P0340 and P0344... Camshaft Sensor Problems... need help.

About a week ago my "check engine' light came on while driving home... 2004 3.5L.

I did the ignition key dance and pulled a code P0344... Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent. At this point I did not notice any problem with the car. I purchased a new camshaft position sensor and made plans to replace it Saturday morning.

Later that week the car bucked and was limiting at 2500rpm and had a hard time starting... intermittently, and it was now pulling both a P0340... Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit
and P0344.

I swapped out the sensor and all was fine for a day. Now it is pulling a P0340 code. (GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR).

The connector to the sensor look fine, the sensor was installed with the .030" spacer paper in place. The car did run fine. Now what???????

I have read on the forum that it can be the "crankshaft" sensor??? How does this relate and why am I not pulling crankshaft sensor codes????

Any help from anyone that has been down this road would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like your car went into "limp mode". There was a recall that affected my 2003 Concorde 3.5L last year. It involved reprogramming only and was supposedly related to the common camshaft position sensor issues on these cars, or so I was told. Did you receive a notice about this?

You were correct in leaving the paper spacer on the new sensor. I ended up replacing both the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors on my Concorde before the problems went away to stay.

first off,, if your getting the sensors from like auto zone , O'reilleys etc,,, your throwing away $$$

the recall mentioned above has caused many problems,, from what all ive read, its almost better not to have it done
go to your local 5 star chrysler dealer, and get the cam and crank sensors and be done with it

I know they put a hold on that recall due to the problems with it, and then started it up again. Haven't some reported better luck with it since the re-start?
