Can’t clear P o341 code

Can't clear p0341 code
My car has an automatic transmission.
Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
A P0341 for your Pontiac is a camshaft position sensor problem code. This can also indicate a problem with the ignition module. These systems can sometimes "cross-indicate" since they are both timing sensitive. In the absence of driving symptoms from this code, I would recommend having a Check Engine Light is On Inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

How to Identify and Fix Common car Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced mechanics :

Trouble code P0341 is set whenever the camshaft position sensor sends an inconsistent signal to the powertrain control module. As a matter of fact, this code frequently appears while an engine is running or during extended cranking periods.
P0341 code refers to a problem with the camshaft position sensor (CMP) signal on Bank 1. It could be that the signal coming from the CMP is not matching, not within the expected range, or not timed properly with the crankshaft position sensor`s (CKP) signal.
The trouble code P0341 is set when the camshaft position sensor (CMP) signal is out of expected range or if it is not timed properly with the crankshaft position sensor (CKP) signal.
A camshaft position sensor can`t be reset. It either works, or it doesn`t. And, when it doesn`t, it has to be replaced. You`ll know you`re having camshaft sensor issues when your check engine light is on, the car has difficulty accelerating, or is stalling.
The code P0335 is defined as “Crankshaft Position Sensor “A” Circuit Malfunction.” The engine control module (ECM) logs DTC P0335 when it`s unable to detect the crankshaft position sensor (also known as the CKP sensor.)
What Does Code P0019 Mean? P0019 definition: The correlation of the camshaft and crankshaft positions on bank 2 is incorrect based on the intake camshaft position sensor. Repair Urgency: Fix this code immediately (same day if possible) to avoid internal engine damage.
Trouble code P0341 should be diagnosed and repaired as soon as possible. Not recommended, however, you may drive your vehicle while trouble code P0341 is present unless the engine stall or stumbling is is severe enough to hinder proper vehicle operation. Erratic engine speed may be noticed.
P0341 causes

A defective reluctor wheel mounted on the crankshaft position sensor. A stretched timing chain (indicated by a rattling noise) or a failed timing chain tensioner (causing the timing chain to become loose). The timing belt or chain jumps a tooth.

Reasons for failure of the camshaft sensor can be: Mechanical damage. Break in the encoder wheel. Internal short circuits.
Slowly accelerate the engine to 4000 RPM (or indicated RPM for your vehicle). Hold RPM until engine speed drops back toward idle. Release throttle immediately once procedure is learned! Once the variation values are learned, the ECC will return engine control to the driver.
Engine Idles Roughly: A rough idling engine could be caused by a failing camshaft position sensor. This issue is more evident when the engine is idling. Hesitation: Hesitation during acceleration is a common issue that you may experience with a bad camshaft sensor.
NOT PERFORMING A RELEARN PROCESS

In rare cases the engine may misfire or go into “reduced power” or “limp mode” especially under high RPM/load situations Additionally, omission of the relearn process could cause the vehicle to be unable to pass an emissions test due to incomplete or failed misfire monitor.

Mass Air Flow Sensor

The Mass airflow sensor or MAF is one of the most crucial sensors used in automobiles. The MAF sensor is located near the air filter and monitors how much air is flowing into the engine.

Code P0340 indicates there is a problem with the electrical wiring of the circuit attached to the camshaft position sensor. This issue can result in the display of a multitude of other codes that relate directly to your vehicle`s camshaft. In addition, your powertrain control module (PCM) could also be damaged.
Can I change the camshaft position sensor by myself? Undoubtedly, yes. Generally, using your car`s basic maintenance handbook, you can replace the camshaft positioning sensor. Nevertheless, you should be familiar with its appearance and location within the car.
A failing camshaft position sensor begins losing its ability to quickly transfer data. Mismatched fuel delivery and ignition timing, even if off by a few milliseconds, will cause your vehicle to sputter, accelerate poorly, lack power, stall or even shut off.

The code p0753 is not clearing after i replaced the solenoid. Could it be the engine wiring harness
ANSWER : Hi there. Two things that you should know. First, most error codes are triggered by a failure of the electrical harness; and not the sensor itself. Second, replacing the electrical harness is rather simple as long as you have clear access to the connections on both sides. One thing to consider is the code reader you’re using to clear the code. Most "readers" will download primary fault codes and clear some of them; however a professional code scanner is often used to download secondary trouble codes and is better suited to delete them. You might want to have a professional mechanic complete check engine light inspection to verify that the codes are reset and deleted from your Ram.

