Cold start fine, warm start rpms shoot up then die.


Asked by Aug 12, 2015 at 08:41 PM about the 2004 Nissan Murano SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 nissan mutant, recently it stalled out on me while backing up into a parking
spot and my check engine light came on., so I went to advanced and had them check the
code well it was a p0340 for a camshaft sensor A. Well I replaced both sensors because I
found a good packaged deal and now my car will cold start fine but when it gets warm it'll
start and the rpms will shoot up and die. But if I warm start it and give it a little gas it'll idle
fine. Drives fine both ways. Any suggestions what it could be? All are appreciated.
