Default p0340 CPS circuit malfunction

ok folks,

finally got my bluetooth obdII reader that hooks up to my nokia e71.
its brilliant!!!!! i can check 18 diff gauges,
throttle position, fuel consumption,
common rail pressure
torque generated!!!

so i found that the problem im having with starting is the cam shaft position senser circuit has a malfunction.

Ive seen a few youtube vids. the sensor seems easy enough to change.
do you reckon i should try it? a mechanic is gonna charge me at least $150 to change a 40 buck part that is really a 30 minute job.

has anyone had any experience with this????
im pretty sur eive read it somehwer but i cant find it now.

Depends what year and engine you have..
Replace it is thing but timing it after may require some more tools..

That makes a big difference. We didn't get a diesel in north America..

latest update! ick!

So it seems that its all related.
bearing noise in idler pulley assembly.
poor starting.
crap fuel economy.
replaced old fan belt which was missing a rib.
it seems the rib has somehow gotten into the timing belt assembly, caused a momentary jam in which my timing belt has
jumped 4 TEETH and sheered a cam pulley tooth.
how it was still running and fine i have no idea but hey!
now i have to wait for parts from melbourne, not perth cos suzuki has such a fantastic well stocked service department. thanks suzuki!

You're a very lucky man that your engine is still in one piece... Phew!

mate i am praying! the stuff i've been reading: damaged pistons, covers, cavitys, crankshafts, cylinder heads, bent valves.

so far the recommendations on line have been if thats the damage its cheaper to get another engine

what i dont get is how my car was still running. I did 600km's in it the day before. didnt miss a beat after its little start up chug. and the warning light (only level 1 MIL) was only eveyr second start. I'll be interested to see if i notice a huge improvement when its fixed.
engines arent supposed to run or should run like sh*t with even one tooth slipped on the belt but this had 4 and a sheered pulley, out of alignment injector pump. is that a promo for the F9q engine or a concern? who knows!

ok so the verdict:

car is running ok again! starts fine. new cam pulley. new timing belt assembly. a service. and surprisingly it didnt break the bank. but it did chew all the money i had aside for a front bar. sigh.
