Where is cam shaft sensor located on a 08 saturn aura


Which engine ? This vehicle had option of six different engines , 2.4 , 3.5 , 2.8 , 3.0 , 3.2 , 3.6 And are you picking on the right part ? What code > DTC P0010: Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator Solenoid Control Circuit

DTC P0013: Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator Solenoid Control Circuit
It may not even be a cam sensor problem !
DTC P0340: Intake CMP Sensor Circuit

DTC P0365: Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit
DTC P0341: Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Performance

DTC P0366: Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Performance
Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator System
The camshaft position (CMP) actuator system is an electro-hydraulic operated device used for a variety of engine performance and operational enhancements. These enhancements include lower emission output through exhaust gas dilution of the intake charge in the combustion chamber, a broader engine torque range, and improved fuel economy. The CMP actuator system accomplishes this by changing the angle or timing of the camshaft relative to the crankshaft position. The CMP actuator simply allows earlier or later intake and exhaust valve opening during the four stroke engine cycle. The CMP actuator cannot vary the duration of valve opening, or the valve lift.
During engine OFF, engine idling conditions, and engine shutdown, the camshaft actuator is held in the Park position. Internal to the CMP actuator assembly is a return spring and a locking pin. During non-phasing modes of the camshaft, the return spring rotates the camshaft back to the Park position, and the locking pin retains the CMP actuator sprocket to the camshaft

How do you know when your cam shaft sensors are bad?


That depends on the vehicle make , model an year ! The check engine light may come on an set a DTC for cam sensor , it may not start an run ! Cam sensors are usually used to tell the PCM that #1 cylinder is at top dead center on compression stroke for fuel injector control !
Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor
The sensor detects magnetic flux changes between the four narrow and wide tooth slots on the reluctor wheel. The camshaft position (CMP) sensor provides a digital ON/OFF DC voltage of varying frequency per each camshaft revolution. The ECM will recognize the narrow and wide tooth patterns to identify camshaft position, or which cylinder is in compression and which is in exhaust. The information is then used to determine the correct time and sequence for fuel injection and ignition spark events.
What type problem are you having ?

I changed out the MAP sensor,and the idle air sensor on my 2006 Ford Taurus. This was before I had the fault code read at a dealer. Code came back as P0340, and P0430 Band 2 cat worn out. I had the cam...


P0340 FORD - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 1Possible causes- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
- Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty starter motor
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery
P0340 FORD Description The Camshaft Position Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Engine Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The camshaft position sensor senses the retraction of camshaft (intake) to identify a particular cylinder. The camshaft position sensor senses the piston position. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor.

When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.

When the crankshaft position sensor (POS) system becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides various controls of engine parts instead, utilizing timing of cylinder identification signals.

2003 vibe will not start


Do you know what Camshaft Actuator System is ?
The standard compression pressure is 1,400 kPa (203 psi).
The camshaft position (CMP) actuator system enables the powertrain control module (PCM) to change camshaft timing while the engine is running. The CMP actuator assembly (5) varies camshaft position in response to directional changes in oil pressure. The CMP actuator solenoid valve controls the oil pressure that is applied to advance or retard the camshaft. Modifying camshaft timing under changing engine demand provides better balance between the following performance concerns:
• Engine power output
• Fuel economy
• Lower tailpipe emissions
The CMP actuator solenoid valve (3) is controlled by the PCM. The crankshaft position (CKP) sensor (4) and the CMP sensor (1) are used to monitor changes in camshaft position. The PCM uses information from the following sensors in order to calculate the desired camshaft position:
• The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor
• The mass air flow (MAF) sensor
• The throttle position (TP) sensor
• The vehicle speed sensor (VSS)

This mite be something to look at , Is cam timing advanced or retarded . The ) CMP Actuator Assembly !

I have a 2003 chevy malibu with 90,000 miles. i took it in for maintenance and the mechanic said that it was showing trouble code p0341. he said it was the cam sensor. yesterday when i went to start it, it...


if the cam sensor is bad, it will definitely not start. The cam shaft position sensor's function is: the engine speed and crankshaft position information is supplied frome a sensor which is usually situated at the front or rear of the crankshaft. note that distributor-located engine speed sensor are generally being replaced with crank shaft-located sensors,as worn disributor drives and associated components can effect the accuracy of the engine speed signal.

A camshaft position sensor,or cylinder identification sensor is used to determin the engine cycle position the information is used to provide individual cylinder ignition and injection cotrol.Many engine mangement systems use an inductive type of sensor that is located near the camshaft;when the camshaft rotates a single signal is passed to the ECU to indicate a reference point in the engine cycle

I get a code 0340 on my 05 PT Crusier. Just started running real bad. step on gas and wants to stall like not getting gas. Can you help? Rc


p0340 is camshaft position sensor A-bank 1 curcuit malfunction, Its very likely you need a new cam sensor. check wiring also, the cam sensor is not expensive.

Replacing a camshaft position sensor on a 1998 cutlass


The cam sensor is integrated with the crank shaft sensor behind the crank shaft pulley. The 3.1 runs 2 crank sensors. the one behind the crankshaft pulley in integrated to act as a cam sensor. It has 2 sets on rings for that sensor, 1 is in use accustomed for the fuel timing
Good luck and hope this helps friend.
