It started as code p0301 so I replaced cool on cylinder 1 and all spark plugs and boots since it was such a big job having to take intake off to access cylinders 1,3, &5. Then had to go back and fix camshaft position sensor bc of one wire pulling loose. And still getting code p0300 along with p0171 so I replaced pcv valve bc it had a small leak and I'm still getting codes p0300, p0141, p0355 and also this code c342d. Please help...
My car has an automatic transmission.
C342d relates to faults in the throttle position sensor (TPS) or the idle air control valve (IAC). Check the wiring to the TPS sensor and the IAC valve and test for high resistances which will show up as voltage drops. P0355 can be caused by wiring faults but also by a faulty IAC valve so the IAC should be looked at closely. The TPS sensor response can be tested using a real time scan tool. With regard to the other codes, two common denominators across those codes are oxygen sensors and vacuum leaks. To resolve all of these codes, a real time scanner is necessary to look at actual engine operating parameters, for example the response of the oxygen sensors, the integrity of the heater circuit, and, with regard to vacuum leaks, to see if such leaks perhaps show up in measured fuel trims that are read off of a scanner.
