Was the distributor removed from engine or was turned any, if so then a cam offset must be adjusted.You must have a good scan tool.

Dealer just replaced timing belt and water pump and check eng light is on codes are p0345 and p0340 how bad is this and how far can I drive it


P0345 and P0340 are "Camshaft Position Sensor" problems. Hopefully it is only a wire or sensor bad, and not a camshaft improperly lined up when the belt was changed.
Go back to dealer to have the problem fixed. If the motor runs smoothly, it should be okay to drive to the dealer. The mechanic might have left a sensor wire disconnected.

Toyota corolla 2001 making noise as it reaches running temp.p1346 code


I think the engine is misfiring because of cam position sensor.These can be the possible causes :
- Faulty Intake Camshaft Position sensor
- Faulty Camshaft Position Solenoid Valve
- Engine mechanical condition - Valve timing off
- Intake Camshaft Position sensor harness is open or shorted
- Intake Camshaft Position sensor circuit poor electrical connection

What does p0340(pd) code mean


P0340 is

Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
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.
FB.init("dd7d9e9681341cde77587bc6a2029f6f"); OBD-Codes.com on Facebook Symptoms

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

If I recall correctly there was a recall on the camshaft position sensor. In some cases it would melt.
MAKE: DAEWOO MODEL: NUBIRA YEAR: 2001 DEFECT SUMMARY:
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, THE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR MAY MELT RESULTING IN A BURNING SMELL AND VISIBLE SMOKE, WHICH MAY SUBSEQUENTLY LEAD TO THE MELTING OF THE CAMSHAFT COVER AND THE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR WIRE HARNESS.
CONSEQUENCE SUMMARY:
THIS COULD POSSIBLY CAUSE AN UNDERHOOD FIRE.
CORRECTIVE SUMMARY:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSORS AND INSTALL AN ADDITIONAL FUSE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON SEPTEMBER 7, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT DAEWOO AT 1-877-362-1234, OPTION 6, OR FIND A LOCAL DEALER THROUGH THEIR WEBSITE AT WWW.DAEWOOUS.COM.
