the intake tube.

Where Do I start with a P0016 code on my 2005 Dodge neon (2.0L)


P0016-CRANKSHAFT/CAMSHAFT TIMING MISALIGNMENT
Does the car run? If it doesnt run it may have slipped time.If it does run, use a scope if available and check for a weak or erratic signal from the cam and crank sensors. The cam sensors routinely go out on these cars but a bad crank sensor can cause the code also.

Where is the cam sensor on a 2005 dodge neon sxt 2.0


Camshaft Position Sensor-On top of engine Operation The Engine Management System (EMS) uses the camshaft position sensor to manage sequential fuel injection and as part of misfire diagnosis. The EMS constantly monitors the number of pulses on the signal circuit. The EMS compares the number of camshaft sensor reference pulses and the number of crankshaft position sensor reference pulses received. If the EMS receives an incorrect number of pulses, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) should be stored in the EMS. Some engine management systems will then default to multi-port or "gang-fire" injector operation. The camshaft position sensor signal is required to sequence the injector operation to the proper cylinder timing. If the camshaft position sensor or circuit is faulty, most engines will start. However, the EMS misfire diagnostic will likely be affected.
The following symptoms can be caused by an intermittent wiring connections or faulty signal to the EMS.
Related Symptoms
  • Extended crank time with a cold engine
  • Intermittent rough running
  • Unstable idle
  • Bucking
  • Hesitation
  • Stumble
  • Chuggle
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Stalling on acceleration

How do i change a cam sensor on a 2005 dodge neon?


The camshaft position sensor on the 2.0L is located on the rear of the cylinder head and bolted in place. It's been a while since I had one off but I believe you have to line up a dowel on the sensor with another piece [magnet] that is driven by the camshaft. Not to hard to do, just note how all the pieces come apart and make sure everything goes smoothly back together. Don't force anything. Sometimes the old sensor will show some wear from the cam pushing against it which is normal. I haven't done one on a 1.6L however so I can't help there any.

CODE PO 340 SENSOR CIRCUIT CAMSHAFT 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.I hope this helps you
