i got that code after a random 20mph rolling burnout for 100'... street was smoking for a week
for me it meant 4 days in the shop because the diesel techs leave early on friday, not there on weekends, order the part (i told them exactly what to order beforehand) on monday, get it back on wednesday. not worth the 25 bucks it costs for a new one. its a dumb little sensor on the outside of the motor. it made starting progressively harder and driving was rough. just make sure you unplug any electronics before going in. i told them the edge was a monitoring unit.

I had the crankshaft position sensor performance code come up. Which uses the same sensor as the camshaft position sensor. I don't have any warenty and ended up by just changing the sensor for $46cdn and now i keep one in the truck.
I had a similar sensor go out on my volvo, basically all it does is monitor the revolutions of the camshaft and reports it to the ECM to help with timing. Normally these are VERY easy to change, most being easy to get to and normally only 1 bolt.

First of all thanks everyone for your posts!! VERY HELPFUL!!
Ok I got the code P0341, and then P 0500...... so I got my new sensor ,,,,, I smashed my hands into the small opening, I got the clip off, I got the screw out... But when I try and back the old sensor out, the flang where the bolt (bolts in) will not screw out because it hits the engine block.... I'm sure it's the block and not the starter..... I'm so close to replacing it, it just won't unthread and it doesn't look like the new one would thread in back in..... The new sensor has a bunch of threads on the end, so I'm guess it threads in and it not just pulled out....
I know I go the right part cause the LITTLE bit I can see..... they look the same. I got the part for Cummins Direct....
