P0340 camshaft position sensor problem. Front end of car was damaged in an accident, I checked the computer codes to see why the engine wouldn`t start and this code came up.


If this sensor has a problem or is not connected it can cause failure to start. Maybe the sensor was damaged during the accident. Have it checked. If that seems fine, then u then might have to look at your camshaft, be sure its still ok and set right.

My drivers door is hanging about two inches the car was in an accident before i owned it and the drivers door was obviously worked on. the hindges seem tight but are bending the body. (my question is...


The arm you are meaning is only the door stopper and is not supporting the weight of the door. It is possible that the door hinges and door post have changed in the position/alignment after the accident. So it is ideal that the door be taken out and the tinkering done on the door post , then the hinges can be changed or fixed to alignment of the correct gap.

Hi, I have an older toro snowblower w/ tecumseh 7 hp. When idling it is fine,but with full throttle the engine seems to over rev. I've adjusted the 2 carb settings to specs and it seemed to run well, but...


The carburetor settings should be to make the engine run correctly, not meet some specification. The upper jet is for idle adjustment and the lower adjustment is for high speed running. It the lower jet is too far CW, the engine will be running lean and tend to miss. Too far CCW and the engine will run 'muddy' and tend to blow black smoke from the exhaust. Throttle speed is determined by a balancing act between two springs, the governor, and the throttle position. Generally, there are several options for spring placement--a series of holes drilled in the throttle arm and the governor arm set this balance. Have the springs been replaced? Have you tried a fresh spark plug? You may require professional assistance on the throttle adjustment. Hope this helps!

Hi,i noticed some of the tappets on our 70-289z were quite loose as if they wouldnt be giving much push on the valve while others seemed to tight almost holding the valve open,how do i ensure they are all...


funny somebody asked this question last night. here is the adjusting procedure:

This procedure for the 289 and early 302 V8 engines is designed for engines in which the rocker arm mounting studs do not incorporate a positive stop shoulder on the mounting stud. These engines were originally equipped with this kind of stud. However, due to production differences, it is possible some 289 or early 302 engines may be encountered that are equipped with positive stop rocker arm mounting studs. Before following this procedure, verify that the rocker arm mounting studs do not incorporate a positive stop shoulder. On studs without a positive stop, the shank portion of the stud that is exposed just above the cylinder head is the same diameter as the threaded portion, at the top of the stud is of greater diameter than the threaded portion, this identifies it as a positive stop rocker arm stud and the procedure for the 351 engine should be followed.
  1. Crank the engine until No. 1 cylinder is at TDC of the compression stroke and the timing pointer is aligned with the mark on the crankshaft damper.
  2. Scribe a mark on the damper at this point.
  3. Scribe three more marks on the damper, dividing the damper into quarters (see illustration).
  4. With mark A aligned with the timing pointer, adjust the valves on No. 1 cylinder by backing off the adjusting nut until the pushrod has free-play in it. Then, tighten the nut until there is no free-play in the rocker arm. This can be determined by turning the pushrod while tightening the nut; when the pushrod can no longer be turned, all clearance has been removed. After the clearance has been removed, tighten the nut an additional 1 / 4 of a turn.
  5. Repeat this procedure for each valve, turning the crankshaft 1 / 4 turn to the next mark each time and following the engine firing order of 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8.

Engine quit on the road had new engine put in still willnot start seems to be off time but assured timming is set correctly replaced ecm still no help please help


If it has a coil pack the timing is partially adjusted by the ECM using readings from other sensors such as the Cam position sensor and the crank position sensor but if the timing belt wasn't set correctly to begin with that won't be able to make the adjustments needed.

Hi i have a problem with retiming my ignition system as i cannot find any timing marks on the distribution pickup


probably electronically controlled no timing marks usually indicates that the timing is controlled electronically and the only way to adjust is using a scan tool.

Throttle control won't work after i cleaned the carb and disconnected the governor. when i move the throttle handle it does move the throttle control on top of the carb to the high position but when i...


Hi again Ed,
Starting at the carb throttle shaft, your linkage rod (with tiny spring wrapped around it) should be connected directly to the governor's arm. If there's more than one hole in the arm, connect the rod in the upper-most hole.
Now, at the base of the governor's arm is another hole (possibly on a tab jutting from the arm). The main governor spring should be hooked in this hole and then back to the sliding throttle control that moves when the lever on the dash is moved. (This one definitely has a tab and hole.)

The choke cable end hooks directly on the choke shaft and it has intuitive movement. Verify that the choke butterfly closes and opens relative to the cable control on the tractor's dash.

To insure that we only do this procedure ONCE, and we get it right the first time, let's set the internal governor to base-line at this time.

With everything bolted back up, move the throttle control lever on the tractor's dash to full throttle. Then get a 3/8 wrench and a slotted screwdriver and locate the round governor shaft coming out of the engine block. The governor arm attaches to this with a clamping-bolt. You will notice that the round shaft is slotted for a screwdriver as well.
Loosen the clamping bolt slightly with your 3/8 wrench, insert your screwdriver and rotate the round shaft clockwise until it stops. (It has VERY little travel, so turn it both ways to verify that your are at FULL clockwise position.)
Hold screwdriver there and move the governor's arm in the same (clockwise) direction until the carb's throttle is set to WIDE OPEN throttle. Still holding the screwdriver clockwise, retighten the clamping bolt with the wrench.
Next, move the throttle lever on the dash of the tractor to idle and back to full several times and observe the carb's throttle shaft, it should come down from full throttle to idle and back again freely.

Start the engine and be prepared to shut it off if it over-revs.
If it doesn't over-rev, your base-line settings are correct.

By bending the tab on the sliding throttle control (the one that has the main spring attached) you can now increase or decrease spring tension and change top speed of the engine. Do this in small increments and if you have a tachometer for single cylinder's set top speed to 3400-3600 RPM.

Sorry this is lengthy, but as mentioned above, we only want to do this once.

Hope this helps, and feel free to ask away if you need more info!
