Question about 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

P0340 no cam signal

Runs great when cold, as soon as it warms up it will run fine as long as I do not accelerate too hard. If I accelerate with anything more than a lite throtle it will set code P0340 no cam signal at PCM it also will fall on its face simular to a dying fuel pump...the harder you mash the gas the worse it gets till you release the throtle...then it runs fine with minimal pressure on the gas. I've replaced the Cam Position Sensor, checked all of the wiring W/DVOM all voltage values and resistance values are correct according to Chryslers 05 service manual...Got any suggestions?

When cold the engine funs fine but when it warms up it starts to miss and surges the warmer the engine gets the worst it gets till it hardly runs,dies,surges and will not accelerate.

problem indicates electronic component failure due to heat from current flow
run the fault codes to determine the area or sensor that has failed
could be a cam/crank position sensor , ignition control module , coil,even the ECM

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.

98 Windstar 3.8l code p0340 keeps coming

I'm pretty sure that sensor is a two wire, which produces an AC volt signal back to the computer. You would test it with an analog volt meter while the engine is cranking or running.
It could be a problem with the object the sensor is supposed to be "watching" such as the end of the cam shaft.

1993 buick skylark stalls

Is the check engine light on ?
It sounds like the engine temp sensor is not right, but if that were true you should have a check engine light and a code for the sensor.
Have you checked fuel pressure ?
