How do I replace cam positioning sensor

The camshaft position sensor is located near or directly to the area of the crankshaft. It is positioned near the top of the engine casing. It should be near the intake or exhaust camshaft. Installing one will not be that difficult because it is easily accesible and there's no need to remove other parts of the engine. Once you found the camshaft position sensor, you may now start to replace it.

Remove the bolts that holds the camshaft position sensor in place with the socket or adjustable wrench. The sensor is connected to the fuel injection system via plug that has two wires and has small bolts that holds it in place. You would need these bolts to bolt the new one. So be sure you do not misplace them. Next, remove the plugs that connect it to the fuel injection system so you can also remove the sensor from the casing.

But before you install the sensor, you need to connect the sensor to a multimeter, to check and make sure that the sensor is working properly. And then set it to a low resistance setting or to the diode test function. In front of the sensor, you need to pass a magnet and make sure to do this many times and then observe the reading if there are significant changes. If there are changes in reading, this means the sensor is working properly and you can now proceed to with the installation.

Look for the cylinder head and make sure that the new "o" ring is lightly coated with engine oil before you place it on the cylinder head and then tighten the bolts. Next, connect the sensor to the electrical connector. It should lock in place when you plug it in. Just press the release tab, to remove it. Connect it again to the fuel injection system after placing the sensor then bolt the camshaft position sensor and put the engine casing back.

Cam shaft sensor bank 1

Your camshaft sensor is shot. I had the same problem on my 03 coupe. There are two camshaft sensors. They are located on the back side of each cylinder head. My 1st one went out and I replaced it and then the other went out about a week later. The sensors cost roughly $70 each and aren't that difficult to change. Hope this helps.

I need to find the Cam Sensor location on a 2007 VW Beetle

To replace the camshaft position sensor, you must remove the toothed cam belt (loosen the tension and pull the belt off of the cam sprocket) and the cam sprocket. The sensor is located behind the sprocket - it is easily replaced. Although this may seem daunting, the hard part is relocating the cam sprocket correctly to the camshaft. You see, there is no key or fixed marks to get it back on correctly. I do recommend that you get a repair book to try the yourself. The VW book is somewhat difficult to use and I have never looked at the Haynes manuals

That trouble code reflects a problem with your crankshaft and/or camshaft sensor. You could remove those sensors and have them tested at a dealer/automotive servicing center before replacing them to be sure the sensors are in fact at fault and that it is not problem in the wiring. The sensors are an easy fix the wiring can be difficult if you don't know what to look for and check. If you need help with the location of those sensors or any other info let me know. good luck

Crankshaft and camshaft sensors location in nissan altima 2003

You are incorrect sir. There is a very good Youtube video showing you exactly where it is that is how I changed mine. The Crankshaft is located behind the engine block below and around from the cam sensor which is easly spotted looking at the engine. The crankshaft is in a difficult spot but once you figure out where it is it's easy...ish hope this helps

Diagnostic code P 340 and P 341 Camshaft Position Sensor Malfunction for a Dodge Ram Diesel 2500. What does it mean?

The Camshaft Position Sensor tells the PCM (computer) the position of the Camshaft Position. This Sensor sychronized along with several other Sensors including the Crankshaft Position Sensor the firing of the electronics to the spark plugs of each cylinder.
It is not difficult to replace and relatively inexpensive.
1. Disconnect the Negative side of the Battery,
2. Locate the Sensor and unplug.
3. Remove the Position Sensor retaining bolt.
4. Pull out the Sensor.
Replacement is reverse of above order.
Hint: use fresh engine oil on the end/sides of the Sensor especially around the rubber o-ring(s) to ease pushing the Sensor into proper position.

1996 Jaguar XJ6: Diagnostic (Check Engine) Camshaft Sensor A

If your car is a 4.0L there are no camshaft sensor. Only crankshaft sensor and timing sensor. Dont know your problem but if your car is not running it is very common that the crankshaft sensor is faulty. It is fairly easy replaced and located just above the crankshaft wheel atthe front of the engine. It is mounted with one 8mm boult.

Cam Shaft Sensor Problems

Had the same problem before on my 04 Neon SXT...camshaft sensor is on left side of engine block, take out the battery and to the left of it (face car) is the camshaft position sensor. To change it you'll have to move a few hoses but its plan to see there on the left side of the engine...pretty easy remove and replace. Fixed my problem of car not going above 2k RPM when i replaced the sensor.
