P0340 CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR A-BANK 1,

1996 Toyota Camry

Engine Performance problem
1996 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 159000 miles

Can you please give me an idea on what might be the problem with my car, given this code.

I was driving and the " Water Light" came and the car turned off. After, I tried to turn it back on, it would not start. The way it sounded, it seemed like the " Starter" was not igniting. Could it be that I need to replace the starter or would it be something else?

Thanks

If the starter was not cranking, it can cause the code so you would have to rectify this first.
