P0341= Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Performance. The number one cause of P0341 has been that the distributor was removed and installed... but not synchronized correctly. Yours rebuilt Correct? It was removed. You'll need to synchronize the timing marks on the distributor and the crankshaft pulley/ timing cover. You'll need to use a repair manual (or a Google Search) to find out how to install the distributor correctly. Otherwise if its bad Read copy & paste url: http://troubleshootmyvehicle.com/gm/4.3L-5.0L-5.7L/how-to-test-the-cam-sensor-2


Could be they are out of sync, they have to be really close to matching. Did you make sure it was on TDC on number one and put the distributor in on exactly number one. Any deviation can result in the problem your having. Sometimes the dealer may need to resync them, I have only had one GM that I could not get to resync with the unit I had, but he dealer got it in no time. After you get it redone you should consider a reprogrammer unit so you can get the most out of the engine you now have.




P0339: Check the wiring to the sensor - could be a pinched, corroded or shorted wire or connector. Also don't rule out the new sensor ... anything is possible.


I think you need to use a multimeter on each crank sensor wire as it likely has a break in it, may have to disconnect the battery while testing them and check for open circuits and move the wires around to see if values change or stay the same, look on net/youtube for directions for checking for shorts with a multimeter.
