Ack! Code P 0340 on a 2010 we bought yesterday!
 
My wife bought her 2010 PT Cruiser Couture Edition yesterday from the dealership (used, of course, but has less than 25k miles on her). When she went to start it up after work, she had trouble starting it (started on the third try) then once she started driving the check engine light came on and it went into limp mode. :eek: She got it home and I checked for the error code by turning the key on an off 3 times and error code P 0340 came up. Did some research and learned that it is the cam position sensor. I decided to take her out for a spin to see if I could get it to replicate what it did to my wife and it ran like a champ. Still has the check engine light and shows the error code. Dealer is coming to get it tomorrow. Should I just tell them to replace the cam position sensor, or do you think there is something else afoot here?

Thanks!

Sometimes the cam sensor plug will come loose, if you unplug it & plug it back in..it might fix the problem. Before you do this, it's a good idea to unhook the negative battery cable 1st...this will also erase your code, but if you do have a cam sensor problem the code will come back.
If the dealer is going to pick it up, let them worry about it...I wouldn't mention it to them...there could be another problem & you don't want them not to look.
