Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement - With Pictures - 02 Deville
The good old SES light came on, ran the onboard diagnostic program and discovered the car was throwing the code - PCM 0340 Camshaft Position Sensor.
Car kind of started stumbling a little bit when I tried to start it.... So I ended up turning to Ebay for a new camshaft position sensor, got one sent out and it didn't work...
So I ended up going to the dealer and paying the $105 for a new OEM unit... Also picked up a new electrical connector that plugs into the camshaft position sensor as the old one was weathered significantly $35... deville 4 by atomic912s, on Flickr deville 5 by atomic912s, on Flickr
Arrow points to the coolant tank, remove the two nuts holding it in place, remove one plastic bolt, and unplug the electrical connector from the bottom. deville 2.1 by atomic912s, on Flickr
Carefully twist the coolant tank off to the side and out of the way. Once it is out of the way it is fairly easy to access the camshaft position sensor!! deville 2 by atomic912s, on Flickr
Remove the 10mm bolt that is on the housing of the camshaft position sensor, sensor should just pull right out, remove the electrical connector from the sensor. deville 3 by atomic912s, on Flickr
Look over all the wires for frays and damage, plug the electrical connector into the new sensor, put sensor back into the block, insert 10mm bolt, put the coolant tank back together...
This was a really easy fix, if you can change your own oil, you can do this - I did it today with a broken knee in about 1 1/2 hrs. ....
Good luck and hope this helps, the dealership prices are borderline illegal, so this will save a little coin!!
