P0348 Replacement camshaft sensor question


Recommended Posts

P0348 Error code on Boxster S. 2003, 36,000 miles

 

On the old camshaft position sensor the round end of it was metal, the replacement is entirely covered with plastic. I understand that the it is and updated sensor, is this enclosed in plastic OK?

 

Thanks!

Can't honestly say I've ever seen an all plastic unit, the OEM units had metal tips:

Do you get a factory replacement or an aftermarket unit?

It is a Bosch replacement, I don't have the number here at work.

 

I'm sure Bosch knows what they are doing, but I have not seen one configured like that.  The sensor itself is a simple Hall effect style, and some other makes use all plastic housed units.  I'd give it a try and see what happens.

I was getting the P 0348 code, the check engine light would go on, then go out again, it did this several times, it seemed to go back on when revved around 4-6000 rpm. I replaced it with Bosch part number 0 232 103 092, it seems to be working fine, will have a 500 miles test this weekend.
