Installed cam sensor, cleared code, would not start after that and code came back

Willey,

The other most common cause for the code P0340 to set on the 2.0 can be caused by a jumped timing chain and that will also set this code. I would start with removing the spark plugs and running a compression test. If the chain has jumped the compression will be low.

would it help to replace crankshaft sensor also?
Nissan Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

No, if you not setting a Crank sensor code its not the problem. I would run the compression test as your next step.

Ok I will check the compression and get beck with you. How low is low? And will all 4 be low?
Nissan Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

All four should be effected and anything less then 100 PSI would point towards the timing chain.
