That code is for a knock sensor. You said you replace the camshaft sensor.

That code P0344 doesn't mean to replace the cam sensor . It means you do the diagnstic's for that code . Could be a wiring issue , or the computer could be bad . Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop .

Neon Code P0344


I believe that the splice for the cam sensor is about 8 inches back in the harness. Power to the cam supplies several sensors. I have fixed a few that the splice was bad, There is very little room to work in to get to the splice, but it's not impossible to fix.

2004 Stratus 2.7l bucks above 2000rpm runs fine below 2000rpm. MIL P0344 is set, changed sensor reset code and it came back, unplugged sensor and tried starting the car. The car started after 8 seconds and...


Did you check your camshaft position sensor circuits to see if they were working correctly or test the sensor itself before going out and replacing the sensor?....Didn't think so....

Lesson learned here? Diagnostic Test Codes (DTCs) DO NOT tell you what parts to replace. They only tell you which systems or circuits in your vehicle are not working as they should be. Then it is up to the person diagnosing the car to determine what is actually CAUSING the system or circuit to malfunction......Of coarse, this requires that you must first understand how the system is supposed to work...

Anyway, with some proper diagnosis, I think you will probably find that your cam sensor code (P0344) is being caused by a timing belt that has skipped a tooth (most likely).

Bad wires or connectors in the wiring harness that is losing contact at times can also cause that code. This can be verified by watching the cam sensor signal to the PCM with a lab scope and wiggle-testing the wiring harness to see if the signal drops out.

The cam/crank sync needs to be checked with a scan tool. If the sync PID is switching back and forth between YES and NO, then it is most likely a skipped timing belt. This is usually CAUSED by a bad timing belt tentioner pulley assembly.

Yup! they DO tend to buck a little when the valve timing is not correct!

Need to know what dodge codes P0325, P0344 & P0340 mean


0325 knock sensor
0344 cam position sensor intermittent
0340 cam position sensor failure

I would replace the cam position sensor from the codes you provided. The knock sensor
would most likely be related to the sensor failure.

P0344-Camshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Intermittent Bank 1, what is the cost to fix this?


I have just replaced one myself. The part is very easy to get to. its on the engine towards the top. All you have to remove is the air filter box and move one large hose out of the way. There is only (2) 8mm bolts holding it in place. They do need to be torqued to 155 IN-LBS though when you replace it. Sadly, after I replaced mine and cleared the codes, the same P0344 code comes right back. The intermitten one this time. I was told to check the wires for a short on the cam sensor I replaced and the crank sensor as well. The camshaft position sensor was only $37 at Autozone. Shop around though. I was quoted up to $70 for it. I saw online that some people had problems with aftermarket ones and only got theirs to work after installing a genuine one from the dealer. I havent called them but am guessing it will run close to the $70 range from them. Good luck with yours. Check this site to see how to change it, it helped me a great deal.www.ptcruizer.com/cam-sensor-repair.html Its basicly step by step with pics.
