Look in either Chilton's Hardcover Manuals or Haynes repair manuals for it. If not, ask a dealer.

What are the probable causes of DTC P0340 other than a defective CPS?


Symptoms can include: Hard starting or no start
Rough running / misfiring Loss of engine power Causes
A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken the camshaft position sensor may have failed the PCM may have failed
there exists an open circuit
the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

Possible Solutions With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code,
diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try: Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit Check for continuity in the circuit wiring Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor Replace the camshaft position sensor as required Check the crankshaft position circuit as well Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required Diagnose/replace the PCM as required

Code p0336 crankshaft position sensor A CKT range/perf


CPS on a modern vehicle is the main input to the engine management computer to determine spark advance. If the CPS is toast then the EMC is not getting a good input to adjust timing.

What is the cps


Hi there:
A CPS (Crankshaft Position Sensor) is an electronic device used in an internal combustion engine to monitor the position or rotational speed of the crankshaft.






Hope this helps.

I am looking for the location of the CPS


Hi there,

The Crankshaft Position Sensor(CPS) is attached to the bell housing of your vehicle. The CPS detects teeth on the flywheel as they pass the sensor during engine operation and thus provides the computer with info concerning engine speed and crankshaft angle.

Hope this helps. Best of luck...

2005 Kia Sedona, Trouble Code P0320. Everything I read online tells me its a Crankshaft Sensor. I called Kia and then sent me to www.kiatechinfo.com were it says that the code is an Ignition System Failure...


This is a common problem usually related to the crankshaft position sensor. Before you replace it, disconnect the electrical connector to the CPS sensor and clean it with electrical contact spray and add a dab of dielectrical grease. If the problem continues, replace the CPS sensor. It is easy to replace and is not very expensive. It just bolts to the engine block with one or two bolts. I believe the CPS sensor on the Sedona is behind the timing cover on the front of the engine.

For what sensor is the code po340 on a dodge neon 04 and how i change.


Hi,
This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.

With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:

  • Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
  • Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
  • Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
  • Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
  • Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
  • Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
  • Diagnose/replace the PCM as required
Thanks.

I need some info on the were abouts,and how much im gittin in over my head with changein the crankshaft positioning sensor on my 1994 lexus LS 400?


It's not too bad of a project. Your CPS (Crankshaft Position Sensor) is located in the engine compartment, front engine area / driver's side, mounted in the engine block above the crankshaft pulley. I've provided a photo below to give you a better idea of what your looking for.

To remove the CPS, simply disconnect the wire harness and remove the mounting bolt. From there, the CPS should slide right out.

When installing your new CPS, make sure to check the tip to ensure it came with a new spacer (will be attached to the tip). Thereafter, install the sensor until the spacer lightly touches the sensor ring. Tighten the sensor mounting bolt to approximatley 105 in.lb. and attach the wire harness.

Help this helps and good luck!

A. See web link at bottom of page. Some 1989 and early 1990 vehicles equipped with the 4.0 liter engine and automatic transmission may experience an engine no-start, hard restart, or an engine die-out. This condition may be caused by low signal strength from the Crankshaft Position Sensors (CPS) due to a larger than desired distance to the engine flywheel sensing ring.
What you need to do is check to see if the vehicle has a slotted crank position sensor. If the vehicle is equipped with a slotted crank position sensor, Figure 1, check to see if the CPS grommet on the top of the transmission bell housing has been updated,see Figure 2. If the CPS grommet has not been updated, replace the CPS grommet.
You'll need a Crankshaft Position Sensor, slotted, part number 83100067 and Crankshaft Position Sensors Grommet, dust cover, part number 83100068. When you install it, make certain that the CPS is completely bottomed on the machined lip of the bellhousing and is as close as possible to the flywheel sensing ring without contacting it. go to this web page for diagram: http://autorepair.about.com/cs/faqs/l/bl557h.htm
