Default What caused p0340?

'98 2.5 RS........Started car, drove 3 miles running fine, stopped car for 10 minutes. Tried to restart, engine cranked, but would not turn over for first 2 tries (approx. 10 cranks per try). On third try it fired up and ran fine. Checked code and showed P0340.....camshaft position sensor A, bank 1 circuit malfunction. Is this a bad sensor, or circuit? Where are these located? What could the problem be? Thanks

Started car today. No CEL, but not firing on all cylinders; I'm suprised this did not give me a misfire CEL. Looked under hood, and coil pack was arcing from the base of one of the terminals, along the housing, and down to the mounting plate. Obviously I'll replace the coil, but does this have anything to do with the P0340. I'm wondering if the coil arcing could have been arcing to the camshaft position sensor last night and interfering with its signal, as this would give me a "no-start" condition. Quite a relief to see that arc......simple solution.......hopefully.

Ask your local suby mechanic. Make sure you use the phrase, "my friend's too embarrased to ask..."
