  • code

    turned on my car check engine light came out so i went and got my oil changed.. asked the guy to pull the code and he was cool, charged me $10 for the change.. anyways code was 341 and the powertrain light was lit up.. i looked in the tech section and theres no 3 digit codes.. he said it was the timing belt or the timing belt sensor. anyways.. i guess im asking for you to verify the code.. and the light went out so do i need to do anything about this?

    Our cars have a timing chain, and theres no sensor for the timing except for the crankshaft position sensor. Just giving general information, sorry i dont know the code.

    There's a guide on differentracing.com that should be able to help you.

        NO NO!!!!!!!! the coil packs dont mean its the problem. it could simply be a spark plug or wire. it could happen to be a damp start up causing a misfire. i threw the code every morning in winter.

        yes its a code pertaining to a camshaft sensor. there is no such thing. the fault can lay in plugs, wires, coils, ignition module, damp weather (on some vehicles), just plenty of little things. so start out small especially if wires/plugs havent been changed lately. but if the car has a cold air intake or warm air intake, this time of year can cause such codes as mine always did (also did on very damp summer days).

          but that s usually what gets changed most often so change the coil packs
          people have come in to the shop talkin about how they changed everything 3 times and all they did was put some cheap wires and plugs and an air filter in it
          when nine times out of ten its the ects coils module or most commonly a bad wire
          but that damn camposition code im 98% certain that if i read your entire post i would ask if theres any mods on this particular car which i havent seen in person

            check ur plugs and wires and might go ahead and look at ur coilpack towers (The things that stick off for the spark wires.) might have some corrosion. And that code doesnt not mean ur coilpacks need to be changed... stop giving false info.

                plugs and wires are typically the cause for that code as a couple ppl have already said. Change those first. They are much cheaper then coils. If that doesn't work, then check into the coils or a possible ign module.


                Sidenote: wtf does an ects have to do with anything in this thread?

                  IDK...I was wondering that my self.I was hoping it was one hell of a typo.

                  WHen you change the plugs, just get some stock NGK's, don't get anything platiunum or +2/+4.

                  Also, get the $0.99 packet of dielectic grease to keep the weather off the terminal posts. If you find some corrsion on the tower/terminal post, simple clean it off it some 220 grit sand paper or a stiff wire brush...then put your grease on the coil towers.

                      if you havent changed the plugs and wires in awhile, go ahead and change them if you want. Or you could just wait and see if the light comes back on. If it does, change them then
