I have a 97 Saturn SC2 (DOHC) and have been getting this error. I've also read in a few posts that there isn't any camshaft pos sensor on the 1.9L engines, and when looking at part stores they don't list the camshaft positioning sensor as one you can buy; what is the truth?
If there is a sensor, where is the best place to pick one up?
On the 97 saturn sl1 , 1.9 models the is no cam possitioning sensor. this is a generic obo code. it is a fuel timing issue. most probably a knock sensor. this controls polarity for firing 1 and 4 cylinders, and controls burn vs explosion.possible that a couple othe sensors are envolved, but start here. needs attention quickly, can lead to some very expensive repairs.

error code PO 342 was on the low input. Now the code you are getting is on the problems on the high output for the same Camshaft position sensor. Something "now" is putting out too much juice and can only assume it has to be in the ICM (ignition module) or the coil. If not qualified to do the readings yourself, you will have to take it to someone who can do it.
could be faulty fuel pump or stopped up fuel filter.if you are getting fuel,the idle air control valve stop working, or you have faulty crankshaft sensor and a camshaft sensor,need to code scan vechicle first to see what sensor is faulty.
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.
I had the same problem with a 97 sc2. The fix for my car was the temp sensor that controls the extra fuel when engine is cold it didn't sense that the engine was warmed up and added extra fuel flooding the engine.
I assume you mean the DOHC off of an sc2.......and yes it is but at the same time you will have to get a 97 DOHC SC2 engine computer. Best bet is a used parts dealer and or junkyard. However if you do not mean an entire engine swap and just want specific parts then no.
