Question about 1995 Volvo 960

2 Answers

How do you put in a new cam position sensor in a volvo 960?

I have a 95 960 wagon. The check engine light is on and a volvo mechanic said I need to replace the cam position sensor. Is this difficult to do on my own. I found sensors selling on the web for around $150 and the mechanic wants to charge me around $450 to swap it oot?

That's because it's in the distributor. He's replacing the whole thing. A good idea if you never took one apart.

2002 VOLVO S80 T6 CODE P0017


the word correlation means relationship between two or more items . In this case it means that when the crank shaft sensor is triggered then the camshaft sensor has to be in agreement that the position of the piston and valves is in the right position to allow spark and fuel.. there are air gaps between each sensor and the rotor that triggers them and if this is not correct or there is dirt in the air gap ( the sensors may be a bit advanced or retarded in the fitment holes) then this relationship of positions is being interfered with and so you get the fault code. If after rechecking the fitment of the sensors and using a scanner to put the engine light off ,you still have a problem ,I would suggest that you find an accredited shop the does a lot of work on your make of car to assist with the fault.

I HAVE A 1999 V70 WAGON AND THE ENGINE MANAGEMENT LIGHT IS STAYING MY MECHANIC REPLACED THE CAM ANGLE SENSOR BUT THE LIGHT IS BACK ON IT HAS BEEN SUGGESTED THAT IT COULD BE THE OXYGEN SENSOR


After your mechanic replace the Cam Angle Sensor, did he reset the fault code to 00. If yes and the light went off and stayed off for a while then came back on later it may be the O2 sensor.

    This P0341 code basically means that the powertrain control module (PCM) detected a problem with the camshaft signal. The camshaft position sensor (CPS) sends a specific signal to the PCM for Top Dead Center on the compression stroke as well as signals indicating the position of the cam sensor. This is accomplished through a reluctor wheel attached to the camshaft that passes by the cam sensor. Any time that the signal to the PCM is inconsistent with what the signal should be, this code is set. NOTE: this code can also be set by extended cranking periods.

    The repair is to first verify that the ignition timing is set correctly. based on your description, it sounds like the family mechanic screwed it up. Go find someone competent and get the timing verified to be correct. Timing that is WAY out of adjustment can also cause this problem.

    It may well be a camshaft sensor at fault. The camshaft sensor is part of the 'ignition timing' system and works in conjunction with the ignition packs (or coil). The camshaft sensor is a common item to fail. However, before you rush off and buy a new one, be aware that there are other sensors on the Volvo. And Volvo parts aren't cheap. There's a crankshaft sensor and cold start sensor too ... Best bet is to get a mobile mechanic who has the necessary electronic equipment to connect to the car's ecu (computer). This will usually give an error code which indicates what unit is faulty. You can always change the parts yourself. Don't be tempted to change one part after another in the hope that the car will start. It'll work out more expensive in the long run. Pay to get it checked professionally and do the work yourself.

    Hi Joe, first I have never worked on a volvo however, I would suggest you have them check the CPS (cam positioning sensor) and the CSS (crankshaft sensor) ford and chrysler have the exact problem and these sensors dont throw codes. I hope this will help you my friend good luck and let me know how you make out, take care.

    1999 Volvo XC Check Engine for 7 years


    Consider disconnecting your check engine light, and fixing things that actually break.  Okay, well at least concede it is not the engine, the engines in these cars are very good.  My experience with my v70 has been that the light is on more than it is off, and it is usually something trivial-- a tail light bulb, a thermostat (have you tried that?).
    In the case of the thermostat three different shops charged 100 to check the computer, shrugged and suggested a new transmission, new catalytic converter, selling the car -- although the transmission appeared fine on the computer. The car had been overheating, and the transmission which overheated due to this malfunctioned in hot weather too.  Before selling I quizzed friends and non-volvo mechanics about the overheating problem.  I bought a thermostat, the guy showed me how to put it in, flushed coolant and voila, the engine light went off, the transmission works flawlessly.  The check engine light went back on because the tail light went out, replaced it, light went back off.  The car has such a bad rap people assume the worst.  Beware of the dealerships and mechanic shops, they want to sell you stuff.
