No it means there's a problem with the cam sensor. Replace it.

Car cuts out whiles driving and does not start for a while

im pretty sure if you have someone check the engine computer for fault codes youll find either a po335,po725 or po340.these relate to failures with your crankshaft and camshaft position sensors.relatively inexpensive fix at the outset 250.00 to replace both.i would recommend replacing both as they are identical sensors and acommon source of trouble on these models.

I have a 2000 ford escort zx2 that has a code of po340, i wanted to know what needs to fixed and a good repair shop in my area.

It needs a timing belt. It has either stretched or jumped time. You can try replacing the cam sensor first, but despite the description, it usually means it is out of time. You'll want to make sure the cam sensor is plugged in (on the front right of the engine head) and that the VCT solenoid is plugged in (sticks out of the top left of the valve cover) and have it scanned again to see if you got any new codes like P138x.

Code1126 says thorttle relay i dont know where it is, but i also think that that is the sensor it self.

Here is what P1126 means. The Throttle Control Motor Relay is defective. Now, you have a normal throttle and not an electronic one so I would recheck the code as it is probably the throttle position switch since

DTC - PO340, PO325

My Nissan micro 2004 model just stopped in the middle of the road one day then the engine management light came on, anyway took it to my local garage TWK Thomas who said it was a cam shaft sensor problem. OK so sensor was put on, engine management light went off for two days only. So went back to the garage they said that another sensor should be fitted on the opposite side. And then the problem should be rectified, but i had given the £160 for this problem to be fixed the first time. I decided it was time to take it to another garage Nis Tec they put it on the computer and a code po340 came up would this mean another sensor or the cam chain has stretched please help. ...claire
