Question about 2004 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

My 2004 oldsmobile alero with the 2.2 engine is showing an error code for camshaft position sensor. The problem is that no one sells this part for this specific engine and i was told it doesnt use a cam position sensor at all. Still have this error code to deal with though. Some one help me out!!

    All i see down there is one on the back side of the engine and one just on the front side of the engine about an inch from a pulley that is obviosly on the side of the engine. They dont sell this part at Auto Zone or OReilly Auto where i live. Maybe a dealership will be my only bet.

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.

Camshaft position sensor


Symptoms can include:
  • Hard starting or no start
  • Rough running / misfiring
  • Loss of engine power

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

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

Took vehicle for diagnostics & no codes showed up but check engine light stays on. Also the Lok Trac light stays on. This is a 2004 Alero


If the engine light is on there's a code store in your computer, hope they did not charge you, take it to another repair shop, or to Autozone they will do a code reading for free, but don't buy any thing as this is just a selling thing, take the trouble code to a repair shop and see what they say.