I have a Code P0601 on the PCM. I replaced the PCM, and now I have a code P0118, code P0123, and code P0193.
ANSWER : Hi there, the short answer to your question is no . A PCM with a P0601 (which is a memory module error in the PCM) cannot reliably retrieve codes for the codes you list (P0118 – coolant temp sensor, P0123 – throttle position sensor, P0193 – fuel rail pressure sensor.

Most likely, the P0601 prevents the PCM from getting any codes from the engine sensors. The memory module error may cause in data corruption for collected sensor values, lose of data over multiple sampling periods, or failure of the data collection to work at all. Replacing the PCM was a necessary expense.

If you need assistance with the "new" codes, I would recommend having a Check Engine Light inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose the new error codes and get an accurate assessment of the repairs needed.

Why do I keep getting a P0101 code in my 2011 Nissan Sentra
ANSWER : Hello. If you are continuing to get the same code then the engine needs to be checked first for any vacuum leaks. The slightest leak in the intake tubes or any of the vacuum hoses or gaskets will cause this. I usually will do a smoke test to find the issue. If there are no leaks then you may have a defective sensor. I do not like to use re-manufactured MAF sensors. If the sensor is known to be good then it may be a circuit issue, which is rare on this vehicle. If you need help with this, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to you to [diagnose why the check engine light continues to come on] https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/check-engine-light-is-on-inspection

EVAP Small Leak Code P0442 Lit MIL. Code cleared, has not reappeared. But, Diagnostic tool still shows Emission Related DTC’s
ANSWER : In order for all the monitors to clear you will have to do a lot of driving to see if it clears. The last two to clear take highway driving at a steady speed to clear and may take a couple times to clear or set a code if it cannot pass them after the testing has been done. The oil dipstick tube being loose will not cause the code you had. Keep driving the vehicle normal and it should pass all the monitors soon. I recommend having a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the codes related to your Check Engine Light and diagnose the relevant systems more thoroughly in person.

Can i retrieve CEL code from car … forgot what code it hade in my car .. put headgasket sealer and i erase the code ..
ANSWER : Once a trouble code is erased, it cannot be retrieved. The engine controller does not have a "recycle bin" like they have on Windows. If the car still has a problem, the code will come back up after some driving. However, the controller will not turn on the CEL until it has seen the malfunction on two separate "trips." A "trip" is a driving cycle where the car is started cold, driven until it is fully warm and through a certain number of accelerations, and shut down. So you might not see the CEL for a couple of days. As for the "head gasket sealer," I wouldn’t hold out too much hope of that solving a problem. At the very best it might put off the symptoms for a short while. If you need help interpreting codes that come up, or solving a head gasket issue, contact Your Mechanic. They can send a technician to your home or office to read the codes on your car and help you decide what to do.

It threw a code 21 , throttle position sensor bad code. i replaced it and the code went away but i still have no spark.
ANSWER : Hello and thank you for contacting YourMechanic. The problems that you are encountering with your vehicle, could be caused by the harness to the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) or the computer itself.

Check the harness to the TPS for any debris or any corrosion. Hook up a paperclip to the harness and turn on the key. Use a multimeter and check for voltage at the pins of the harness. Make sure that the ground on the sensor is grounded and has no resistance. If you find that the harness is having too much resistance, then I recommend having the main engine harness replaced. If you have replaced the harness and still have the same problems, then the computer will need to be flashed or replaced.

I recommend having a professional, like one from YourMechanic, come to your home to diagnose your car’s no start condition before replacing any parts.

Service engine warning, MAF code and O2 sensor code, along with check suspension light are turned on
ANSWER : Hello, it sounds like you have quite a few things going on. I am going to do my best to break them down for you.

First if the engine is very loud when idling and the belt has already been replaced, there may be an issue with the tensioner or idler pulley.
Next, the Navigator is known for needing service to the air suspension system as it gets up in miles, the most common causes of these are the air struts themselves have failed, or one of the air lines has a leak.
Lastly, if the O2 sensor and MAF are continually coming back after the sensors have been replaced, the most common cause would be either an exhaust leak or a vacuum leak.

Qualified technicians such as the ones at YourMechanic will be able to diagnose these issues and recommend the best path to repair, starting with a diagnosis of your warning lights.
