Queston On Camshaft Position Sensor

Hey fellas.

I Just replaced the PCV Crankcase valve and hoses... what a pain. Now I'm throwing a P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor. I'm thinking that during my re-assembly from fixing the PVC I may not have reconnected the sensor (I'm not entirely sure I disconnected it, but I did disconnect a few sensors) I have been driving it today only because I didn't know I had that problem since I did the PVC install last night. The car is lagging and sometimes stalls probably because it is in limp mode. My questions is, would my car still start and run even if I didn't re connect the sensor?

Sorry if this has been answered somewhere.

Domo arigoto,

I did the same thing with my exhaust CPS. The engine started ok and ran near normal, but the CEL came on. It was just the plug not fully seated. The intake may be harder to get back to; not sure.
Engineers do it with a torque wrench
