PT Sage – Cured?

It’s back! This time the Chrysler folks brainstormed and then took the advice that Dan posted here in Comments. They replaced the camshaft and crankshaft sensors. They kept the car and drive it all over. One guy took his life into his hands and drive it to Burlington. It kept on working. So far so good. But then it never stalled for them in the past either.
I drove the PT home in the rain and it was great. Just like old times. Have to wait for a warm clear day to really test it out. But I feel positive.


  1. I have to admit I’m going to be a little sad when it gets fixed. I know what a pain its been for you but I’ve really enjoyed following along with your PT Saga.

    It’s boring when everything works right! Come on, Paul, where’s your sense of adventure? 🙂


  2. How is your PT Cruiser? Any more stalled? I have similar problem, and I might try to replace its camshaft position sensor as well. Let us know.

    So far so good with both the crankshaft and camshaft senser replaced. Of course, I haven’t done a weekend’s worth of driving in warm weather yet so the jury is still out.
    I may drive to Raleigh tomorrow just for a test.

  4. i have same error code 340 camshaft sensor. when i pulled sensor out it was oily.. is this sensor supposed to be bathed in oil or supposed to be dry?

  5. same with mine mine was oily and i have to replace it i dont know if it is cuz the oil but it wasnt getting its signal to the computer
