It should be on the top of the front timing cover. that is at the front of the engine probably in the center. It will have a two wire harness attached and it is held on by one bolt.

My 2002 infiniti q45 turned off while sitting at a traffic light. Tried to start itbut in won't start. Diagnosed it and It showed cam shaft position sensor circuit malfunction. .code P0340...I replaced...


Did you check your fuel filter? Did you have a shop install the sensors? If they are not positioned in correctly, it won't work. Have you had your fuel pump checked as well? That's in your fuel tank. With this high end car, there may be a reset code as well.

Were is location of cam shaft position sensor


Sorry but I don't have that information on file but it shouldn't be difficult to find because it has to be situated close to the camshaft.

Bear in mind the fault code definition says the cam sensor or circuit which means the wiring and connectors back to the ECU and part of the ECU itself. Internal breaks in the wiring harness where the wiring is subject to heat and vibration are far from unknown while cam sensors are fairly reliable.

I hope you will be lucky.

I have a 98 Fordwindstar 3.8 . It failed emission on code P0340 . I replaced the cam shaft position sensor it still shows code P0340 what else could it be?


the input to the sensor must also be checked. this link provides some diagnostic procedures. diagnosis for camshaft and crankshaft sensors are similar, as stated in the article.

Car would not start, after siiting for an hour it did start .


mcdevito75 here, BEST BET, let the shop do this work, too many un forseen problems could come up. The stalling and unable to start for a while could also be a bad ignition module, no test for this part, but I would have it changed, for if it is a bad ignition module, all this other work will not fix the stalling and later start of your car.

Most common cause for code P0340 of 95 Ranger


Hi, the cam shaft sensor will be located Under the hood, center, upper engine area, mounted behind rear of intake manifold, in the engine block.


This is a magnetic or hall effect sensor. It sends a signal to the computer relaying information about shaft speed, position and acceleration or deceleration. This information determines when the fuel/air mixture needs to be ignited and how much mixture is needed for the engine.

The possible causes of failure will be faulty housing or faulty wires as well. A faulty ECM could trigger a false alarm as well. this is highly unlikely but, possible in most cases. The most reported reasons is flat out sensor failure.
