2.0 D Camshft sensor/reluctor

Post by Beanmasteruk » Wed Jan 06, 2021 12:30 pm

So I've noticed my cam shaft reluctor ring is moiving, giving the P0341 code. Already had new chains/tensioners etc etc, software update and camshaft sensor replaced, but tech has read up that the cam shaft reluctor ring can move, low and behold the one in mine is moveable too. Managed to 'adjust' it so EML doesn't come on, but with engine vibrations it will slip around again. I'm told camshaft will need to be replaced as the reluctor ring cannot be prchased seperatley. I'm wondering if there is a way to hold it in position externally. Has anyone a pic of this reluctr ring and its housing? They're a press fit from what I've read on other posts

I'm currently going through the same problem but not had any work done yet apart from replacing the position sensor but code still remains p0341-92 ,have been told it could be the reluctor wheel moved which then i'll need new cam shaft or could be stretched chains but wont be able to clarify until further inspection. The car starts first time every time and has no rattles and runs fine, I'm just waiting for a quote to come back for the worse case scenario.

Same here. I got an amber EML and P0341 code about a month ago. No weird noises or performance issues as far as I could tell. Jagtech in Nottingham have confirmed that the chain(s) is/are stretched and I now need replacement chains and exhaust cam plus reluctor/sensor assembly and ancillaries. £1960 all in. It's a 2.0d with 78k and full history. I bought it only a month before the EML appeared along with an AA Protect Essential warranty - which I'm already starting think is useless.

I would be interested to know if the fault codes you received are a permament feature on your dashboard or intermittent.
My XE has covered over 80k miles and in the last 18 months or so I have been getting the engine management light coming on and the cam pos,n sensor fault codes. This happened as recently as 4 days ago where I have the light on for two days before it disappeared again. The last time this happened was about 5000 miles ago where it featured on the panel for 4 or so days.
No problem with car performance and I have not taken the car to a dealer to be told one of the expensive repairs is necessary.
I can't believe its my timing chain or reluctor having a fault and then rectifing its self.
I am aware of others on this forum who have had this fault code and replacement of the sensor has only been a temporary fix.
I would love to know if the failed timing chains / camshafts / sensors removed by the dealers have actually been returned to JLR for investigation and confirmation of the fault?

My garage (independent specialist) has confirmed the chain has 5 or 6 mil more play than it should have. They are confident it needs new chains + cam, though I've not particularly challenged them. I trust them. My (amber) EML appeared about 4 weeks ago and was constant. The garage confirmed it was a new rather than historic code. The car's now in bits at the garage while my warranty provider and dealer ignore my pleas for assistance...

Haven't used it in the short time I've had the car; the light was on, but it had no effect.
I'm due to collect it on Monday; new chains, new exhaust cam, new ancillaries and new clutch for good measure.
There seems to be a level of distrust of stop-start on here; is this due to a perceived extra load on the chains or is there something more sinister going on?

Sorry to hear of your problem.

I've got the same problem. Startet a month ago with 95.000 KM on the clock. Seams like a build in feature from Jaguar for the car repair shops reading so many complaints in this forum about this problem. What worries me from reading here is that dealers often don't know exactly what's really broken and just guess. I was at a independent for first check and they changed the sensor with no luck and then said i should go directly to my Jaguar dealer. Because of bad experience during warranty i do not trust them and think that they will not found the issue from start and start guessing. For the moment i have no performance problems or some unusual noise from the motor so i decide to wait until i got a noise from the motor that could relate to chain problem or something broken even if it could be risking a major damage. For some that interested i use Start/Stop but it works only in a small summer time slot which is a little bit weird and it is automatic.
