I bought this for my 1997 Mitsu Mirage LS Coupe after reading a P0340 error from my ECU. After installation (a snap) it has been running great again.

  • Q:

    trying to locate where the camshaft position sensor is on my wife's 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse, I refuse to pay what the mechanic shop wants for such a small job. Need your help to locate it. Thanks, Bob.

      A:

      Hi Bob, with reference to your inquiry on the BWD/Intermotor Engine Camshaft Position Sensor -part# CSS1547, the camshaft position sensor on your Mitsubishi Eclipse would be located at the right rear of the engine under the intake manifold and to the left of the oil filter. You will probably need to go under the car to spot it, it is the sensor with a three-wire connector arranged vertically. But you can take it out from above. It is held in with a single bolt with an eight MM head located just above the sensor. Unclip and remove the electrical connector. Unscrew the bolt with a socket wrench and extension bar. Wiggle and pull the sensor out. For any further assistance, you may also call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

  • Q:

    This isn't a question, but I know that on the Mitsubishi engines that many Dodge/Chrysler models use this is not a camshaft sensor but a crankshaft sensor. Can you clarify this? I'm driving an '03 Sebring 2.4 X engine, replaced my camshaft sensor before.

      A:

      On many engines with distributorless ignition systems and sequential fuel injection, a camshaft position sensor is used to keep the engine's control module informed about the position of the camshaft relative to the crankshaft. By monitoring cam position (which allows the control module to determine when the intake and exhaust valves are opening and closing), the control module can use the cam position sensor's input along with that from the crankshaft position sensor to determine which cylinder in the engine's firing sequence is approaching top dead center. This information is then used by the engine control module to synchronize the pulsing of sequential fuel injectors so they match the firing order of the engine. On some applications, input from the camshaft position sensor is also required for ignition timing. The camshaft position sensor may be magnetic or Hall effect, and mounted on the timing cover over the camshaft gear, on the end of the cylinder head in an overhead cam application, or in a special housing that replaces the distributor (in the case of some of the GM applications like many Dodge/Chrysler models). Operation and diagnosis is essentially the same as that for a crankshaft position sensor.

      I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on locating and how to repair or replace specific parts.

      I have the same car, same problem. Immediately to the right of the engine cover, under the air filter tube.

    • A:

      If you're looking at the head unit, it is directly on the right side, under the air filter tube.

      Signs of a camshaft sensor being bad include engine sputtering, poor acceleration, stalling, and an inability to start.

      A:

      It is possible but it could also be a problem with wires, a coil or plugs. Generally if the sensor is feeding back a problem it should trip an ECU code / check engine light.
