I know nothing about mechanics for starters so i need help with my 52 Lanos.Bought the car from a dealer who explained the ongoing problem of the check light showing permanently on the dash.Diagnostics showed cam shaft sensor problem.Bought new sensor took it to Daewoo dealer and light came back on within 3 seconds.Mechanic suggested a wiring problem so i went to another garage.They could not fix it and came up with the idea that the wrong cam was fitted on the car.Even then they were not sure.Basically I have a nice condition car which runs terribly.The timing is out so there is little performance.I paid a bargain price because of the problem but would like to get the car running better.Any suggestions?

Hey Travis here is the compleat definition of code P0340=
NO CAM SIGNAL AT PCM , NO FUEL SYNC. YOU CAN TRY THE AUTOZONE LIBRARY FOR MORE INFO. there is more to it than sensor not being there. check the power control moudel.

- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor - Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted - Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection - Faulty starter motor - Starting system circuit - Dead (Weak) battery
