    I just replacet the rotor and cap but I dont think that I moved the distributer . Could the rotor just be a bit off ? If it was would'nt more than one cylinder be off ? Fuel injector issue ? Maybe I didnt get the plug wire on all the way ?

2.4l Why are there recurrent DTCs?

There are recurrent fault codes because the diagnosis of the cause or causes of the problem was, in part, incorrect and because many people work on the basis that........
XXXX code = replace part ABC
YYYY code = replace part DEF.

Pulling up fault codes and then replacing parts without a proper diagnosis of the cause of problems is not sound practice. The items you replaced may indeed have needed replacing but this does not mean that there are no other issues that need to be addressed.
Misdiagnosing problems, replacing functioning parts and then wondering why the warning lights and fault codes are still being generated is not uncommon practice.

Ready smog p1345 1998 Chevy Blazer

Code 1345 means there is a problem with the alignment between the cam and crank sensors. The computer can not determine correct cam timing by the data coming from the sensors.

99 GMC suburban 5.7l P1345 wont start/misfire

The primary intent of this code is to detect slipped camshaft timing. Have you checked the camshaft timing? Your symptoms indicate you are a tooth off.

1999 GMC suburban is markin PO 1345 code.

That is a cam to crank position correlation code. I understand you can adjust it by turning the distributor until the value is right. You need a scan tool to see the value and check it each time you adjust the distributor.

I have a 98 chevy z71 5.7 350 vortec, i have a p1345 code that stays on i clear it and as i restart the truck it comes back on, the truck runs great and has a small delay when starrted.. what can/do i need...

1345 is cam and crank sensor correlation its mainly the cam sensor going out, also the delay start that also trigger a camsensor code they call it excessive crank time check the fuel pressure that is capable of setting a cam code (1345) If fuel pressure is good (55-60 psi) expect to replace the camsensor you might as well do the crank sensor heres a nightmare on this code it can set if the distributor is off one tooth and yes these distributor have high failure rate

Code 1345 pops up why

This code is an indication that the synchronization between the Crankshaft and Camshaft is off.
Can be caused by a bad crank position sensor or bad cam position sensor or worn (stretched) timing set. The MOST COMMON cause of this in chevy engines is a worn distributor drive gear.

Code 1345 came up. I already replaced wires, plugs, cam, crank sensors.

have you tried setting the cam sync.its basically setting the timing but without a timing need a scan tool to do it.rev engine and hold at 1000 the cam sync on the scan tool.should be 0 degrees.if not loosen distributor bolt and turn distributor till cam sync reads 0.also you may have a worn distributor.

Trouble code 1345 crank sensor/camshaft sensor correlation

I had this same P1345 code on my 1998 GMC K1500 5.7 for about 2 years. Each time the code was erased, the "Service Engine Light" came right back on with the same code. I tried replacing the cam sensor, but that didn't solve it. I had the timing adjusted, it was out -13 degrees. After adjustment, the "Service Engine Light" went off, but only for a short time. Adjusting the timing is just a temporary mask on fixing the real problem and eventually you will run out of adjustment. I read about this same problem on another forum and someone recommended changing the distributor gear. So I checked the gear and a the teeth were worn. Replaced the gear ($35 part), readjusted the timing and the light has been off ever since. Apparently the gears in 96-99 are soft and wear enough to throw off the timing. This code is telling you the crank and distributor are out of sync. So before you start buying sensors and other misc. parts, try the distributor gear if you are getting a P1345 code.
