The dash does a self test on startup, and if a SMD was faulty, it would say "LED fail" in the display where your mileage is.

To me, it says that whoever sold you this car couldn't solve the problem your having and simply taped over the SMD for the EML. Tut tut.

The weapon of choice for concealment was black permanent marker.
Used nail varnish and a flathead screw driver to get it off.
Disappointing...

Re: Camshaft position sensor error P0340 + melted airbox!

It gets better. Now I can hear a high pitch ringing noise when above 35-40mph.
First Fiat and probably the last. Anybody want to buy it?

(Now I can hear a high pitch ringing noise when above 35-40mph.)

from what area of car?


why get rid?
just have it sorted.. it will work out cheaper than buying another car.

my punto was a p.i.t.a to start with but now everythings sorted on it its prooved to be a very reliable car,

faults with cars are nowadays fault of the last owner scrimping and scraping
not the fault of the car,

good and bad in all makes.

Re: Camshaft position sensor error P0340 + melted airbox!

OK been away for a few days and I'm back now. The high pitch ringing sounded like from the front of the car / engine bay area. I don't hear it all the time. Another thing I noticed was that the oil level was practically empty, strange since it had an oil change a not too long ago. I looked underneath the car and there's a slow oil leak that's leaking on top of the gearbox which is why I didn't notice it on the floor after it being parked. I topped it up with but the ringing continued. I haven't heard it for a couple days now.
I still have the camshaft position sensor error and pre cat lambda error so still need to check the timing.
