Jason Poole: Brian, I learned the hard way to replace my camshaft sensor. Your video made it seem a lot easier. Would you happen to have any advise or video on replacing the neutral safety switch, or reverse switch, on a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 turbo diesel?
yokelmike: Thanks for the tips – they helped a ton. I just replaced the Cam Position Sensor in my 2000 Dodge Ram Diesel. 4 tips helped, 1) knowing the tool size 5mm, 2) reaching the screw from above and behind the engine mount, 3) using a flat blade screwdriver to pry out the sensor (more like pop out), 4) knowing the sensor was pushed in not screwed in. When I saw threads on the replacement part I thought that’s going to be tough to not cross thread. I eyeballed the sensor, and then removed the connector from below, reaching up and doing it blindly; because I was so contorted I could see and do at the same time. Pushing back the locking tab was the tough part. Then I did undo the intake rubber hose for better access and I removed the mounting screw by working from above the engine. Then I got back underneath and popped out the sensor with the screwdriver. Installation was easier than removal. Toughest part was getting the mounting screw started. I did this from above working totally by feel since my face was against the block while one hand was on the ratchet and the other on the screw. I cleared the Code and NO MORE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. Thanks!
Michael son: by the starter ?
Ernesto Contreras: My truck ram 1500 wont go over 3500 rpm! Could this be the camshaft sensor?
smittys73: Thank you so much !!!! I'm going to replace mine.
77greengiant: Ok broke the ear off the sensor trying the screwdriver trick 2hrs into this job. This is insane. It won't turn either.
joe b: hi thank for the help can you tell me are the sensor the same front a rear dodge has the short one in both holes when i try to buy parts store has two CSS987 is the long one wont fit in front hole . CSS1060 is the short one will it work in the rear hole by the pumps both part num are bwd thanks
joe b: thank for the help i will give it a try
briansmobile1: Yes I can. Your computer will often times throw a P0341 code when it's actually a crank sensor. It senses the discrepancy between the two. Very common on these.
joe b: i have a 07 5.9. dodge put new cam and cam sensor last year keeps blowing po341 i put new sensor in still get code po341 can you help
briansmobile1: Estos dos códigos tienen que ver con los programas de ordenador no responde. Esto puede suceder si la bomba de inyección de combustible falla.
Yocelin Jiménez: hola tengo una ram 2500 4x4 cummins 24v y el escaner me arroja los codigos P1693 y P0602 tienes alguna idea de que significan. slds
briansmobile1: Timing could be off, there could be wiring damage, new sensor could have an excessive air gap, computer could be bad, etc.
Sites Lauri: Great video, have a question. I have a 2006 Dodge ram 2500 mega Cab diesel. Had codes 0341 and 0340. Replaced both of those and its still pulling a code 0341. Any ideas?

Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
