    the thing does NOT have a camshaft sensor and it DOES run. Wound up being a bad #3 plug wire. Thanks, rejakwilson for a steer in the right direction.

You have high Resistance on #1 & #4 plug wires. replace the plug wires with a quality set, and use di-electric grease on the coil towers.

I have a 2001 Saturn SL2 and I have a code that does not make any sense to my mechanic. PO341. Also PO442. Any help or suggestions?????


Hello ihatethiscom: My name is Roger and I will help you. The code p0341 Is for the camshaft position sensor There are several things that can cause the code. A intermittent engine misfire to a camshaft sensor problem. I always look for the simple problems first. A lot of people look at the sensor as being the problem not always so. As for the code p0442 this is a fuel evaporator system problem. This has several options when it comes to finding a solution. As I said try to look for the simple solution. A loose fuel cap can set this code also. A dirty fuel vapor canister or a cracked vapor line could cause the code also. What the code is saying is there is a small vacuum leak to the fuel tank. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix YA. Roger

97 SATURN SC1, WONT GO INTO REVERSE AND GOES VERY SLOW


Transmission is not junk. You need to replace the valve body with a rebuilt one. The cause of reverse not working is because the booster valve cannot create sufficient pressure to get into reverse (reverse requires the most pressure). The booster valve is worn down and the valve body needs to be replaced, rebuilt is the way to go. This is from not changing the fluid and filter every 20,000 -- 30,000 miles to keep gunk from building up and wearing down the valve.

The transmission is fine, don't let anyone talk you into putting another one in, especially for thousands of dollars, NOT THE PROBLEM.

2001 saturn sc2 gets code 341&340 camshaft sensor


if you have high resistance in secondary ign. system (plug wires, ign.coil) this will cause this code to set. make sure you are using a high quality spark plug wire set. not from autozone!!! and denso non platinum tipped spark plugs. also use a diaelectric grease on plug wires to keep moisture out.
