Default Camshaft Position Sensor, Code 340, Again

Thank you to those who answered my questions about this thing. The
problem is recurring but with the tech dara you provided it is not so
scary. Wiggling the wires and connectors cures it temporarily. There
is a lot of grease and dirt on the back of the block that needs to be
cleaned and then I will check the connectors better, both directly and
with an inspection mirror.

If wiggling the wires/connectors cures it temporaily, then it tells you
a lot. It may simply require a good cleaning. If you remove it for
inspection/cleaning, be careful the engine oil might come out of the
sensor hole. The valve cover gasket leak, usually after 50K miles, is
probably responsible for the dirt/oil on the wires/connectors.

Get a set of FelPro's set with PermaDry gasket and spark plug tube
seals is about $14 online. Some RTV will be needed on the cam plugs
where they meet the gasket.
