- P0340 code what to do ?
- Auto part store only comes up with a crankshaft sensor are they the same ?
- 1998 Nissan Pathfinder Se 4x4
- 3.3 V6 engine ( I believe )
I have a 2002 Xterra with the 3.3L V6 engine. I believe our vehicles are largely the same as they are both in the same Haynes manual.
To add to Xterra+beaver's reply, the camshaft position sensor by itself is not a replaceable item. When replacing the distributor, always buy a re-man'd OEM distributor. Not an aftermarket new distributor; they generally don't last long, can cause drivability problems and many times are DOA.
Keep in mind that some vehicles do not do well with aftermarket sensors. I had to use OEM crankshaft and camshaft sensors (Bank 1 and 2).
They are different sensors
I have a 06 pathfinder, same code. the crankshaft sensor in my vehicle is accessed on the passenger side wheel well. Buy the one that is from the dealer. I bought the generic type from auto parts store, was bad in a few weeks. The manufacturer one has been in there over 1 year. Its a super easy fix, just get the right part.
