I would think it would be just the Camshaft Position Sensor.I looked up the codes and they say pretty much the samething.

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:

SOURCE: 2001 ford windstar code P0340 cam shaft sensor malfunction

You most likely have a 3.8 liter motor. You need to have a obd-2 diagnostic performed. Pep boys, Autozone, Aamco etc. can do this. (Ford also, but costly). If cam sensor failing, code will be stored in e.c.m, and data stream will prove out. The cam sensor failure is common on fords and they are usally available aftermarket (save a few dollars over O.E.M.) . If there is another problem, the diagnostic will help determine. Windstars are also prone to fuel pump failures and ignition switch problems.

SOURCE: most common cause for code P0340 of 95 Ranger

Hi, the cam shaft sensor will be located Under the hood, center, upper engine area, mounted behind rear of intake manifold, in the engine block.


This is a magnetic or hall effect sensor. It sends a signal to the computer relaying information about shaft speed, position and acceleration or deceleration. This information determines when the fuel/air mixture needs to be ignited and how much mixture is needed for the engine.

The possible causes of failure will be faulty housing or faulty wires as well. A faulty ECM could trigger a false alarm as well. this is highly unlikely but, possible in most cases. The most reported reasons is flat out sensor failure.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Taurus - won't start. Cranks really good

George,
Lots of possible choices... but junk yard coil as a replacement (easy for you to do) can eliminate that potential problem for just a few dollars.

If that fails, have a friend help you confirm that you have spark - by pulling a plug wire and holding it against (near) a good ground. If it sparks over 1/2 inch - it is not spark.

If that fails, pull a plug wire off a spark plug. Crank the engine for 10-15 seconds. Now remove and inspect the plug for gas wetness. If wet, it is not fuel flow.

If that fails, it could be timing, timing belt, or a large number of other issues - most cheap to fix but time consuming to locate.

Do the above tests then come back and let us know what you find!!

Replaced cam shaft sensor on 2005 ford taurus and still get code p0340. Possible fix distributor? According to AutoZone computer suggested parts.


This means the sensor isn't working. That can be caused by a bad connector or broken wire.
Check the connections to the camshaft sensor. don-ohio (:^)

98 Taurus P0340 code still present after replacing camshaft sensor and synchronizer. Car not starting all the time. I do not see the spark when car will not start. Then replaced the crank sensor. Still...


all ways turn the motor over a few times and recheck timing marks a slack belt can put it a tooth out, if the code is back it means the fault is still there, did they remove the code and test drive if so the fault is not fixed.

Have a 99 taurus 3.0 ohc had a P0340 code changed sensor and synonizer used tool to locate when installing put motor at TDC first now next day get P1309 Do i need to redu complete process again?


I would recheck your setting as this can be generated if the Cam Sensor is not quite in synch. This is a very common code to appear post Cam Position Sensor replacement.

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.
