Question about 2000 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Timing belt diagram

I changed the timing belt after the car completely stopped. It had a code p0340. It appeared to me that the belt had slipped a cog. After replacement it still doesn't work. I have replaced this once two years ago without special tools but couldn't find the instructions on how to replace the belt this time. I went from memory and it still doesn't work. I think that it is not perfectly aligned.

The Timing Belt? Yeah get a repair manual that is model specific and re do it it has to be perfect. absoutly perfect or it won't run right ever. In fact, you could damage the motor if the timing belt is off you will slam the internal engine parts into each other.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Yes, you can drive the car to the shop without fear of any internal engine damage.

Your engine is not an "interference' engine; your valves will not be damaged if the belt slips a tooth or two. In fact, any Toyota engine with a timing belt is a non-interference engine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Dealer just replaced timing belt and water pump and check eng light is on codes are p0345 and p0340 how bad is this and how far can I drive it

P0345 and P0340 are "Camshaft Position Sensor" problems. Hopefully it is only a wire or sensor bad, and not a camshaft improperly lined up when the belt was changed.
Go back to dealer to have the problem fixed. If the motor runs smoothly, it should be okay to drive to the dealer. The mechanic might have left a sensor wire disconnected.

I have the code p0340 for slip n tcs is telling me is a sensor but it show2

I am not sure what "slip n tcs" means but on the 2005 nissan maxima the code P0340 is for the camshaft position sensor circit on bank 1, which is in the rear of the engine compartment. Code P0345 is for camshaft position on bank 2, which is in the front of the engine compartment. The images show the Cyl banks and a cam sensor.6_29_2012_3_38_07_am.gif6_29_2012_3_40_48_am.gif

I replaced the camshaft position sensor P0340, now the OBD is reading a PO0016

Causes that bring up code P0016 may include:
  • Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
  • Misalignment of timing belt/chain
  • Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
  • Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
  • Bad crank sensor
  • Bad cam sensor
  • Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
  • Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
  1. First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
  2. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
  3. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck.
Hope this helps

P0340 - Cam Timing

of a mistimed camshaft system (all must apply):
  1. Camshafts have previously been removed from the engine.
  2. Engine runs rough.
  3. Vehicle sets P0340 (camshaft sensor code).
  4. Camshaft sensor has been checked with a known, properly operating camshaft sensor.

The diagram in the manuals should show the timing marks on both cam gears to be on the blue timing chain links.

P0340 code. I Changed cam sensor and checked wiring. what else could be wrong? Jeep cherokee, 6 cil

A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

•a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
•the camshaft position sensor may have failed
•the PCM may have failed
•there exists an open circuit
•the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:

•Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
•Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
•Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
•Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
•Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
•Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
•Diagnose/replace the PCM as required
