P0340 Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit
P0344 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent


You'll need to replace the Camshaft Position Sensor and might as well replace the crankshaft sensor as well. With these codes and the symptoms you describe this should clear the problem for you. Also check the wiring harness around both sensors to make sure there are no issues. Maje sure no insulation is cut or missing along the entire run of the associated wiring.

I have a 2003 chyrsler 300m it went in limp mode codes p0700. P0340 p0344 p0430 p0888 came up cleared the codes and now it knocks.


clearing codes wont correct the problem and limp mode is designed to protect motor and transmission - p0700 is a transmission problem
P0700 Transmission Control System Malfunction p0340 is camshaft position sensor malfunction
https://www.obd-codes.com/p0340 p0344 is also a camshaft position sensor circuit problem
P0344 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent your p430 is a cat converter problem
https://www.obd-codes.com/p0430 and p0888 is transmission relay problem these reasons are limp mode the knock can be fuel not burning correctly or a lower engine knock can mean you damaged a piston

P0340 code and p0344 on 3.7 dodge Dakota


First check the easy thing. Have your battery tested. Sensors very sensitive to failing battery. If the battery tests fine then you will need to change the Cam sensor probably a $30 part. On your truck remove the air filter housing & the cam sensor should be easily accessible at the front of the cyl head. Hope this works for you. Based on your P codes it should.

most car washes have a under carrage wash now days.
I bet my money those sensors are exposed to the jet spray from the under carrage spray and causing water to get into the connectors,happens to me all the time but affects my coil system and the engine picks up a missfire,Gary

Neon Code P0344


I believe that the splice for the cam sensor is about 8 inches back in the harness. Power to the cam supplies several sensors. I have fixed a few that the splice was bad, There is very little room to work in to get to the splice, but it's not impossible to fix.

Check engine light is on for my 2004 expedition. It isn't time for an oil change and I just had new tires put on on tuesday. the only other problem is when it is running it is kind of a jerking...


The check engine light is connected to an array of sensors throughout the vehicle. Take the vehicle to an auto parts store to have them diagnose the problem. It will give them a code and they can tell you what the specific issue is. If you don't plan to do the work yourself you can take it to a mechanic to resolve. The jerking sensation is most likely the result of the a bad sensor. Good luck to you
