Question about 2004 Dodge Dakota
I have two codes that pop up. p0344 & p0340. the truck runs ok but bugs down on exl, the check engine light some times goes off and the truck runs great. why ??
First check the easy thing. Have your battery tested. Sensors very sensitive to failing battery. If the battery tests fine then you will need to change the Cam sensor probably a $30 part. On your truck remove the air filter housing & the cam sensor should be easily accessible at the front of the cyl head. Hope this works for you. Based on your P codes it should.

It means that it didn't receive a signal from the transmision module.
Have your transmission control module checked.
To reset your engine codes:
Remove the negative terminal of your battery (10mm wrench).
Turn your ignition key to START and hold it there for about 15 seconds.
Turn your ignition key to OFF and remove it.
Connect the negative terminal of your battery.
TCM (Trans control Module)
(electronic transmission control module)

if the code said it was running rich then your fuel injectors could be dripping fuel into one of the cylinders. try cleaning your injectors. if that dont work then it could be one of your EGR valves, check for that. and check for fuel filter. One of those has to be the problem. most likely its one of your EGR valves. check it out!

it might be the cam shaft sensor it might be the crank shaft sensor the best thing to do is replace them bolth. but it does sound like it may be either one because if one goes out the other will still work but when starting the car it will take longer for it to read from either or the one sensor that is still working because they work together to tell the system to deliver the gas. im pretty positive that it is either the cam or crank shaft sensor
