P0343 Chevrolet Description
The Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor sensor works in conjunction with a 1X reluctor wheel on the camshaft. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) provides a 12 volt power supply to the CMP sensor as well as a ground and a signal circuit.
The CMP sensor determines whether a cylinder is on a firing stroke or on an exhaust stroke. As the camshaft rotates, the reluctor wheel interrupts a magnetic field produced by a magnet within the sensor. The sensors internal circuitry detects this and produces a signal which the PCM reads. The PCM uses this 1X signal in combination with the Crankshaft Position sensor 24X signal in order to determine crankshaft position and stroke. This diagnostic for the Camshaft Position sensor tests for a loss of Camshaft Position sensor signal.
Observe that as long as the Crankshaft Position sensor 24X signal is available, the engine will start. The PCM can determine top dead center for all cylinders by using the Crankshaft Position sensor 24X signal alone. The Camshaft Position sensor 1X signal is used by the PCM to determine if the cylinder at top dead center is on the firing stroke, or the exhaust stroke. The system attempts synchronization and looks for an increase in engine speed indicating the engine started. If the PCM does not detect an increase in engine speed, the PCM incorrectly synchronized to the exhaust stroke and will re-sync to the opposite cam position. A slightly longer cranking time may be a symptom of this condition.

Fault codes PO 193 FRP -- PO 101 MAF -- PO 380 -- PO a 09dc/dc -- PO 238 TURBO/ super charger-- PO 118 ECT -- PO 283 fuel temp sensor -- U 2023 brake sensor


101,380 and 118. These together is a no start. Take it to a garage. Just a guess, but I would be looking into the wiring. You waited to long to have a problem fixed. One bad part over time will lead to many codes. The PCM is trying to adjust to make the engine run right. Throwing other sensor out of range. Out of range pops a code.

Po 171, po 305, po 441


Hi, I know from my past experiances the spark plug wires at the boot ends than slide onto the sparkplugs usually over time short out due to the metal tubes that protect the sparkplugs from heat kind of ark across from the metal tube through the plug boot causing an error code. Sometimes in the dark you can actually see them arking at the tube on the engine, and also hear a crackling noise. As to the code for the O2 sensor that's a normal wear and tear item that may need replaced. As all vehicle age over time electrical connections, and things have issues develop and cause havick with sensors and computers in these vehicles too.


As with the 441 code and then the other code for the O2 sensor showing up may mean both O2 sensors are going bad if your system has 2 sensors in the exhaust, usually one before the cat converter and one behind it. A lot of this also is due to what gasoline you use in the vehicle over time. Lower octane gas may be what is causing things to act up.

Code po343 on 2002 ford explorer what part i need replease


You never replace a component based on a trouble code. The codes are to tell the mechanic what to inspect or test.
Code 343 is for a problem with the cam sensor or circuit for bank one. The computer is getting a signal from the sensor that is out of range.

What's your problem? my 2004 mercury monterey has eight codes ,po301,poo53,po106,po316,po300,po304,po305,and po306


PO 300 is multiple misfires detected
PO 301, 304, 305, 306 are misfires in cylinders 1,4,5,&6
PO 053 is HO2S Bank 1 Sensor 1 Heater Resistance
PO 106 is MAP/BARO CKT Range / Perf
PO 316 is Misfire detected 1st 1000 Revs.

On a misfire, I usually push towards the spark plugs, plug wires, and coil packs / distributor coil.
You have PO 106 and PO 053 that need to be inquired about at nearest AutoZone.
They can give you an idea as to what is the problem on these.

Did a MAP sensor **** out and cause all the misfires ?
Did a misfire cause the MAP sensor error?
You see what I'm saying ?...Something caused all the misfires...thinking MAP...but not that familiar with the function of the MAP.

Hope this helps...
