Thankis for the location of the c/s sensor. I need the location of the camshaft position sensor. I get error code on my 2003PT TE #P0344. Thanks

So its a cam sensor that you are looking for!
Its at the back of engine located at the rear of the cylinder head and valve cover.
Let me know if you need a pic
good luck

Thanks. Yes, I'd appreciate a picture of the location and electrical connectors. I've heard that the wires burn and separate. True? Joe

Thanks for the location of the camshaft position sensor. I've been driving for about 2 weeks with the same error code, but the performance isn't so terrible. MPGs haven't changed (around 20-28), but have only lost some smoothness in acceleration. Can any damage be done if I don't change the sensor? Does the error code mean that there's something wrong with the camshaft?
Thanks for your advice. Joe

The PCM look for the crank and cam sensors to sync the injectors with the firing order
may I suggest replacing the sensor as soon as possible
(its the sensor and not the camshaft )

I followed your advice, ordered on the WEB a new CPS, installed it in half an hour, and all codes were cleared. The PT runs great now! Thanks for everyone's help. Joe
