SES Code P1345 "Camshaft to Crankshaft Position Correlation Fault"

I just hooked it up to the scanner and my book tells me this

" P1345 "Camshaft to Crankshaft Position Correlation Fault""

Is that a timing issue? or a sensor?

Its a 1998 Vortec 5.7L V8

Thanks Warren

That code means that the distributor is not dead nuts on.
The problem is you cant turn the distributor with the engine running so you have 2 choices,
1. Get to a scanner that can actually tell you how many degrees out the Cam sensor is, and then turn the distributor one way or another until you get it to 0 (or close). I think it will accept being within 4 degrees.
2. Trial and error. Turn it a little bit one way with the truck off, turn it back on and see if the light is still there. Turn it a little bit the other way and so on and so forth.

Well, the computer controls the timing, the CMP/CKP tell the computer where everything is firing so it can detect misfires. If it notices that they are out of alignment by too much, it throws the code above.
Yes, it really sucks if you don't have a scanner to be able to tell how far out it is.
