Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500
I have a 1998 chev silverado it blew the head gakets so i repaced them now the idle is at about 1700 and its running rough its giving me a code #1345 camshaft to crankshaft position correlation fault any sugestions would be apprieciated thanks
It sounds like the distributor is not clocked in right and it needs to be set properly. There is a mark on the distributor housing that the rotor should be pointing to when the engine is on top dead center. This static timing is all that matters and the computer will be able to control the timing as long as the ignition rotor is in that position when the engine is at top dead center.
1. Place the engine at top dead center.
2. Look under the distributor cap and find where the number one terminal runs under the distributor cap, and then match where that position is on the distributor cap with the distributor housing, and it should match up to a mark or a notch on the distributor housing.
3. With the engine on top dead center the ignition rotor should be pointing to the mark or notch that is on the distributor housing, if it is not then loosen up the distributor and turn the distributor until the ignition rotor is pointing to the mark or notch on the distributor housing, the engine should now be static timed.
If you have any high idle problems after the distributor has been properly set then it will be from a vacuum leak.
I hope that this information was helpful to you in any way.

It might be that when you reassembled it that something is wrong with the lifters.. did you label everyone and put it exactly in the original position? very critical that this be done because of the different wear on the camshaft lobes. all components should be put in exactly in there original positions. this is just a thought.. maybe someone else can come up with an easy fix for you.
