It will crank, but it will not stay cranked. Put it on a tester crankshaft position sensor. I need to know where it is located?
Do you
have the same problem?

Thanks 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 it is a cam sensor that you are looking for!
It is at the back of engine located at the rear of the cylinder head and valve cover.
Let me know if you need a picture.
Good luck

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

Thanks for the location of the camshaft position sensor. I have been driving for about two weeks with the same error code, but the performance is no't so terrible. MPG's have not changed (around 20-28), but have only lost some smoothness in acceleration. Can any damage be done if I do not change the sensor? Does the error code mean that there is 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.
(It is 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

Engine light comes on, car sputters, diagnostic machine says it is crankshaft position sensor. Is that hard to replace? And where is it on the engine?

It is on the right side of the engine block use picture included. I do not know how hard it will be to get to, as it does not give me any time on replacing it.
