Default p0341

Hi all, my 2000 A6 2.8L is running like crap! I'm getting the p0341 code along with miss fire codes. I bought a new cam sensor and it did nothing. Checked voltage at the sensor connection. 4.8v with the car off. Checked the reluctor wheel. I could see no damage. Funny thing, I was looking at codes and symptoms on the OBD site & my symptoms are identical to code p0340 but I haven't ever gotten that code. Any ideas what else it could be?

Default It is what it is, and nothing else

If your code is this: P0341 or 16725

Camshaft Position Sensor "A" Circuit Range/Performance Bank 1
or Single Sensor

G40 - Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor
Camshaft adjustment servicing
Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor checking
Ignition components removing and installing

Then that is what your dealing with, STF the code.

Anyone else out there with any ideas? Not ready to spend $200 to have it towed to somewhere so they can charge me $100 to figure out the problem.......or not. Guys, I'm not stupid just not a machanic. So anything HELPFUL would be nice. Thanks in advance.

P0341 AUDI - Camshaft Position Sensor
The camshaft position sensor signal sent to the Engine Control Module(ECM) during the first few seconds of engine cranking is out of range.

P0340 AUDI - Camshaft Position Sensor
The camshaft position sensor signal is not detected by the Engine Control Module(ECM) during the first few seconds of engine cranking


Both have the same causes:
Possible causes
- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
- Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty starter motor
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery

Thanks Tenspeed, brand new battery so that is out. It fires up almost immediatly . That's probably not it. My voltage is close to 5v(4.87 I think) at the connection. Seems to run just fine after i get it reved up. Though I'm afraid to drive it because after it warms up it sometimes will start up but idles at about 400-500 pm and doesn't respond to the throttle. I have to push it and pop the clutch to get it going again. And it is really hard to operate the gas, brakes and clutch at the same time! Takes some really talented feet. Lol. Do you think my brand new CPS is bad?

I recently had this same code. My intake cam was off one tooth. Previous owner changed cam adjuster pads and had it off. I would check cam adjuster. Look to see if pads are on top and bottom.

Rough idle, p0341, cyl 5 and 6 misfire. Started right up and would run rough. Exhaust smelled of raw fuel. I was not so lucky as cyl 5 had a bent middle intake valve. You couldn't really see it was bent until it was chucked up in a drill. The plastic pads where all chewed up and ended up blocking most of the oil pump pick up. Dropped the pump to inspect and it looked perfect at 190,000. I replaced the bent valve and it runs great.

It's possible but much more likely the CPS was improperly installed. Take it out and look at it...the little tit has to fit the cam.

Yes these two codes might be similar to a degree, however they are not.
If the ECM throws a code "like the one he has" its because their is a known fault predetermined by the description of the one code only!

Look back in the forum with CPS codes to see the members who have multiple cps codes and there are many, different problems and diagnosis with multiple "known" codes.

More confusion begins when all these related codes start flying around a problem that is not present, sensible probabilities might suggest low power, bad connection and on and on, but not for a code that doesn't exist.

There is a reason one cps code is present.

I'm glad you were able to resolve it, however you mentioned nothing about a cps code outside of your miss-fires and related codes?

Did we miss something on that post.
