Rough idle after replacing...

Rough idle after replacing distributor/cap/plugs

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the rough idle intermittent or consistent?

It through the P0340 code the other day, from what i gathered the the camshaft sensor is built into the distributor. after changing this morning now it barely wants to start and idles terrible once started

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2003 Frontier , 3.3L

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Frontier yourself? What have you tried so far?

So far i took it to a mechanic where he changed the crankshaft sensors, and a few other sensors that i cant think of off the top of my head, now after a 1000 dollar bill for him im trying to do it myself

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Ive changed plugs and fuel filter also does it cost to talk to the mechanic
