ECU error code P0340 in 1996 nissan Altima
\015 Car intermittently began to die, as if it was running out of gas, so I suspected a fuel pump starting to go out. Determined that no fuel problem exists, and got a P0340 error code from the scanner. Car does not start or run at all now. I get fair spark on #1 and 4, with weak and (very) intermittent spark on 2 and 3. Cap and rotor are new and no oil is leaking from the distributor. This error code is "camshaft position sensor circuit". \012Question: is this sensor a replaceable item for this make/model or does it require replacement of the entire distributor? I have heard yes and I have heard no.\012Question: this issue occurred rapidly, over the course of a day or two. Does this make it "likely" that it is a component issue, rather than a ground/wiring issue? I know that is asking for the sun AND the moon, but I will take any well-reasoned opinions based on experience and/or knowledge.\012Question: this code says "system". If not the sensor/distributor itself, what are the next most likely failure points in the system, based on the information provided?\012Thank you!\015
