The code is for a cam shaft position sensor. you would need to run some tests to see if it's a sensor problem or a wiring problem.

SOURCE: car won,t start sometimes & check engine light

before changing any more parts there are grounds on the engine that need cleaned one on the back of intake manifold then you have to remove battery tray clean up the ground there then clean where the tray bolts up as this aids in chassis grounding remove ground cable from bellhousing before you reassemble install star washers btween cable ends and where they bolt up this will dig into ground surface and cables making a better ground then remove turn signals in front there are two on right side and one on left side cleanup and star washer then there is the ground spots for the ecm inside removr kick panel on right side clean up and star washer if the starter doesnt work after this starter is probably bad but the other codes will probably clear out

Computer code P0340


OK. It sounds like you have an issue with the wire harness. Disconnect the sensor and with a multi meter check for voltage on the wires. You should get up to 4 volts. DO NOT TOUCH WIRES WITH A TEST LIGHT. This will fry the computer. follow the wire harness throughout the car looking for a damaged ares and repair it.

Will not accelerate


Check to see what the codes are. This will give some valuable insight as to what the problem may be. Codes can be retrieved with a code reader. Inexpensive ones (about $50) can be purchased just about anywhere you can buy parts or tools. once you have those codes (should start with a "P" followed by four numbers (example, P0340) post them here and ill be happy to help.

While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur


Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

04 dodge neon showing P0325 and P0340 codes at same time.


Code 0325 is for a Knock sensor. Code 0340 is for the Cam sensor #1 if this is an engine with 2 heads and it is an indication of a single sensor on single head engines.

So if you do have a multiple hed engine, you may have removed the good sensor and left the bad sensor in the other head.

Remember to wipe the computer memory after installing new parts.

P0340 is for camshaft position sensor circuit malfunction so the problem can be in you hav already changed sensor, then you need to check wiring from sensor to ecu and if the wires are ok than check the ecu! It can be either of them cousing the problem.

Check Engine Light, Code p0340, triggered by other accessories?


its probably just grounded wires.. check your car's wiring.. if you can't do that yourself. Have an electrician/mechanic check it for you..
