The Camshaft Position Sensor tells the PCM (computer) the position of the Camshaft Position. This Sensor sychronized along with several other Sensors including the Crankshaft Position Sensor the firing of the electronics to the spark plugs of each cylinder.
It is not difficult to replace and relatively inexpensive.
1. Disconnect the Negative side of the Battery,
2. Locate the Sensor and unplug.
3. Remove the Position Sensor retaining bolt.
4. Pull out the Sensor.
Replacement is reverse of above order.
Hint: use fresh engine oil on the end/sides of the Sensor especially around the rubber o-ring(s) to ease pushing the Sensor into proper position.

I got diagnostic trouble codes P0108,P0121,P0340 what does it means and give me the remedial action for that


Here is what each of your trouble codes means:

DTC P0108 MAP Sensor Range check High
DTC P0121 TPS Circuit Range/Performance Problem
DTC P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
Do you know how long each of these codes have been stored? Each one of these codes relate to a different part of the vehicle.

Your PO108 codes is probably a faulty Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor
PO121 is a Throttle Position Sensor malfunction code
PO340 is a Camshaft Position Sensor malfunction code

I would not think that all 3 of these codes all set at the same time, just wouldnt make sense unless there was a problem with the Engine Control Module (ECM) causing all these codes to set at the same time.

How do I replace the Camshaft position sensor on my 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 6 cyl diesel? Where is it and how do I get to it?


The Camshaft sensor is easily replaced. Just remove your distributor cap and rotor button, and there it is. Be careful however in removing this "Halls Effect" type magnetic switch for the wires leading out of the distributor fit into a groove in the side of the distributor. Quite often, I've found people in a hurry that will "chafe" the wires when installing the new camshaft sensor, so make sure you slide the wires from the sensor into the "U" shaped groove. About six inches from the distributor, you'll find the end that plugs into the Wiring Harness. Remove the old one and install the new one. If you're a perfectionist (like I tend to be)(smile), I always apply Di-Electric grease (found at most Auto Parts stores, for this is a Sensor and unwanted moisture or leaking electrical connections such as bad plug wires can lead to a false signal from the camshaft sensor to the computer, yielding in a No Start, a False Code, or Poor Gas Mileage. Just a suggestion.

Let me know if this works for you in understanding what I'm trying to explain here.

Good Luck,
