Cam Position Sensor....

Truck runs fine, pulled (TWO) P0341 (CPS) code - Cam Position Sensor Performance - and have lost the tacho a time or two.

2001 5.9L

Deleted the code, runs starts fine.

Anyone replaced these yet?
Related to the tach?
Where is it located on the Cummins?

Did a search for the P0341 came up with nothing, so decided to post here.

I am completely new the the Cummins engine so dont roast me.

Thanks

I think it is located behind the starter on the drivers side.
No one here will roast you. We are a friendly bunch mostly. Remember a question never asked is a question never answered.

Cam sensor is located under the injection pump.

It a extremely tight fit but I've heard of several people being able to change the cam sensor with a few standard hand tools and a lot of patients...:Thumbup:

1 10mm bolt holds it into the timing case, tight but easy enough. I have run into the occasional hex head bolt also, either 4mm or 5mm.
