The sensors under the hood had a ground problem i have tapped into the ground on sensor and ran a new ground back to battery negative [-] to stop that.
get a chilton's manual from orielly auto and it should give a wiring diagram and tell you the color of each wire from sensor one wire from each sensor goes to a common tie point which is the ground circuit hook into that wire from sensor and run a new wire to battery negative.

I started my 2005 dodge diesel with ether it idle alright then when I revved it up it stayed revved up at about 2300 rpms and up what's wrong

Check vacuum lines. Check idle control senser check air control senser. If it had a MAP senser check it. For senser unplug them while running, should change performance if not have that senser checke. Vacuum leak will not change when unplugging air control senser.

Code p0340

Code 340 is for a problem with the cam sensor signal going back to the computer. Since you replaced the sensor and the problem continued, chances are the real problem is in the wiring harness or the object on the camshaft the sensor uses as a reference point.
Unplugging the sensor makes the computer use a known good signal or value in place of the sensor.

My 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 skips, jerks, and the tackometer jumps up and down only sometimes. The times are random.

Check for a vacuum leak around the intake manifold.You can use carb cleaner to find the leak the engine rpm will change when it sucks in the carb cleaner.Most likely its the intake manifold gasket but make sure to check all vacuum hoses.

How many sensors does my 2006 solara have

Dependa on the defination of the word senser. The main sensers that tell the computer what's going on and then thiers another set of sensers that tell the driver what's going on the ten are you just talking about the engine or the transmission or the brakeing system or the aircomditioning system. The ABS braking system has a fluild level senser, a wheel speed senser ( one at each wheel) if your solara has four wheel drive it's got a rear differantial speed senser and a transmission out[ut speed senser. then the sysyem uses sensers in other systems like the bdy control sysyem to get anbieant temperture and alaitude information and the stabitly system has a GPS conection and real speed and direction and conpass readings all used to just get the ABS system working and the traction control system That shares these sensers also has inputs from the engine conrol system as to trottle position and air flow and RPM and may require the engine control system to stall or satutrer the engine or even limit RPM to regain traction or get the vehical headed in the right direction. The air conditioning system depending on the yype of system installed and what factory it was made in and what country it was made for sale in can change the number of sensers that's in it quite highly. Some of the zone indepentant controlled fully automatic systems ( top of the line) can have as many as 5 temperture sensers alone never mind 1 or on some models two sunlight sensers. The freaon pressure sensers as many as four and no less then two. An RPM senser on the compressor clutch and information from the engine system as to throttle position( it turns the compressor off in wide open) and high RPM ( it turns the compressor off to prevent over speeding the compressor and to give the car all the power it can to go fast.) the evaporator temperture as to not allow it to freeze. amoisture senser as to direct dry air onto the windshield to clear it as a safty concern. I've not even begun to tell above the engine or the transmission or the theif recovery systems or the antitheif systems.

What does Troubleshooting code PO170 mean? And what part is the computer reading that said it was bad?

This code refers to fuel system malfunction. Fuel trim can go beylond the limits of the computers to tune the car for alot of reasons. the most common reasons that will go away are (1) you changed to differnt gas and the computer couldn't adapt to it fast enough and it turned the light on ( theirs nothing wrong with your car) try to run your car on the same fuel to avoid this problem and this is true with all cars and trucks even older ones. (2) any kind of tuneup problem, ( not changing the oil, Air filter, Antifreeze, on a timly basic) (3) A senser failed ( you noticed that this is third) Cars don't fail as much as thier owners adbuse them ( forget to do basic servives on time) The primary oxagen senser reports this problem to the computer but it only fails if the car has lots of miles, or the wrong fuel is run in it. Mazda sensers are very good and therefore they cost alot to change and the computer is so sensitive that an aftermarkey( parts store ) senser may cause more harm than good. If you don't have a true scanner, ( not a code reader ) then you need to hire this senser dianosic done so you don't change unnessary parts. ( example lets stay it has a bad plug wire and one cyclinder misses just enough to send enough raw gas down the exhuast to make the mixture off. You go changing the oxagen senser and foul the new one with the raw unburnt gas and when you do get it fixed correctly you have to change the senser and get the correct repair also. A bad map senser can do this too even a vacume leak in any hose or evewn a break problem that makes the power break booster use too much vacume. And the list of things that will change the mixture go on and on. Get the code reset and keep an eye on how it runs and how much gas it's useing. the light comes back on tell your scanner operator as much as you can about how it's been running (even real good, and even good gas mileage) your mechanic does'nt what to break a good thing.

This Summer Engine hesitation during warm up. Fine after warm

Your right ! The coolant temperture senser is ( bent ) Lying to the computer to the real temperture of the coolant. mixture wrong and it runs bad till warmed up. Senser is cheap and easy to install. it won't code the check engine light unless it goes plumb open or shorted and doesnt happen too much. newer cars and trucks they fixed this and the newer computers conpare the air charge temperture senser, the coolant tenperture senser, the ambiant temperture senser and the interior temperture senser and it knows how long its beenoff and the newer ones still even know that time it is and gat to know its running pattern if it has one. So it tunes its self to the finest end for your pattern and remembers it. Some thing doesn't seen right and someone of these doesnt make sense it goes on its patteren and runs just fine guessing whitch sensers to believe and which to take with a grain of salt. It does it a few times too many it remembers which senser is the lyer dis regards it and turns the check engine light on uses the rest of the good sensers to run on and goes on its merry way telling you to take me to your dealer to get another car or be fixed. They hope you'll get another car so they can soak you again fixs your old one and make a ton trashing it so the government can pay them a bonus to get you in there to keep the ecomomy moving

94 lumina will not start after getting warm. will turn over but fuel injectors dont work. works during cold weather but not in hot weather.

The check engine light should be on with the engine running. The coolant temperture senser may be open at some temps the fastest way to test this is to change the senser ( it's cheap and a high failure rate part all auto parts stores will haveplenty of this high failure part in stock and they fail many ways. If the car ever overheated it's damaged or truly bad. A very good one will optimize fuel mileage so if it's suspect change it anyway as money well spent a working but wrong senser can cost alot of gas on any fuel injection car or truck, You get what you pay for in temp sensers and the brand name ones are better. All of them are suspect to be bad even when new and ohm test at temperture charts are is repair manuels. Crank sensers and cam sensers also get hot and quit they cost more are harder to change and fail more on the 3.8 motor than the 3.1 or the 3.4. Igiton modules do this too but it sounds like its been doing this awhile and modules and crank sensers don't stay half bad very long. they stop altogrther. Temp sensers can stay bad and work wrong. If you can get a scanner hooks to the car on data stream the senser may show room temp when cold but as it heats up goes up then to -34 thats open the system doesn't know that to do as the air charge temp senser doesn't agree and the system fails to start and will check as flooded. Flooring the gas and hoding it there may start it anyway. The trottle position senser were to show open thats the clear flood mode and the injectors won't fire. Tps voltage should show .5 volt les than 1 volt at idel (it'll start) and 5 volts at full throttle or nearly. if it shows with a scanner of a voltmeter on the center wire 5 volts or 0 it won't start. Coolant senser fails more often and is cheaper

Valve pressure renault laguna

you must make sure the senser is the correct one.each wheel senser has to be correct.they are not the same.i think they are colour coded.say rear wheel wont work on front etc.sometimes inflate pressure to around 45psi on side that is faulty then let pressure down to correct level resetts the senser.otherwise think its renault dealer to reset computer
