Google your codes & read up

Codes have nothing to do with replacing any parts

You have to component test the system with
the fault codes, to find a problem

If you have no problem or don't know what is wrong
why change parts?

Really need professional tools to look at data, to
help determine what areas need further testing

I would think it would be just the Camshaft Position Sensor.I looked up the codes and they say pretty much the samething.

SOURCE: 2001 Miata check engine light on. [cause is P0012]

The cam angle sensor need to be replace. Once it's cooked it will never the same.

Have to consider moving to synthetic oil (Like Amsoil) or remove the front license plate (please check state regulation first).

=====

I'm using Amsoil Synthetic
10W-30 in summer and 5W-30 in winter

Use 65/35 Amsoil coolant mix ration instead of 50/50

Removing the license plate does help air flow.

Clean junk collect in front of the A/C condenser and radiator.

Check radiator cap's plastic gasket.
Get a Rad-Cap

Check/Clean the ECU contacts with CRC electronic part cleaner,

@ 85,000+ miles be prepare for timing belt + water pump change.

Clean / change temp sensor ///// monitor electric fan for operation.


Cam sensor can not be overheated.

<230 F is ideal

I listed everything that can keep the motor cool.



Please rate my answer if it's helpful to you.

SOURCE: 3.5l engine, car shakes

the chances are good for the number 5 coil needing replacement, but before i did anything else i would change that cam sensor, that could be causing your problem all the way around.. hope this helps... setting timing is a big drawn out job, i dont think you will need to do that, timing shouldnt be out.

Code p0012


P0012 is a cam shaft error code.



Positioning over retarded bank 1.



You may be looking at a cam shaft sensor replacement, a wiring issue. Or worse, a mechanical fault.



I suggest getting the vehicle to a garage as soon as you can.

My 2002 pt cruiser died while I was driving first the oil light came on then it just died! I just had the oil changed 3 days prior to it dying some of the codes I received were 0340 1684 1685...


P0340 is cam position sensor. P1685 is for the key(has a chip in it) P1684 is battery has been disconnected. If the engine will still crank then codes P1684 & P1685 are probably old codes. So if the car will still crank, lets forget about those codes and focus on P0340 A bad cam position sensor will cause the engine to die and not allow it to start back up. Replace the cam position sensor and clear the code and the car should start up.

Passat 2001 with codes P0012,P0340 it runs fine the turbo kicks in no problem I originally found some broken vaccum line and replaced them but the codes still return


P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Trouble
Your cam timing timing is off and the sensor is fine. They are very simple sensors...it's just a magnet...and magnets don't go bad. Check the timing. Incorrect allocation means that the camshaft isnt where the computor thinks it should be at any given time. This could be casued by the base engine timing being off by a tooth or by a problem in the camshaft adjuster.


P0012 Camshaft A: Advance Setpoint not Reached
The code P0012 can be set by the following concerns: Faulty cam adjuster, Faulty cam adjuster solenoid, Low oil pressure, Sludged oil passages and Sticky camshaft.

The variable cam timing uses engine oil pressure diverted to the adjuster mechanism by a solenoid duty cycled by the PCM. Low oil pressure or severe oil sludging can affect camshaft timing operation. Always check oil level and condition when camshaft adjustment codes are present.

Using a full function Volkswagen compatible scan tool enter address word 01 (Engine). Function 08 (Read Measuring Value Blocks) and Display Group 091 (Power Enhancement Camshaft Adjustment).

Observe the 4th display field "Active Camshaft Adjustment Angle" With the engine at idle. The 4th display field should read between -3.0 to +6.0 degrees KW if the camshaft is in the normal unadvanced position. Any other reading at idle indicates that the camshaft is shifted from the normal unadvanced position

Accelerate the vehicle from a standstill in 1st gear using wide-open throttle and observe the display in field 4 again. Under heavy acceleration the display should read between +16.0 to +25.0 degrees KW. This indicates that the camshaft has shifted to the full advance position.

If the display in field 4 does not change from the values in test step 2 or if the display changes but does not reach a minimum of +16.0 degrees KW (i.e. between +6.0 and +16.0 degrees KW), the camshaft timing adjuster mechanism is not advancing the camshaft.

Failure to advance the camshaft could be caused by a faulty cam adjuster, a faulty cam adjuster solenoid, low oil pressure, sludged oil passages, or a sticky camshaft.


Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer and leave ue some testimonial comment)

I have a diagnostic code 340 and 320 on a 1997 Jeep Cherokee. What might the problem be?


DTC P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
Symptoms can include:
  • Hard starting or no start
  • Rough running / misfiring
  • Loss of engine power
Causes: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

Possible Solutions: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

DTC P0320 also have with this wrong.
