The sensor itself is approximately $30 from any autoparts retail outlet. Typically however You will need to replace the whole syncronizer assembly if you are having the chirping issue. The whole assembly typically costs around $180. Stay away from the Dorman Part. It WILL Fail. A1 Cardone is known for being a direct Motorcraft Refurbished unit.

The camshaft position sensor is located beneath the wheel on a 1998 Ford Taurus 6 cylander Dohc.


No, a Generation 2 (1992-1995) Taurus/Sable Windshield will NOT fit a Generation 3 (1996-1999) Ford Taurus/Sable.

Ford Taurus - fifth generation - was created in 2008.

P0340 means Camshaft Position Sensor Your cam position sensor or the wiring leading to it has gone bad. It will cause occasional rough running and hard starting until it is replaced. If you live in a county that does emissions testing, your car WILL FAIL unless it is fixed.


If you are talking about a 3.0 (12 valve), it is on the camshaft position synchronizer at the rear of the engine under the engine control wiring harness, below the thermostat housing area. If you are talking about a 3.0 (24 valve), it bolts to the front of the timing cover with an 8mm bolt.


Does the camshaft position sensor drive the oil pump on a 99 ford tauraus 3.0 engine? Ford Taurus: 3.0 liter 12 valve engine, 1997 - 2006. The shaft that is used to rotate the camshaft position sensor also rotates the oil pump. The shaft is driven by a worm gear on the camshaft. The position sensor end of the shaft can fail and poor engine performance results, if the entire shaft quits rotating because of a gear failure the oil pump quits rotating (pumping) and the resulting lack of engine lubrication causes the crankshaft bearings to fail and the engine will stop (permanently) within seconds.


THE CAM POSITION SENSOR IS LOCATED ON THE DRIVERS SIDE. THE INTAKE MANIFOLD IS CUT OUT WHERE IT SITS ON TOP OF THE ENGINE BLOCK.IT IS BLACK IN COLOR AND HAS 2 5.5 MM SCREWS THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE


as soon as you put stress on the engine, (even letting out the clutch with no gas) it'll stall. plus it'll idle rough.


2000 SEwhat year do you have, and do you have a 3.0 liter 12 valve engine, or a 3.0 liter 24 valve DOHC engine?12 valve
