2002 Mitsubishi Lancer ES 4 Cyl 2.00L

Transmissions & Drivetrains

What car is my transmission from?

My car has code p0340 coming up for the camshaft position sensor, and it occasionally has symptoms that it is bad, but NO place I go has the sensor it needs. Someone at Advance was thinking that maybe the transmission was from another car similar to this one. Maybe when they made this car, they used a leftover transmission. It's an '02 Mitsubishi Lancer with 245,000 miles, and runs good otherwise.

P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction = note that none of the possible issues or repairs have anything to do ith the transmission.

Before replacing the cam position sensor itself, there are items to be checked first.

A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
the camshaft position sensor may have failed
the PCM may have failed
there exists an open circuit
the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:

Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
Diagnose/replace the PCM as required
