The cam sensor is on the right(pass. side) in front of cylinder head. held in with one bolt. if you buy your new one first, it will help you indentify the one in the engine. simply disconnect plug,(red tab must first be released by pushing through sideways) remove the bolt, slide the old one out, and the new one in. reconnect, and bob's your uncle!

2001 Durango 4.7l. Can there still be spark at all the plugs if the PCM is faulty?


This may or may not be the cause, On the 4.7L V8 engine, the Camshaft position sensor failure can cause the engine to crank but not start or it can cause intermittent stalling. A new camshaft position sensor will be needed. God-Bless! Please go here to read more on this. Dodge intrepid.net

My 2001 dodge ram will not start, has fire and fuel to the carb. Also seems to be turning over faster than before.


Is it possible the timing chain broke and the cam is not turning ?
Does your engine have a timing belt or chain ?
Does the engine have normal compression ?
A 2001 model should be fuel injected, by the way.

Code p2089 dodge sprinter 2007


DTC P2089 A - Camshaft Pos Actuator Ctrl Circ Hi Bank1
On this code the cam or crank sensor is normally the culprit. I would replace the crankshaft position sensor. There is anothe possible sensor that can cause this to happen vehicle speed sensor and engine coolant temp sensor. The way it works is The ECM receives signals such as crankshaft position, camshaft position, engine speed, and engine coolant temperature. Then, the ECM sends ON/OFF pulse duty signals to the intake valve timing control solenoid valve depending on driving status. This makes it possible to control the shut/open timing of the intake valve to increase engine torque in low/mid speed range and output in high-speed range. But the most common problem is the cam or crank sensor Start with the crankshaft sensor and then camshaft sensor.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My car is showing PO344 (Camshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Intermittent) as a problem it's having... I replaced the camshaft sensor about 2 years ago when I was having a similar problem; could the sensor...


All ways, the camshaft position sensor signal sent to the ECM is intermittent

The Camshaft Position Sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the camshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The camshaft position sensor senses the retraction of camshaft (intake) to identify a particular cylinder. The camshaft position sensor senses the piston position. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor.

When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.

When the crankshaft position sensor (POS) system becomes inoperative, the camshaft position sensor provides various controls of engine parts instead, utilizing timing of cylinder identification signals.

Check thos DTC diagnostic and possible solutions about P0344 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/Loss of Power
- Engine Stall

Possible causes
- Harness or connectors (The sensor circuit is open or shorted)
- Camshaft position sensor may be faulty
- Camshaft (Intake) may be damage
- Starter motor may be faulty
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery

Possible solution
- Charge battery
- Repair harness or connector
- Replaced Camshaft Position Sensor.
Tech notes
- Sometimes and in some models, low battery voltage or a weak starter can can trigger a Camshaft Position Sensor code.


Hope this helps.

I have a 2001 dodge neon that has this code obd11 what is it


code 11 means intermittent loss of either camshaft or crankshaft position sensor. check connections to both sensors. also look for any damage to the wires connected to each sensor. either sensor will set off a signal to pcm of a no crank referance signal detected during engine cranking.

I have a 2001 Dodge Intrepid and it keeps dying


Trouble code P0340 means: Camshaft Position Sensor A Circuit (Bank 1 or single sensor). Recheck the sensor's gap. Remove the old paper spacer from the sensor and replace it with a new one or if you have a new sensor, make sure you have installed a new paper spacer installed before installing the new sensor. Good luck and it's common for after market cam/crank sensor to be more temperamental then the OEM.

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.
