On many engines with distributor less ignition systems and sequential fuel injection, a camshaft position sensor is used to keep the engine's control module informed about the relative position of the crankshaft. By monitoring cam position (which allows the control module to determine when the intake and exhaust valves are opening and closing), the control module can use the cam position sensor's input along with that from the crankshaft position sensor to determine which cylinder in the engine's firing sequence is approaching top dead center. This information is then used by the engine control module to synchronize the pulsing of sequential fuel injectors so they match the firing order of the engine. On some applications, input from the camshaft position sensor is also required for ignition timing.
The camshaft position sensor may be magnetic or Hall effect, and mounted on the timing cover over the camshaft gear, on the end of the cylinder head in an overhead cam application, or in a special housing that replaces the distributor (in the case of some of the GM applications). Operation and diagnosis is essentially the same as that for a crankshaft position sensor.  

Re  check the wire harness and the sensor installation to the camshaft sensor in Bank #1 which is where the #1 cylinder is. Good luck and hope this adds some light to you question, keep me posted and be glad to help.

SOURCE: What are code p0342 and p0431

342 is camshaft position sensor and 431 is your catalytic converter may be getting weak. If this was my car I would do the 342 code and see if the other code for the cat comes back. Tell the shop fix the camshaft sensor. If the sensor is bad your car can still run but its possible you could set a cat code because
of it but on the other hand you cannot set a camshaft code because of a bad cat.

SOURCE: I have a Hyundai 2000 Accent GL. Problem, engine

If these conform to the generic codes:
P0342 - Camshaft Position Sensor A - Bank 1 Circuit Low Input
P0460 - Fuel Level Sensor A Circuit Malfunction
If you wish to make this a DIY repair (shouldn't be too difficult) I recommend you locate a service manual to guide you but neither Haynes nor Chilton offer them. Check your local library since they occasionally have them available.

Error code p0650

OBD II codes are specific to manufacturers and often specific vehicles. A Hyundai Accent P0650 may not be the same as a Hyundai Sonata P0650 because Hyundai loaded more diagnostic codes into the upscale Sonata.

Check with AZone or similar, they'll tell you the code description, and give you possible suspect causes to check.

Hi I'm having the exact same problem.. I have replaced the MAF, the crank sensor, the MAP sensor everything in my 2001 Grand Prix 3800 has been replaced! I was wondering if you had fixed yours? And I also own another 2000 Grand Prix and took the brand new MAF out of that and it still was still dying. I had to clear the codes to restart. Please help

I punched in code po336 for a bing search,
and it says that it could be
Crankshaft Position Sensor Signal Range / Performance
But it may be for another car.

What was your engine size and submodel? My reference on the Internet didn't have fault codes for your vehicle.

Bad oil smell +O2 sensor reading bad

Please VERIFY!? P034? NOT P0340? My research reveals you are correct.. there is no such code as P034!!!.. there is P0342 & P0343!! Both are CAM POSITION SENSOR codes. Perhaps this MIGHT help (no guarantee).. Disconnect both battery cables from the battery (+) & (-)... touch these cables together for 30 seconds (nohwere near the battery posts)... then reconnect them to the battery... see what happens. There may be 'JUNK' in the computer memory.. this will erase it and set the computer back to 'DEFAULT' RESET condition (that is, if the computer isn't the problem to begin with OR there's some other sensor/component (like the CAT (catalytic converter) which might be burned out and clogged up). Without actually diagnosising this vehicle myself, there's really no accurate way of pinpointing the problem. Hope this is helpful.
