I believe it is on the drivers side end of the head, accesable from the top.

It is on the driver's side. I just replaced mine last night due to the P0340 code. The tech guide says it takes .4 of an hour, but for a novice like me, it took about an hour. There are lots of guides and 'how to's' online for replacing the sensor. My car has a turbo, so it was a little more work to get at the sensor.

I have a PT 2010 & the diagnostic codes are PO340, PO344 and PO325. mechanic is suggesting replacing the cam shaft post sensor & didn't even mention the knock sensor. Am I dealing with 1 or 2 issues


you are dealing with 2 issues
code p 0325 refers to knock sensor (KS) 1 bank 1--circuit malfunction ====causes ---wiring ---poor connection ---KS
code p 0340 refers to camshaft position sensor(CMP) sensor A bank 1--circuit malfunction===causes wiring--- CMP sensor ---ECM
code p 0344 refers to CMP sensor A bank 1 --circuit intermittent===causes --wiring --poor connection---CMP sensor --ECM
check wiring and connections before replacing the CMP as the wiring may be the cause of all the codes

The camshaft position sensor circuit is malfunctioning. This could be due to a wiring short in the circuit or the PCM and the camshaft position sensor may have failed.
