Question about 2002 Honda CR-V

Shop says my 2002 Honda CR-V needs to have a camshaft position sensor replaced. Can you tell me where it's located and if I can replace it myself? I have some knowledge from working on my own vehicles. Thank you

The TDC sensor (aka camshaft position sensor) is located under the same cover as the timing belt. Incidently, the water pump is also driven by the timing belt. The process for replacement of the TDC is not difficult, just involved. Here is a link that I hope you will find helpful; It gives step-by-step instructions with photos on how to change the TDC. This is for a civic, but the setup for the CR-V is essentially the same. If you have high mileage, you will also want to check the condition of the timing belt and water pump while you have everything apart. If you decide to replace the other parts as well, you will need the associated gaskets, timing belt, water pump and belt tensioner. http://www.civicforums.com/forums/7-honda-civic-diys-civic-tech-chat/323984-diy-tdc-sensor-cmp-sensor-replacement-w-pics.html?8caa1db9f40a1e09f200d7c940d8cc64
If your computer will not let you click on the link directly, you can copy and paste it to your address bar.

Good luck and God Bless.

OK, you have a code PO341 which means their is a problem with the signal the ECU is receiving from the cam sensor. It does not necessarily mean the sensor is bad. It can be one of these things.
1. Cam sensor wiring routed too close to spark plug wiring (causing interference) 2. Poor wiring connection at cam sensor 3. Poor wiring connection at PCM 4. Bad cam sensor 5. Damaged reluctor wheel You replaced the cam sensor and the problem is still there so we can assume that a defective cam sensor was not the problem. Do this.
1. Check that the wiring isn't routed too close to any secondary ignition components (coil, spark plug wires, etc.) 2. Visually inspect the wiring at the sensor for any burn marks, discoloration indicative of melting or chafing 3. Visually inspect the reluctor wheel through the cam sensor port (if possible) for any missing teeth or any damage 4. If reluctor isn't visible from outside the engine, visual test can only be done by removing cam shaft or intake manifold (depending on engine design)

I hate to tell you this, but there is not Camshaft Position Sensor on any 1.9L Single or Dual OHC. I assume you had someone read a Diagnostic Trouble Code from your PCM. They probably told you that you needed a Camshaft Position Sensor, and then offered to sell you one. I would recommend changing your spark plugs and your plug cables with FACTORY REPLACEMENTS. This will usually make the DTC go away. Aftermarket plugs and wires rarely work well for this engine. If you are looking for a CRANKSHAFT position sensor, look between the engine and transmission on the back side of the transmission. It is also known as the "transmission input speed sensor". More often than not though, your engine will not fire up if the Crank position sensor is not working. Hope this helps.

Check all fuses, then check the wiring of the two 02 sensors on either side of the cat. converter. If the fuses and wiring are fine, it is likely one of the oxygen sensors; one is about $50 and the other is $200 (parts only). Use only Honda recommended parts, not BOSCH.
