Trouble code P0341 help.

Hello and thanks in advance for any help.

I have a 1995 S10 Blazer with a 4.3 Vortec, and I'm getting a P0341 cam sensor code I need help with.

Blazer will run until 188 degrees F and then spit cam sensor code out, it's always 188 degrees when it sets.

I have checked the wiring by doing continuity checks and checking ground, power etc... and all checked ok. I also replaced the cam sensor.

I cleared code with obd II Actron scanner that for some reason links with this obd I compliant system, but my Gen Tech will not link up so I can't get any live stream.

Anyways, I was wondering if anyone knew if the coolant temp sensor could possibly cause this code, or perhaps the ICM ?

BTW I have the late model 95 with the flat dist. cap.

Thanks,

Gumby

You replaced the distributor...correct?

Yes, and I double checked that it was on the 6 on dist., and also looked at flat cap to make sure it was pointed at correct point where #1 terminal is, which is across from where the wire is.

Did you make sure your PCM cam adv was + or - 2* from 0

Not sure I understand your VCM cam advance setting question.

You can adjust the CPS, you will need a scanner to do it, and someone/thing to hold the throttle around 1500-2000rpm.

Re: Trouble code P0341 help.

I might have to bring it to a shop since I don't have a scanner that will read live data.

Thanks for the help,

Re: Trouble code P0341 help.

I looked up on setting the timing to plus or minus 1 or 2 from center, and it can't be done on this year Blazer. It has set timing with a roll pin on dist. and can't be moved.

So it looks like I'm back to looking for electromagnetic interferance.

Thanks,

Not timing the distributor. Its adjustment of the CPS.

Re: Trouble code P0341 help.

Are you sure ? I have looked at the cam sensor and it looks like it is just set in there, with two small pins to hold it in place in the back, and two screws. There might be some room for movement but not much.

Sorry, I don't mean to question you, but I've been pulling my hair out on this thing for quite some time.

With that little bit of movement, how bad could it affect the running of the engine ?

Thanks for the help,

Sluggo
