Default Camshaft Sensors

1997 Saturn SL1

My service engine soon light came on after warming up my car yesterday (did not come on after running car cold later in the day) It's running OK. I went to Advance Auto Parts and did a code scan - it came up with

Camshaft Position Sensor A
P0341

Is this sounding right guys? Something I can easily replace/fix on my own?

Thanks

MM

I think you need a tune up. I had the same code along with a misfire code. If the light goes out I think that means it's just temporary but maybe your plugs are spent. It will probably come back. A tune up worked for me.

First thing I'd do is change the plugs if they haven't been replaced in a while. That's a $5 fix if it works and new plugs are a good thing anyway if it doesn't.

Since it hasn't been said yet, these cars have no cam position sensor. That code, then, points to an ignition problem, e.g. plugs, wires, grounding of the coil packs / module.

Hah just replaced a head, didn't see a cam sensor.

Saturns have a crank sensor used for timing and emissions control. The new plugs/wires idea is a good one. Air filter? Just get a tune up.

Volvos and Fords and some Chryslers may use cam sensors, but the Saturn PCM engineers were smart enough to figure out that when the crank is in a given position, the camshaft will also be in a given position, and they simplified life a little bit.

Gotta love 'em :-)
