Computer problem
2000 BMW Z3 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 57000 miles

Service Engine light came on after engine was running great. Engine missed a few beats and stalled in a parking lot when hot. Then set code. Code P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction. Check on internet, most people said, change cam sensors. Installed both new sensors with no problems. Cleared codes and road tested. Car ran fine at first, but after a hot start in a parking lot and a stall or two. Service light reset and code P0340 came up again. I can clear code but after short time of running and stall or two, seems to reset same code.

Got the sensors on line from Bavarian Autosports.
They did look and fit great.
My only worry is with electronic parts from on line companies, hard to return and part quality. The way this is playing out, could it be a hot short?
