I have A 2003 dodge ram.

I went to auto zone and they pulled up the code for the bad sensor

The truck will start and run, But if you trun it off , It will take about 1 to 2 hrs to start again.

I need to know the location of this sensor.


Thanks
ALABAMAJOE

Downloading the manual is best as detailed above. Location of the Camshaft Position Sensor also depends what engine you have in your truck. If you still need help what motor do you have?

Our current gas prices*;

* For those of you that are interested calculation based upon current UK gas price of 87.9 pence per litre and a conversion rate of US$1.89 to GBP£1.00 along with the fact that our gallons are bigger than yours!! If this doesn't interest you please eradicate it from your mind

No, the oil filter is on the left side (drivers side.) The cam position sensor is under the right side (passenger side) cylinder head pointing straight down, just as slammed1 posted.

The Prob. I had was:

No I did not do any thing to the truck, It just started this the other day.

1 - I could start only if the engine was cold

2 - If it was hot I had 1 to 2 hrs before I could start it again

3 - If I steeped on the gas It would cut out. ( spit and sputter )

I found the Prob. by turning the key switch on and of 3 time and read the code ( P0344 ) CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR.


Thank to all the Info I found on this site

When I read the reply I ASSUMED he meant "oil filler" so I was hoping we were on the same page.

Glad you got the problem fixed,lets hope it was the right diagnosis.

I've got a buddy with a 4.7 truck who needs a cam sensor, is the sensor hard to get to? About how long did it take you?

I'm assuming the code will eventually clear itself?, Or is there a way to clear a code on these trucks without using a scan tool?
