    does not mean the sensor is bad. a code never identifies a bad part, just a failed system. before throwing parts at it, get it checked to confirm.

    Thanks for the reply, I've scheduled an appointment with the dealer since it is still under warranty.

    Vehicle Application: 2004 Sorento 3.5

    Customer Concern: Code P0340, replaced crankshaft position sensor, when vehicle gets hot it stalls.
    Average Reported Mileage: 73000
    Tests/Procedures: 1. Check the timing belt alignment.

    2. With the key on, check for battery voltage at the camshaft position sensor on the Green wire, ground of less that 0.05 volts on the Black wire, then start the vehicle and scope the camshaft position sensor signal on the Blue wire, if the signal is erratic and the power and ground are good, the tone wheel may be loose or damaged or the camshaft position sensor may be faulty.

    3. With the key on, check for battery voltage at the crankshaft position sensor on the Green wire, ground of less than 0.05 volts on the Black wire, then start the vehicle and scope the crankshaft position sensor signal on the Blue wire, if the signal is erratic and the power and ground are good, the tone wheel may be loose or damaged or the crank shaft position sensor may be faulty.
