If it won't start, then that would be your crank sensor. It would still start but run bad if it was camshaft sensor.
The crank sensor provides a signal to your ignition module then to coil packs to provide a spark.

    Is the spark constant? If it is and doesn't cut out, then it would not be the crank sensor. Are you getting fuel? Do you have fuel pressure in the fuel rail? Can you hear the fuel pump run when key is in ON position?
    Fault 211 is an Ignition PIP Circuit (Pick-up Circuit)
    The PiP is the pulse from your distributor pickup used to calc RPM, fire

    injectors and calc timing advance signal to be sent back to the TFI or

    ignition module

    this is a code set when the ignition module fails, the pickup coil inside the distributor, or the engine computer. The most common of the three is the coil inside the distributor.

I changed out the MAP sensor,and the idle air sensor on my 2006 Ford Taurus. This was before I had the fault code read at a dealer. Code came back as P0340, and P0430 Band 2 cat worn out. I had the cam...


P0340 FORD - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 1Possible causes- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
- Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty starter motor
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery
P0340 FORD Description The Camshaft Position Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Engine Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The camshaft position sensor senses the retraction of camshaft (intake) to identify a particular cylinder. The camshaft position sensor senses the piston position. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor.

When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.

When the crankshaft position sensor (POS) system becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides various controls of engine parts instead, utilizing timing of cylinder identification signals.
P0430, main catalyst is worn out.

Camshaft position sensor on a 2003 ford taurus, how to replace


Need a repair shop to test the sensor

could be the cam sprockets stick

Your best off with the use of professional test
tools for diagnosing that

Look at some you tube video on the subject

Crank won't start, no spark at any spark plug wires, cranck shaf sensor has been replaced, fuel pressure at 45 PSI.


Might want to take a look at the camshaft position sensor. Shouldn't run much over $20

My car have problen code P1309 plz help me


HI, The P1309 can be set due to a couple of problems the common being the CPS camshaft position sensor failed. There are other components that can cause this code to set including the ECT engine coolant temp, MAF mass air flow, CKP crank shaft position.There are no simple test that can be done at home but this code is usualy quick to diagnose for a good tech.

Engine light on with code P1309


This code could mean:
  • the camshaft position sensor could be defective,
  • the camshaft synchronizer (the part that took the place of the distributor on DIS engines) has failed,
  • if you have recently had the camshaft synchronizer replaced it could be out of time.

My car is not pumping oil a 1997 Ford Taurus I replaced the oil pump


Im guessing you need to replace the gear on the camshaft position sensor! it also drives the oil pump. its a common failure its made of plastic or fiber. im sure you also have a camshaft position sensor code. replace that gear and hopefully your motor is ok! good luck!

Check engine light on. has dtc of p1309. what could it be? I replaced cam sensor but code is still there.


Code PO1309 : Misfire Monitor Failure Description : When the misfire monitor is disabled,usually due to the input signal generated by the camshaft position sensor, by sensing the passage of teeth from the camshaft position wheel. Possible Causes : PCM(power train control module), Mass Air Flow Sensor, Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor, Crank Shaft Position Sensor, Camshaft Position Sensor.

I would think it would be just the Camshaft Position Sensor.I looked up the codes and they say pretty much the samething.
