P1078 is the EVT (exhaust cam) sensor for bank1 (passenger side). There are indirect problems that can cause it, but in reality it's almost always a bad sensor. It's located in the back of the passenger side cylinder head.

Hey VStar , as Ive been casually going through reading so many sensor problems , like these cam , crank sensor whatever , fully internalized or just bolt-on outside and protrude into the motor . What in your vast knowledge maybe the key to longevity with these components , notwithstanding QC nor poor assembly ?? Like is frequent , quality , full synthetic oil a significant factor ?
I wonder because in virtually all my vehicles , 235k , 285k ,150k miles I've NEVER experienced faults nor codes on them :crazy:

The OE parts are pretty darn good, but like any part that combines silicon and inductives, they're very sensitive to ground faults. Couple a dicey ground with a bad location that gets little ventilation, problems are almost guaranteed. The older transverse VQ's are a good example, the rear cam sensors fail a lot more frequently than the front ones just because they're buried at the back of the engine and at the bumf__k end of the engine harness. You can't do anything about the design location, but that's why I'm always harping on people to voltage-drop their ground connections. It's the best 5-second favor you can do your electronics in general. I know you personally take very good care of your battery connections, and if you haven't had trouble with your sensors, I'm sure that's a good part of the reason.
