P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
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.

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


The Cam Position Sensor is located on the drivers side; the intake manifold is cut out where is sits on top of the engine block. Its black in color and has two 5.5 mm. screws that you'll be able to see.

Hope helps.

Code p0340, p0462 on subaru outback 2001


Po340 is a cam shaft sensor and po462 is low voltage on your fuel guage. So i assume you are haveing fuel level issues. If you can turn wrenches you can do these repairs yourself. Just do a google search and you can get some youtube videos of sensor replacement and location. Have fun.

PO102 and PO340 on 1997 GMC Jimmy


PO102 = mass airflow circuit low. Means there's a problem with the mass airflow sensor or circuit. Could be the sensor is disconnected, dirty, or faulty. PO340 = camshaft position sensor circuit. Could be ground wire disconnection, camshaft position sensor failed, PCM is failing, or even the crankshaft position sensor has failed. Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

HELLO, I HAVE TROUBLE CODES PO330,PO340, ON MY OBD2 READER WITH THE MAINT LIGHT ON IN 96 BMW Z3 ROADSTER 4CYL., PO330 IS KNOCK SENOR, PO340 IS CAMSHAFT POSITION SENOR, I WANT TO KNOW HOW TO FIX THEM BOTH....


The Cam Position Sensor is a common item to fail. However, the cam positioning mechanism can fail too giving that code.

There are two sensors and the Exhaust Cam Sensor is most common to fail. I always replace both.
Te CKP's are on the top front of the engine next to the cylindrical operation solenoids.

Knock sensors fail too and need checked or correct feedback to ECU with a scanner.
Find a shop near you at http://www.iatn.net/shopfinder/

These engines require regular oil changes with quality synthetic oils and OE filter....not a FRAM or WIX !

Buy only BMW sensors ...aftermarket have high failure rate.
