I have ran an obd diagnostic test on a 2007 honda accord 2.4l and got codes p0341 confirmed. And P1009 confirmed.... what needs fixed?

wow , no symptoms, car dead, what?
no MODEL< ? what car??????????
stalls, , no engine power, it weak , misfire, ?
or just lights glowing on CEL.
the codes never tell you what is bad, they only tell you the test failed.
like at the Doctors, you have high blood sugar.
he dont rip out the pancreas. he does more tests. same deal.
now lets do yours.
- Faulty Camshaft Position Sensor
- Camshaft Position Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Camshaft Position Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty starter motor
- Starting system circuit
- Dead (Weak) battery
341s never lie, if one pulse in 10 fails, Bam.
not posting cars symtoms first make me fail to help.
i can not fix cars blind, you must tell the full story
it is why more complex than you realizes, EFI is.

next. gen. name is VVT, honda uses VVC.
1009 the FSM covers easy sub test, ever seen and FSM?
VVC failure (this one is even more complex)
Engine oil level (wrong)
- Dirty engine oil (low oil pressure or has blockage to VVC pats)
- Check VTC Strainer for blockage
- Faulty VTC Oil Control Solenoid or circuit
- Faulty VTC Actuator
- Engine mechanical problems (loose cam belt or chain)

in the chase of cam drive, we make sure the cam is not bouncing around. if it is VVT test FAIL !!!! and has NOTHING to do with VVT
the VVT controls cam timing, if its BOUNCHING it Can not.

i did look up your engine because you never stated which engine you have, there are like 3.

know what car?
car MODEL with 2.4L

Be careful, the motor in your car is an interference motor, which means that if you break the timing belt and then try to start it back up, the motor will crush its own valves and damage pistons and who knows what else. timing belt replacement is really cheap compared to rebuilding/replacing a motor. hope this helps. also if you let it idle and open the hood, stick your head by the the timing cover and see if you hear kinda a slapping, ticking type noises. if you do, immediately go to a mechanic and spend the $400-500 to fix it if it isn't cheaper, can't remember what I payed last year. A new/used/rebuilt motor will start around $1800 if your lucky. good luck.

Honda's troubleshooting flowchart shows the following for Code P0341:

  • incorrect timing
  • damaged or stretched chain
  • clogged or stuck open/closed VTC (Variable Timing Control) oil control solenoid valve
  • faulty VTC actuator
  • damaged camshaft position (cmp) pulse plate

Intermittent Engine Error codes p1009 and p0341.

Bad timing chain tensioner or timing chain has stretched causing cam timing to be off. There is a solenoid for the vtc advancement that also might be bad. Get a good Honda tech to take a look at it!

Po341 on honda crv

Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0341 has a generic description of "VTC phase gap".

"VTC" stands for Variable Timing Control. Basically, what the computer is trying to tell you is that it is having problems controlling the variable cam timing in your engine. There are MANY possible causes for this. The MOST COMMON cause is the engine oil level being low or the incorrect viscosity of engine oil being used. also, failure to change the oil at regular intervals can cause deposits that can cause your cam actuator to stick or bind, or your VTC solenoid to stick. Another possible cause is a worn/loose timing chain.

Check engine light on. AutoZone says P1110 is the problem. WHAT is THAT?

P1110 Intake Valve Timing Control Solenoid Error

From what I've read, the plunger within this solenoid gets stuck, causing this error. Some have had success with applying lube to this part, while others have had to replace it.

The VTC solenoid valve is part of the Valve Timing Control System. The purpose of the system is to achieve optimum valve timing, thus improving engine performance.

The system will vary the intake valve timing according to engine speed, and other inputs received from the coolant temperature and throttle position sensors. The ECM controls the position of the intake camshaft, by controlling the oil pressure to the intake camshaft pulley hub. When the ECM energizes the solenoid, oil pressure is supplied to the pulley hub, changing the position of the hub, thereby advancing the intake valve timing.

1 Remove the VTC valve from the vehicle.

2 Using a fused jumper wire, apply battery voltage to terminal 1, and ground to terminal 2.

3 If the valve is functioning correctly, the plunger shaft in the valve should be extended.

4 If the plunger is not extended, replace the VTC solenoid.


1 Disconnect the wiring harness connector from the VTC valve.

2 Using a suitable wrench, remove the VTC from the cylinder head.

To install:

1 Install the VTC in to the cylinder head, by first hand tightening, then using a wrench.

2 Plug the wire harness connector into the VTC valve.

'99 Saturn SC1 with intermittant check engine light P0341

a p0341 code mean cam reference performance, really it means you have a secondary ignition problem,,,,like a bad ignition module
a bad crank sensor
a high resistance spark plugs,do not use bosch platinum plugs in these cars
high resistance spark plug wires,,,i work at the dealer and the first thing we do is replace the spark plugs and wires if that dont work we replace the crank sensor,if thatdont work we reaplce the ignition mondule,and by then your fixed and you started with the cheapest items first,,,i would try plugs and wires and a crank sensor,,,,wires $50 plugs $14 crank sensor $37

Hello DTC P0341 & P0133 very common saturn Codes.You need to check condition of Plugs & wires,If not New Replace All Plugs & Wires,also I would replace the #1#4 Coil for the P0341.For the P0133 Reaplce your front O2 sensor with an OEM sensor,not an aftermarket.

Check engine. scan shows VTC control solenoid valve

Probably. That would be a sign that you're going too long between oil changes. Those filters clog with sludge and that screws up VTC operation. Change your oil. Replace the sensors and clear the codes. Find a local independent shop that has programming capabilities. You don't have to go to a dealer for a software update.
