Can anyone tell me the severity of changing this part. I got this code this
past Friday (P340) took the car to my local AutoZone for a free diagnostic and
they told me it was a camshaft positioning sensor malfunction. I picked up he
part that same day ($12.99) and have located it on the car but haven't had a
chance to replace as of yet, hope to do it today, just wanted to know if the
engine was in any type of severe jeopardy of major damage or even minor damage.
Here is the procedure for replacement:
Disconnect battery ground cable.
Disconnect the engine control sensor wiring from the Camshaft Position sensor (CMP sensor)at the connector.
Remove camshaft position sensor retaining bolt from the LH cylinder head.
Make sure camshaft position sensor mounting surface is clean. Make sure that the camshaft position sensor O-ring is in proper location on camshaft position sensor.
Install camshaft position sensor retaining bolt. Tighten bolt to 8-12 N.m (71-106 Lb-In) . CAUTION: Do not overtighten camshaft position sensor retaining bolt or damage to the camshaft position sensor may occur.
Connect the engine control sensor wiring to the camshaft position sensor wiring connector.
Connect battery ground cable.
