Q: My truck is losing power on take off and throwing multiple codes

asked by on

My truck threw codes P0021, p0174, p0345, p0349, p0171. After putting in 2 vct selenoids, a new cam positioning sensor and the fuel filter I still have a check engine light throwing the same codes. Please help as I am going crazy!!!

My car has 170567 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. The codes listed are indicative of lean conditions on both banks A and B, as well as issues with the camshaft position sensor for circuit B. A lean condition at both banks can be caused by many things. A few things I would check are the fuel pressure, the fuel pump, and the fuel pressure regulator, to make sure that they are all in good working order. The codes related to the camshaft position sensor indicate that there is an issue with the circuit. If the sensor has been replaced, then it may be possible that the wiring or connector are the source of the problem. I would carefully examine the wiring and harness connector to the sensor for any signs of damage, wear, or corrosion. If you need to have this diagnosed, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the loss of power and codes to make the proper repair.

Q: codes p0174, p0302, and p2A03 read on code reader.

Q: P0022

Hi there. The Lucas oil stabilizer should not have caused any issues. The P0019, P0022, P0300, P0305, P0307, and P0308 codes are all related to bank(2). The camshaft position out of sync has, more than likely, led to the misfire...
