No the sensor will not settle your problem. The sensor is the Crankshaft place Sensor for code P0335

So I uncovered someone saying shot cleaining within the distributor with carb cleaner to check out if that will clear the code. Other than that, i really need to replace the entire distributor one part gone bad? If it also is bad. Vehicle runs fine. Even the 0920 code is because that the tranny and it shifts and also drives very well.
there was no oil in the distributor. Pce it the end anyway. Drive 100 yds and the 0340 is back... I"m prepared to provide up.
Man, you should download the Engine Control company Manual for her vehicle. Trouble code P0340 refers to your camshaft position sensor. The P0920 is most likely trigerred by 0340.The camshaft sensor is the most basic to replace cuz the camshafts space on the head unequal the cranksahaft which is in ~ the bottom of engine block.The critical carburated engine car I had actually was 20 yrs. Ago, but I doubt the camshaft sensor is within the carburator. You average 2000 Altima is carburated?, and not FI?The method to clean your trouble code(s) is v a OBD2 Scanner. Because you come up through the trouble code, i assume they were retrieve with a scanner. You have the right to use the very same scanner to clean the code(s).

Thank girlfriend for your input benny however you"re method off uneven everybody on this forum and anothe nissan forum has actually it all wrong. The codes can be uncovered all over the net. And also i expect you space correct the the 0340 is resulting in the 0920 but i dont think so. The 0920 is valve unit v sensors the is part of the transmission and also isn"t a cheap or straightforward repair. This code come on ~ draining and also refilling a gallon that tranny fluid. Usually a flush can cause harm so i opted for just a drain. The camshaft sensor is in reality inside the distributor and is not available as a seperate part. I believe you room speaking of the CRANK tower sensor. The 2000 altima is not carburated. The way I read and also clear password is directly from the ECU. It"s located in the footwell nedearteassociazione.orgt to the gas pedal. Eliminate the kick plate and then remove the sticker that states warranty void if removed. This reveals a small screw. With the crucial in position two, rotate the screw clockwise to avoid and earlier and the engine light will flash the codes. Turn the screw the same means again and it will reset the codes.
