As expensive as the parts are, I would only recommend changing what is faulty.

Yes that would do it.
Someone would need to test the sensor and the wiring to see if the sensor has failed.

I have a 99 merc mounteneer v-8 avd got it smogged and 2 codes came up 1st camshaft Position Sensor "A" Circuit 2nd Systen Too Lean


You could need an oxygen sensor reference the too lean and the camshaft sensor is one on top front on the engine, however have the alternator checked, if there is a short inside the alternator it can cause these codes to come up, if the cam sensor was bad it would be running rough or not at all, check your alternator out first,have the code cleared, then start the truck up and unplug the alternator let it run a few minutes and reread the codes if nothing comes up then replace the alternator, it can still have proper voltage output but still be bad, most parts stores can put there computer on the truck for free.

I have a 1997 Chevy cavalier Radio LOC. I changed the battery this morning now the radio is LOC. Can you help?


My dealer wants $85 for the code. Another dealer - 2 hrs away - wants $50. This looks more like a GM money-maker than a security feature.

What are code p0342 and p0431


342 is camshaft position sensor and 431 is your catalytic converter may be getting weak. If this was my car I would do the 342 code and see if the other code for the cat comes back. Tell the shop fix the camshaft sensor. If the sensor is bad your car can still run but its possible you could set a cat code because
of it but on the other hand you cannot set a camshaft code because of a bad cat.
