Chrysler Repair/09 PT Cruiser Stalls and Hesitates


I need instructions for P0340 because the repair shop said today that they replaced crank shaft position sensor.
P0340 is the code for the CAMshaft position sensor not the CRANKshaft position sensor.
Please send me the pages for the P0340 procedure so I can give it to them or someone else to fix my car.

I will do that now. I do question whether you did have a crankshaft sensor code before as normally these sensors fail rarely and for both to fail at basically the same week is unlikely.
But watch your email.
I am sending the basic pages to replace the sensor. If for some reason that doesn't work and the wiring needs to be checked or some other possible cause let me know and I can send the further 8 pages about those details.
Please rate and nominate me again if you believe I deserve that.
