The engine code you have given is a p0340, which is a cam sensor.
Why did you replace the distributor ?
Please let me know.

    can a distributor heat up stopping the car starting?

    @ lindsay because the camshaft position sensor is located inside of the distributor.

I have p0340 code on my 2002 Nissan Frontier but I don't know where my sensor is located and if there is even one in there.. I looked online couldn't find one to even replace it .... HELP!!!


Well code 340 is for a problem with the cam sensor circuit.
That does not mean the sensor has failed, only that it needs to be tested. You would need a scanner and the repair book to know how to go about testing the circuit.
Since those vehicles use a distributor, the cam sensor circuit would involve the ignition module in the distributor.

Nissan frontier will not start, will turn over but wont start.. gives p0340 code


what type frontier is it?? is it supercharged or not? p0340 is a cam position sensor issue. sensor is build into the distributor. by what you are saying, the distributor may be faulty. have you replaced the timing belt at 105k miles?? if belt is broken, distributor will not spin and vehicle will not start.

My 2003 Nissan Frontier stalled and will not crank up when I. Scanned it the P0325 and P0340 codes appeared. How do I fix this?


I would say that the P0340 is causing your no start problem.....This is a cam sensor code......The cam sensor is in the distributor and is not servicable.....I would recommend taking it to a repair shop to properly diagnose the problem before replacing the distributor.

2001 Nissan Frontier 4x4 crewcab supercharged. P0340. won't start. also p0325 power to distributor, no spark, resistor ok, coil resistance ok, distributor checks out ok on scope.


P0340....Camshaft Position Sensor 'A' Circuit (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)
P0325....Knock Sensor 1 Circuit (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)if you have no spark it your cam sensor
