The cam sensor is usually located at the front, on the end of a cam shaft. You may also want to change the crank position sensor. BUT.......check the timing belt first, make sure it is still intact. I'm not sure if they still used the Mitsubishi engine in 03, but check your cap too. The distributor cap also (I think...) has a pick up and a silver disc under the cap. The Mitsubishi engine, they went bad frequently.

SOURCE: Cam Shaft Sensor Problems

Had the same problem before on my 04 Neon SXT...camshaft sensor is on left side of engine block, take out the battery and to the left of it (face car) is the camshaft position sensor. To change it you'll have to move a few hoses but its plan to see there on the left side of the engine...pretty easy remove and replace. Fixed my problem of car not going above 2k RPM when i replaced the sensor.

SOURCE: Camshaft sensor location

The cam sensor on the 4.7 is located toward the forward edge of the right cylinder head (passenger side). This has a 3 wire connector, tan/with yellow tracer is sensor signal, black / light blue tracer wire is sensor ground and the orange is the 5V supply.

SOURCE: need help finding camshaft position sensor

2.0L 2.4L Removal The camshaft position sensor is mounted to the rear of the cylinder head.

Remove the negative battery cable. Disconnect the PCV hose and reposition Disconnect electrical connectors from the camshaft position sensor. Remove camshaft position sensor mounting screws. Remove sensor.Loosen screw attaching target magnet to rear of camshaft and remove magnet.
Instalation The target magnet has locating dowels that fit into machined locating holes in the end of the camshaft.
- Install target magnet in end of camshaft. Tighten mounting screw to 3 Nm (30 in. lbs.) torque. Over torqueing could cause cracks in magnet. If magnet cracks replace it.
- Install camshaft position sensor. Tighten sensor mounting screws to 12.9 Nm (115 in. lbs.) torque.
- Carefully attach electrical connector to camshaft position sensor. Installation at an angle may damage the sensor pins. - Connect the PCV Valve hose. - Connect the negative battery cable.
2.7L V6 Removal
The camshaft position sensor is mounted in the front of the head.

Disconnect electrical connector from sensor. Remove camshaft position sensor screw.
CAM Sensor Location 2.7L
Without pulling on the connector, pull the sensor out of the chain case cover.

Installation - Install sensor in the chain case cover and push sensor in until contact is made with the boss on the head. While holding the sensor in this position,install and tighten the retaining bolt to 12 Nm (105 in. lbs.) torque.
- Attach electrical connector to sensor.

Good luck and hope this helps

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 !

2005 dodge stratus SXT 2.4l DOHC died in traffic and won't start


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 (P0340) is being caused by a broken timing belt.
(If the cam does not turn, the cam sensor does not produce a signal, and the computer has a problem with that).

After having my 06 dodge stratus checked out. 6 codes showed up. I don't want to just start throwing parts on without knowing the real reason for the problem. The car drives fine and then just...


Let's start with the codes.

Po129 refers to barosensor

Po344 is a code for the camshaft position sensor

Po339 crankshaft position sensor

Po340 camshaft position circuit malfunction

Po335 crankshaft POS sensor malfunction

Po122 throttle pedal position

Item 2,3,4,5 relate to each other that s camshaft and crankshaft position sensors. Since both already show a malfunction code, it would be advisable to change.

Sometimes other codes show up because there is a relation but not that the item is bad.

A 2004 Dodge stratus with the 4 cylinder that will not start


code p 16 refers to crankshaft position/cam shaft position bank 1 sensor A--correlation====causes ---wiring---CKP sensor ( crankshaft position sensor )---mechanical fault

code p 0340 refers to -camshaft (CMP) sensor A bank 1 circuit malfunction ===causes wiring--CMP sensor--ECM
cosrs nothing to check the timing belt , just remove the oil filler cap and see if the rockers are moving when turning it over
the clue here may be bewteen the 2 codes , the word correlation and circuit malfunction so check the wiring, harness connections for pin corrosion and then substitute the ECM with a know good unit as the correlarion and circuit malfunction could be in the ECM
if the ECM program is not getting good reports for both sensors then it reasons that the piston and cam shaft are not timed properly and so will not allow it to start

98 dodge stratus,engine light came on and it died and won't start now.What could be wrong?


when you crank the engine over now, does it sound different than before? if yes, you probably have a broken timing belt. it is also common for the cam gear to slip out of position from the cam and cause an incorrect, but hard to diagnose, timing issue. other no start with check engine light on issues could be a faulty cam or crank sensor.

pull the codes from the vehicles computer. if there is a cam or crank sensor code, or if there is a code that says in some different wording "cam sensor signal does not match crank sensor singal", first check crankshaft to camshaft timing. if belt is ok and timing marks line up then i strongly suggest removing the bolt from the camshaft that holds the cam gear on. with the bolt and cam gear removed you should be able to tell if the cam gear has rotated on the camshaft. there should be a small pin sticking out of the camshaft. if it is broken off then you need to replace the camshaft. if the pin is still there and the timing is good then replace iether the cam or crank sensor depending on what code you have stored in the ecu memory. if the code is not for the cam/crank sensor then google search the code number e.g. "p0502" and your make and model.
