You may have the distributer a tooth off and the computer can not calibrate the timing properly. Set the engine at (top-dead center) at the crank harmonic balancer and remove dist-cap to see if the "DTC" is off. If so, when distributer is out, you will have to use a longer flat head screw driver to reach down in the intake and turn the oil pump shaft to advance it for the re-installation of the distributer as it will turn when threading into the cam gear. Hope this helps.

I put a rebuilt long block in my C2500 5.7 L I'm getting a P1345 code and she's running a little rough. I replaced the cam shaft sensor in the distributer but still getting code


The code is set if the relationship between the crank and cam sensors is not within tolerance. In your case the most likely problem is (and especially since she is running rough) that the distributor was reinstalled one tooth off in either direction from where it should be.

Cam ****** is at 16 and its calling for 0,2 to -2. and when its hot it drags to start and its poping and running rough. has code p1345


With that much mileage everything is worn!

code p1345 which is crank shaft camshaft position error code.

If the distributor moved that is why the code is present. The dis. in these trucks does not control ignition timing it controls injector timing (it is the cam sensor).

I have a 1998 chevy silverado check engine code 1345a what does this mean


Do you mean Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P1345 ?This DTC is a "Manufacturer Specific" code that is defined by GM as "Camshaft/Crankshaft Correlation Error".

It is basically telling you that your Cam/Crank timing is not within specifications.

Possible causes are:

> Improperly installed distributor assembly
> Badly worn distributor shaft or bushings
> Worn timing components (chain, gears, etc.)

Proper diagnosis is required to diagnose the actual condition that is causing this code. If any timing components are replaced, a scan tool capable of reading live computer data is required to check the cam/crank offset PID and make adjustments as necessary.

The specification for Cam/Crank offset is (Zero) 0 +/- 2 and must be checked with the engine running at 1500 RPM.

2002 trailblazer 4.2 4wd i have a code p1345 that keeps returning ive replaced the cam postion sensor and the crank sensor and the cam postion actuator solenoid i just put the cam position actuator...


beleive it or not changing the oil if dirty will solve this code, also found that connector gets oil in it and that also makes p1345 code turn on, open connector and look for oil in it,look at sensor and actuator plugs for oil,the main plug connector is the actuator plug it fills with oil and makes contact between pins setting p1345 code, hope this helps.

I have a 1997 Chevy Surburban with a 350 engine - check engine light came on - code reads p1345 - it only came on when putting another distributer in - the other one was bad. Any ideas? Thank you!


this DTC determines,if the distributor is installed incorrectly,or if there is a mechanical malfunction in the engine. check the following items A loose or missing distributor hold down bolt A loose CMP sensor causing a variance in the sensor signal Incorrectly Installed distributor-1 tooth off in either advance or ****** positions Aloose distributor rotor on the distributor shaft excessive free play in the timing chain and gear assembly.

I have a 1999 gmc 2500 van. P1345 code coming up


i have done this before on these --- the distributer is off 1 tooth.when you pulled out the distributer some times the slot that runs the oil pump moves.so when the distributer go back in it finds the slot but it will be off 1 tooth.
