Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question
Located inside front timing belt cover assembly.
is there a way to test the sensor.i've read a few blogs that 1person had top replace the sensor 4times it'a 100.00 for a new sensor for this vechicle,could there be acomputer problem
what is the code you are getting ?
give me a minute
here is a pinpoint test
Circuit Description The camshaft position (CMP) sensor signal is produced by the CMP sensor pulses when the engine is running and crankshaft position (CKP) sync pulses are also being received. The PCM uses the CMP signal pulses to initiate sequential fuel injection. The PCM constantly monitors the number of pulses on the CMP signal circuit and compares the number of CMP pulses to the number of 58X reference pulses received. if the PCM does not receive pulses on the CMP reference circuit, Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0342 will set and the PCM will initiate injector sequence without the CMP signal with a one in four chance that injector sequence is correct. The engine will continue to start and run normally, although the misfire diagnostic will be affected if a misfiring condition occurs. Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0342 is a type B code. Conditions for Setting the DTC
Action Taken When the DTC Sets
Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC
An intermittent may be caused by a poor connection, rubbed-through wire insulation or a wire broken inside the insulation. Check for the following:
Test Description Number(s) below refer to the step number(s) on the Diagnostic Chart.
this is all the info you need to diag
It is normally a bad sensor
9 out of 10 times
it runs fine no miss or hesitation
It will run ok the computer will ignore the sensor when it is bad
the only way you know you have a problem is the check engine light
also its throwing one more code po502for the speed sensor. but i was driving home and heard something grind in the transmission and the speedometer quite working.the transmission shifts fine .could this be a broken cable or the speedo gearing in the transmission .what would the speed sensor affect not working
speed sensor would affect the trans shifts
More than likely a gear problem or bad sensor
would need to remove it and check it out
any other questions?
you mean like bogging at take offs
shift hard and not make shifts
could cause a bog on take off also the cam sensor could do that as well
not really to much problem shifting it a manual 5-speed
The cam sensor tells the computer were cyl #1 is to fire the injectors
then you will not feel a problem from the bad sensor
could cause some drive issues
need to repair both codes and see how it drives if it is bogging down

thanks for the accept
