SOURCE: a p0340 trouble code and i changed the cam

Code P0340 is a camshaft position sensor CIRCUIT fault. This means it can be a bad sensor, wiring fault (loose connector, short, open), or even a bad PCM. Since you've already changed the camshaft position sensor you've eliminated that possibility. It's time to do some electrical troubleshooting. That, of course, depends upon your skill set for this type of work and equipment (mostly a good dmm and schematics). If you're not equipped for this then you'll likely have to seek assistance from a local shop.

SOURCE: change cam position sensor chy

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the electrical harness connector from the camshaft position sensor.
  3. Unfasten the camshaft position sensor mounting bolt. There is a hole in the bracket for tool access to the sensor mounting bolt.
  4. Rotate the sensor away from the engine block.
  5. Pull the camshaft position sensor up out of the chain case cover. Do not pull on the sensor wire.
There is an O-ring on the sensor case. The O-ring may make removal of the sensor difficult. A light tap on top of the sensor prior to removal may reduce the force needed for removal. Inspect the O-ring for damage and replace if necessary.
To install:
If the sensor removed is going to be re-installed, clean off the old spacer on the sensor face. A new spacer must be attached to the sensor face before installation. If the sensor is being replaced, be sure that a paper spacer is attached to the sensor face and an O-ring is positioned in the groove of the new sensor.
  1. Apply 1-2 drops of clean engine oil to the O-ring prior to installing the sensor.
  2. Install the sensor into the chain case cover and rotate into position.
  3. Push down on the sensor until contact is made with the camshaft gear. While holding the sensor in this position, install and tighten the mounting bolt to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  4. Attach the electrical harness connector to the camshaft position sensor.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Location of the CMP camshaft position sensor and of the CKP crankshaft position sensor. '97 Lincoln Continental

It's a 97. Have it scanned for codes. If you don't have a cam or crank code. replace the timing components. All of them. Cam/crank syn is a bad belt/chain or slack pullies/tensioners.

How can I disable the door chime which is triggered every time I open the Drivers door of of my 1996 Lincoln Continental?

Its sensing that there is a key in the ignition. You have to replace the switch in the ignition cylinder that senses a key is inserted. Or alternatively access a wiring diagram and cut the wire from the key sensor to eliminate it.

Fri-My car wouldn't start. I got 8 codes: P0133, P0171, P0174, P0300, P0340, P01130, P01131, & P01132. It was determined that I needed to change my camshaft sensor. Unfortunately, after ordering it...

the codes are in the area of the heated oxygen sensor ( exhaust manifold before the cat converter--codes p 0131 ,p1131,p1132)
code p 3033 is random misfires, code p0340 is cam shaft position sensor fault
the engine will run with heated oxygen sensor problems (HO2S) but will not run with a cam shaft position sensor problem
check for wiring problems then replace that sensor , ensuring that you have the correct air gap to the rotor clearance I suspect it is a wiring problem as I am guessing in that finding the sensor you were moving the harness around to see where it was and to get to it
in that case you probably made a good connection for a period of time and then it failed again

Will not start no spark

Check your cam sensor and crank sensor. Both are used by the computer to determine when it is time to throw spark. If either sensor fails the car will just crank and not even try to start. If I were to guess I would say it is the crank sensor. You can try scanning it for codes. If a sensor failed it should have a "no crank signal" or "no cam signal" code. Good luck.

bank 1 and bank 2 refer to the positioning of the sensor on the car, bank 2 just means the second one, so if you start out at your exhaust manifold and inspect the piping going back, the second O2 senor you find will be the one you need to change, it will likely be around or near the catalitic convertor.
