What size Engine?
Most Camshaft Postion Sensors are located on the front of the engine on the passenger side, where the pulleys and belt is located. It is below the throttle intake, so take the Air Connection off. It located between the the power steering pump and the front engine mount. Follow two wires going straight down to the sensor. It is inserted into the Engine Block or Timing Chain Cover. Usually there is a 10mm bolt locking it into place. You must loosen (actually take it off) this to pull it out. The Sensor (is not screwed in) has o-rings and is a little difficult to pull out. Make sure you unplug the sensor and do not pull on the wires.
Hint: Put clean engine oil on the sides of the new sensor (on the o-rings) before to ease putting it back in. Make sure it is properly seated!

I have a problem with my 96 caravan P0340 Code can you help me? Van will run and sometimes shut down and won't start for several hours.


P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction

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. Take it somewhere to get it checked out to see which of the above it is.

I have a 2001 Grand Caravan. It will start and run then quits. Then i cant get it to start, Ihave changed fuel pump and filter. The same problem exists.Could this be a crank shaft sensor.


Do you get any trouble codes like P0320? This is the code for the Crank sensor. I have a 2003 Caravan myself and that is the code I was getting, but after replacing the Crank sensor twice it turns out it also needed the Camshaft sensor. Good Luck.

Code reads P0340 Camshaft position Sensor circuit


That makes the computor think the timing is off. Replace the sensor and see if that does it. You will then have to have the code cleared (erased) or the light will come back on/stay on.

I pulled codes from a dodge grand carvan the code is p0016 crankshaft sensor b1 sa1 replaced and replaced camshalf sensor also still did not fix the problem what other part should i look at


Hello! The DTC P0016 inidicates a cranskshaft and camshaft misalignment. If you only replaced the camshaft position sensor - you may need to replace the crankshaft position sensor - which is located at the top where the engine and transmission connect.


Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!
