Have you had the timing belt changed yet?

Hey, JD. I am having the same problem with the 0340 code. I have changed the cam sensor x3 and still get the same code. Is it possible that the torque of 115 in/lbs is so critical that the sensor will not work properly if not torqued to that reading? If so, that may be my problem as I do not have a torque wrench.

Our PT's do NOT like aftermarket sensors, IF you didn't use OEM's. Harbor Freight Tools have decent torque wrenches for cheap/inexpensive or even E Bay.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks, Hooligan. I will check out harbor Freight for the torque wrench. I did NOT use an OEM sensor. I have been using NAPA's brand. Do u really think that could be the issue here? And thanks for the 'welcome aboard'...

You guys are awesome. I have been fighting this 0340 code for over a year now. It WAS the aftermatket sensor causing the problem. I installed an OEM sensor and I have not thrown a code since. Thanks....

Yeah, it's strange - stock ignition wires are crap, but sensors need to be stock...
