This answer was rated:

i have a 1998 nissan maxima i replaced all the coil packs and plugs and still have the p1320 code but it was running ok yesterday it started running rough and now i have the p0340 code it still starts but runs rough how do i go about fixing it and getting the codes to stay off

Jay :

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.com

Jay :

What brand plugs, and where did you get the coils?

Customer:

i cant remember come from autozone

Jay :

Well, the plugs need to be NGK spark plugs.

Jay :

As far as the coils, you need to use factory coils. After Market ones never work.

Jay :

I have been dealing with the P1320 code since 95 and and the only thing I have found that repairs it

Jay :

is replacing all 6 coils with factory coils.

Customer:

where do u get factory coils

Jay :

If your use after market coils the internal resistances are not the same as factory

Jay :

You would need to get them from the dealer

Customer:

ok what about the 0340 code

Jay :

That is a cam sensor code

Customer:

yes it is

Jay :

So that may require the cam sensor to be replaced.

Customer:

where is it located

Jay :

but also, do not get this sensor after market

Jay :

Front timing cover. One second I will get you a image of it's location.

Customer:

ok

Customer:

ok thanks
