SOURCE: where is locate the camshaft position sensor on

The camshaft position sensor is located inside the distributor. It is a hall effect swich, simply remove the distributor cap and the rotor and you can lift it out, unplug and replace.
Have fun but beware a bad crankshaft position sensor can cause a false cam sensor code to be set sometimes.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Bad throttle position sensor

TPS is right on the throttle body The shaft that operates the inlet butterfly passes through it. There are two torx screws holding it on. There is no adjustment so it is a bolt on item. (think it's about $50)

If you still have a cap rotor and ignition wires, it's inside the distributor. If not, it is the part where the distributor used to be (center rear of the engine behind the intake manifold)

Where is 2003 ford focus camshafts position sensor


Camshaft Position Sensor
The camshaft position (CMP) sensor detects the position of the camshaft. The CMP sensor identifies when piston No. 1 is on its compression stroke. A signal is then sent to the powertrain control module (PCM) and used for synchronizing the firing of sequential fuel injectors. The Coil On Plug (COP) Ignition applications also use the CMP signal to select the proper ignition coil to fire. The input circuit to the PCM is referred to as the CMP input or circuit.
There are two types of CMP sensors: the three pin connector Hall-effect type sensor (Figure 25) and the two pin connector variable reluctance sensor

P0340 FORD - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 1Possible causes- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
- Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty starter motor
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery
P0340 FORD Description The Camshaft Position Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Engine Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The camshaft position sensor senses the retraction of camshaft (intake) to identify a particular cylinder. The camshaft position sensor senses the piston position. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor.

When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.

When the crankshaft position sensor (POS) system becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides various controls of engine parts instead, utilizing timing of cylinder identification signals.

On my 2006 f150 ford what the purpose of a cam aensor and how to tell if it bad


Hi there:
The camshaft sensor is located in the hood, beside the engine. However, it isn't always easy to find it. This is because the exact position of the camshaft sensor depends on the car brand. That said; whichever the car, you'll find the camshaft sensor in either one of three locations: by the side of the engine block, behind the cylinder head, or in the car's lifter valley.


The camshaft sensor is a small, but significant, magnetic device. It gathers and sends information about the car's camshaft speed (and as a result the position of each piston) to the car's electronic control module. This information is received by the computer, which then uses this data to further calculate the time of ignition and the timing of fuel injection required by the engine. This information is vital for engine function.


At times, either due to accidents or due to wear and tear, the camshaft sensor can weaken. In the case of a camshaft sensor failure, the weak or disrupted signal is interpreted by the computer as a problem, and this affects the proper running of the vehicle. A failing camshaft sensor can be identified based on any one of the 3 following symptoms.


1. "Check Engine" Light
The first symptom of a failing camshaft sensor manifests as a warning from the car's control module. As the camshaft sensor fails, the computer sends the driver a warning sign via the "check engine" light on the cars dashboard. When the check engine light first comes on, the driver has enough time to service the car and replace all faulty parts, including the failing camshaft sensor. However, if you ignore this flashing light for a considerable time, it could later lead to severe engine trouble.


2. Disrupted Driving
Another symptom of a failing camshaft sensor is experiencing constant disruption while driving. If you are experiencing symptoms like frequent stalling, poor idling of the car at 500 to 600 rpms, a massive drop in the rpms slowing down the car to a crawl, a noticeable drop in engine power, poor mileage, abnormal acceleration activity, frequent stumbling, etc., it probably means you have a failing camshaft sensor that needs immediate attention. If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is best to seek a mechanic before the situation gets worse and the car gives up, refusing to start at all.


3. Ignition Trouble
If you ignore all of the above symptoms, you end up with one that really can't be ignored-no ignition. Remember, as the sensor begins to weaken, so does the signal it transmits to the cars computerized control station. If you let the problem carry on for too long, the engine will suffer from a "no spark" situation. Once the signal switches off, so will your engine, thereby stranding you. Thus, it is best not to let your car get to this stage.

if the cam sensor is bad, it will definitely not start. The cam shaft position sensor's function is: the engine speed and crankshaft position information is supplied frome a sensor which is usually situated at the front or rear of the crankshaft. note that distributor-located engine speed sensor are generally being replaced with crank shaft-located sensors,as worn disributor drives and associated components can effect the accuracy of the engine speed signal.

A camshaft position sensor,or cylinder identification sensor is used to determin the engine cycle position the information is used to provide individual cylinder ignition and injection cotrol.Many engine mangement systems use an inductive type of sensor that is located near the camshaft;when the camshaft rotates a single signal is passed to the ECU to indicate a reference point in the engine cycle

I keep getting a code P0340.Chrysler has reprogrammed the PCM for a long start issue.I cant seem to get anywhere with it.


P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.

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


Hope helps.

I need to know where to check the cam sensor at? and where its located?


the "camshaft position sensor" in your case is located inside the distributer .. if its bad your cars computer will have flagged it with an error code .. many auto parts stores will read the computer free .. unfortunatly the camshaft position sensor is part of the distributer .. so you probably have to replace the whole thing .. check the wiring and connectors going to the distributor to make sure they are not damaged .. now there is a crankshaft position sensor as well that can cause similar problems .. check the pcv valve to make sure its working properly .. it can cause some stange problems if it sticks ..

2002 saturn sl1 camshaft position sensor


I hate to tell you this, but there is not Camshaft Position Sensor on any 1.9L Single or Dual OHC. I assume you had someone read a Diagnostic Trouble Code from your PCM. They probably told you that you needed a Camshaft Position Sensor, and then offered to sell you one. I would recommend changing your spark plugs and your plug cables with FACTORY REPLACEMENTS. This will usually make the DTC go away. Aftermarket plugs and wires rarely work well for this engine. If you are looking for a CRANKSHAFT position sensor, look between the engine and transmission on the back side of the transmission. It is also known as the "transmission input speed sensor". More often than not though, your engine will not fire up if the Crank position sensor is not working. Hope this helps.
