so i got my first check engine light today, scanned it and turned out to be a P0340 error relating to the camshaft position sensor. From my readings in the forum, it seems that it is a easy replacement. Unfortunately, I am not even close to an novice on this stuff so does anyone have diagrams or pics of where this camshaft position sensor will be on a 1995 Legacy L AWD? Thanks in advance. -Ray

Hi Josh or anyone, would it be possible to circle where the camshaft position sensor is? I have absolutely no idea what to look for. -Ray

The photo shows the cam sensor with the cam belt cover off.
On your engine, its, just on top and behing the black plastic cam covers on the drivers side not far from the dipstick.
The crank sensor is just behing the crank pulley. Find it and then follow the cam belt cover egde to the right and you'll find the cam sensor. It's much like the crank sensor.

You may also want to replace the Crank Position Sensor if the Cam Position Sensor was bad. They are mechanically near identical and critical for engine timing.
