On the drivers side of the head. Should be a 2 or 4 bolt sensor, with the plug at the bottom. Not a whole lot of room to get to it, but fairly easy.

Where is the camshaft sensor in a 2000 dodge intrepid 2.7 engine


The camshaft position sensor is mounted to the top of the timing case cover. The bottom of the sensor is positioned above the camshaft sprocket. The distance between the bottom of sensor and the camshaft sprocket is critical to the operation of the system.

How do I replace the CAM sensor on a 1996 dodge neon?


Hi, my name is John I will do my best to assist you.

To Remove
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the filtered air tube from the throttle body and air cleaner housing.
  3. For SOHC engines, remove the air cleaner inlet tube.
  4. For SOHC engines, detach the electrical connectors from the engine coolant sensor and the camshaft position sensor.
  5. For DOHC engines, unplug the electrical connector from the camshaft position sensor.
  6. For SOHC engines, remove the brake booster hose and the electrical connectors form the holders on the end of the cylinder head cover.
  7. Unfasten the camshaft position sensor mounting screws, then remove the sensor.
  8. Loosen the screw/bolt attaching the target magnet to the rear of the camshaft.
To Install: NOTE: The target magnet has 2 locating dowels which fit into the machined locating holes in the end of the camshaft.

  1. Install the target magnet in the end of the camshaft. Tighten the retainer to 30 inch lbs. (3.4 Nm).
  2. Install the camshaft position sensor. Tighten the sensor mounting screws to 80 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
  3. For SOHC engines, place the brake booster hose and the electrical harness in the holders on the end of the valve cover.
  4. Attach the electrical connector(s) to the camshaft position sensor and coolant temperature sensor (if necessary).
  5. Install the air cleaner inlet tube and the filtered air tube.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.

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

My 2004 dodge neon sxt is giving me a p0340 code how do i fix this


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

Hope this is for any assistance.

For what sensor is the code po340 on a dodge neon 04 and how i change.


Hi,
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.

Cam Shaft Sensor Problems


Had the same problem before on my 04 Neon SXT...camshaft sensor is on left side of engine block, take out the battery and to the left of it (face car) is the camshaft position sensor. To change it you'll have to move a few hoses but its plan to see there on the left side of the engine...pretty easy remove and replace. Fixed my problem of car not going above 2k RPM when i replaced the sensor.
