    Default P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor

    Hello everyone. I apologize in advance for bothering you and appreciate your time. After recently getting my 99 Sentra SE-L up and running from being in hibernation for about a year (dead battery) I had a check engine come up. After getting it read at AutoZone they said that it was a P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor error. Has anyone experienced this? Any tips on resolution?

    Currently the car runs but very poor and sluggish acceleration as well as the engine does seem to shake.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try clearing the code and see if it comes back. The sensor is in the distributor.

    Thanks for your quick reply squirlz. I did have AutoZone try and clear the code as well as when I took it home I disconnected the battery overnight and after hooking it back up the service engine light came back up. So the camshaft sensor is within the distributor housing?
