2.0D 180 R Sport Camshaft position Sensor issue PO341

Post by Nick900 » Wed Jul 29, 2020 6:54 pm

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone tell me where this is located on the engine. I have started to randomly see this code on my 2015 with 25K miles. I am thinking in the first instance will just replace the sensor. if that doesn't work will seek Jaguar support.

Thanks in advance

Nick

Replaced the sensor today. Fault cleared briefly but returned. No loss of power only sign there might be a fault is when stop start is engaged and it seems to take a few more turns to restart.

It can be turned off on a longer run and tends to stay off but keeps coming back. Car drives just fine.

Any thoughts anyone?

Thanks

Nick

I thought the cam shaft position issue required a software update to fix?

I hope that's the issue.

I had the car in about 3 months ago to try and resolve a battery issue. They said they completed updates then but I am not sure they would have done this. I cannot see any recalls showing for the car and not sure if a software update for a sensor would show up on Topix under recalls?

Thanks

It would not show as a recall or a Field Service Action, but there would be a Technical Bulletin.

Time to go with fingers crossed until I can get into the dealer and hope that its not a camshaft issue or timing chain, has only covered 25k!

Runs fine so hopefully it will be okay.

Thanks

Found this old post by Vespa....

There was a service recall for the camshaft position sensor around 12 months back. H027 was the code and was valid under warranty for TWO years only (dated August 2017). That should still have you well in the warranty with luck.

If the car is 2015 it wouldn’t be covered by warranty though? If it was 2 years from the date of the publication (regardless of age of the car), August 2017 would still mean that the 2 year period has passed by far?

I’ve got a PO335-31 on my 2015 2.0d at the moment, which is “Crankshaft position sensor circuit” Which I think is related to when the battery went flat and not this same issue (but hence the reason I am interested, just in case)

Its getting slightly worse to start at the the moment! Makes me think its not a sensor or software issue. It does run fine and accelerates as per normal. Local dealer said there were no updates mentioned on their system for H027 but is booked in for an expensive diagnostic on Thursday after which I am sure they will say it needs more time being diagnosed or a camshaft / timing chain despite running fine!

I will keep you posted.

Regards

Visit to the dealer today. Confirmed the car had the latest software. Tech removed the camshaft position sensor and advised the gear ring that has the signal for the sensor can move.

Conclusion, engine needs a new exhaust camshaft because the reluctor ring [I think that's what he called it] that provides the signal for the ECU has moved and is a press fit from the start.

Cost would be £1000 parts £1000 labour.

Feel quite sick at the moment. Car currently on 25K I have owned it since 18K!

Tech mentioned he had had to do this repair on the Ingenium Engine so many times before but not for a while as most were done during warranty, but as mine is such low millage its now out of warranty.
