Just dis-connect the electrical plug and unscrew the old sensor. Once out, screw the new sensor in and connect the plug. If the new sensor doesn't have an o-ring on it near the thread it'd be a good idea to put some thread tape on it to make sure oil doesn't leak out. To remove the old sensor and intall the new one there's actually a specially socket you can buy that has a slot in it for the wires. It can also be done with a spanner but the sensors can sometimes be very tight. Be careful not to let the spanner slip as it may round off the nut or even cause personal injury.

I have 2 engine codes on my 2005 dodge neon. they are p0325 and p0340. the car has problem starting and misses badly for a while. What is the problem and how do i fix it? thanx for the help!

the p0325 code pertains to a knock censor. the p0340 is for your cam shaft sensor. i've had this problem before. try replacing the cam shaft censor first and run the codes again to see if the other still comes up. it should fix the problem. hope this helps

Misfire on 2 and 5

Hi Paula,

You didn't mention if you changed the plug wires.

You mentioned replacing the camshaft sensor. Have you checked the Crankshaft Position Sensor? Or the Mass Air Flow Sensor (may need cleaning)? Or the Throttle Position Sensor?

Cranks but wont turn over

you know. i took it to a mechanic and actually.... The timing belt cut the Crank Shaft Censor... So it was the crank shaft censor again. The wires were routed wrong from the first mechanic that "fixed" the car.
