    I am not an expert on your model but it should be on the #1 bank which is the bank with #1 spark plug. and it should be the first sensor. Verify this before spending your money, check it with a tester and compare it to a known good one.

2001 Nissan Xterra Camshaft Position Sensor Location.


the camshaft sensor is located into distribuitor.......The camshaft position sensor is a basic component of the engine control system. It monitors engine speed and piston position. These input signals to the ECMare used to control fuel injection, ignition timing and other functions.

The camshaft position sensor has a rotor plate and a wave-forming circuit. The rotor plate has 360 slits for a 1° (POS) signal and 6 slits for a 120° (REF) signal. The wave-forming circuit consists of Light Emitting Diodes (LED) and photo diodes.

The rotor plate is positioned between the LED and the photo diode. The LED transmits light to the photo diode. As the rotor plate turns, the slits cut the light to generate rough-shaped pulses. These pulses are converted into on-off signals by the wave-forming circuit and sent to the ECM.

The distributor is not repairable and must be replaced as an assembly except distributor cap and rotor head.

NOTE: The rotor screw which secures the distributor rotor head to the distributor shaft must be torqued properly.

Where is the camshaft position sensor on a 1998 Dodge Dakota 5.2L


The camshaft position sensor is located on the distributor for all engines designed for the 1998 Dodge Dakota. Accessing the sensor requires removing the distributor cap and the distributor rotor. The camshaft sensor pigtail comes through the front of the distributor and connects to the engine wiring harness above the intake manifold.

Symptoms of cam sensor 99 cavalier


The Camshaft Position Sensor and the Crankshaft Position Sensor can exhibit some of the same symptoms. Checking the Sensor's output is the best way to determine which has failed, but this won't work on an intermittently failing sensor, unless you can monitor the sensor output with the vehicle running.

Failing Symptoms:
Intermittent stalling, but starts right back up
Sometimes, longer than normal cranking times
Check engine light P0340

Failed Symptoms:
Check engine light P0340
No start, no spark

On my 99 intrepid i canged both cam and crank positioning sensors the check engin light came on agin, with the code p0340. Can it be my wiring.


What does that mean? 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 Symptoms can include:
  • Hard starting or no start
  • Rough running / misfiring
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
