What is involved to fix check engine light codes P1361 and P1362 and how much should I pay a reputable mechanic

The code P1361 and P1362 can relate to a TDC sensor failure, the plug could be dirty or you may need to replace the sensor. Here's a walkthrough:

P1362 means the PCM isn't getting a signal from the TDC sensor. The TDC sensor is actually the camshaft position sensor.

TDC is also a Crank Position Sensor, Advanced Auto Parts has them for $70, or you can pick it up from your local dealer.

How do I fix a Interruption in TDC #1 sensor circuit problem on a 2001 Honda Civic? THe code is P1361 and P1362

P1361 is a misfire code, and P1362 is a TDC sensor (or crankshaft position sensor) code. The known possible repair is to replace the crankshaft position sensor. You may have to ask for a tdc sensor as some parts providers follow the mfr's part name.

2002 Kia Optima, Hesitates when I accelerate, have had problems with the belts squeeking and no matter who i take it to or how hard I tighten the belts they loosen again, right now they are not squeeking....

There are lots of reasons. First I would go to an auto parts store and get the codes read. Most will do this for free. The code will help in diagnosing the problem. If you get the codes some are self explanatory and some require a further analysis to determine what to do. They can also clear your codes so you can get a fresh start on the diagnosing process. Things you might try that aren't too expensive are
1. Techron injector cleaner.
2. New plug wires.
3. Check the coils. Also could lead to a new Ignition Control Module. If you get a P0300 code or P030x codes you are in this type of fix. I little more expensive.
4. P1361 and P1362 code may actually be a fuel burning issue and injector cleaner may resolve this.
5. It could be the TDC or Cam position sensor.
6. etc.

If you can get the codes, then bring that info back to this site and there are some excellent experts that can help.

My 2001 honda civic reads a code P1362. what does this mean

P1362 = TDC (top dead center) sensor (1) no pulse.

Reset your car's power control module (PCM or ECU) by turning off the key and pulling the clock/backup fuse for 10 seconds then reset. Start the engine and see if the code returns. If not, it was an intermittant fault and the system is okay--but check for dirty or loose wire connector at TDC1/TDC2 sensor. If the code returns, check wiring to the sensor---if the wiring checks out, replace the sensor.

Code error P1361 Honda CIvic LX 2002 -- What it really means? Appear Check engine light intermitent. In my case after Timing belt, water pump, tensor, oil seals and spark replacement. Car lose power and...

P1361 TDC Sensor Intermittent Interruption (I got this from
TDC should mean Top Dead Center.
It is the sensor that tells the computer the #1 cylinder piston is at the very top. And therefore, fires the spark plug.

Since the maintenance done above, I believe the the timing marks for the timing belt is not lined up properly. Being off by one tooth will cause this problem.

Check engine light comes on upon start up

Yes the shops technician got it right. as per the error code which you mentioned.These 2 codes are usually caused by a faulty crankshaft sensor (P0321) & possibly an ignition module (P1361). When replacing these parts part attention to the female electrical terminals in each connection. They will sometimes "spread" & cause an intermitten open circuit. Check each female electrical terminal with an opposing male terminal. There should be a small amount of "drag" when connecting the two of them. Thanks.Helpmech.
