Question about 2005 Saturn SC1
P0341 and P0404. Are these something easy to fix?
Should I seek a professional?
The P0341 code is a code indicating that the cam position sensor circuit is out of range or not performing properly. The P0404 code indicates the EGR is out of range or not performing properly.
Those codes seem rather odd to have together. If the cam sensor was bad I would expect some driveability issues or possibly even issues with getting the vehicle started. The EGR could cause some idle issues.
I just cant get past that those codes seem so unrelated, they are for two different systems. If you are not experiencing any driveablity issues, I would clear the codes with either a scan tool or just disconnect the battery for a few minutes. If they come back then yes, I would have it looked at. You could try replacing the Cam position sensor, and see if that helps, but the EGR is a bit more challenging and would be a more costly item to replace.
Hope this helps out.

sensor is important, it keeps
your pistons from burning up due to detonation(the pinging you hear on hills)
it should be an easy fix though. It is a one wire circuit, and could just be
disconected, or a bad sensor, and its not hard to replace. I would see if the
seller will take care of it for you though....
