Question about 1997 Ford Ranger SuperCab
Replaced cam sensor checked that crank & oil pump gear were correctly timed still recieving 340 code. truck is a 97 2.3 with 267,000 + runs great. I did replace the timming belt 2 years ago @ aprox. 175,000 cause I didn't want to posibly have a big problem. My personal openion is this cam sensor is BS, the cam gear could be any place & the cam sensor wouldn't know cause it runs off the oil pump gear.I checked for wires bad conections & there are no visable signs of wear.
You should check the make sure the thermostat operates normally and that the fuel octane is 87 or higher (usually the lowest grade available at the station, so I doubt this is the issue). If your engine temperature isn't too high and the fuel is 87 octane or more, I'd expect you probably have a catalytic converter issue
