Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Chevy Camaro 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

the car runs fine when it is cool and when engine warms up it dies out. It is giving me a code of P0341 camshaft sensor. I have replaced the sensor and same thing. Also had coils tested and ignition control module tested at Autozone. They did find 1 coil bad and I replaced it. Ignition module tested good. Still the same results. I am wondering if it tested good because it was cool at the time?
Do you
have the same problem?

Does it start right away when it stalls or does it have to cool off

Sorry I was working all day. Check and see if there is 5 volts to the connector that plugs into the cam sensor. If you have access to a scanner also make sure the cam is sending a signal to the pcm. Sounds to me like its a module heating up and causing your stall but lets start here to be sure first.
Also in the future so you know, I am not always online, I usually check my replies once a day, so if I dont get back to you right away im sorry. I will do my best to help you out.

This is a 3 wire plug. White with black stripe- 10.8v
red with black stripe- 9.9mv
brown with white strip-6.72v

I think the pcm is recognizing the cam sensor. I do have a code reader and when I clear the code and go back and check it has no codes set. When I unplug the sensor it does throw a code. All with engine running before it gets to hot and dies out. When the engine does die out with the sensor plugged in it throws that P0341 code

Do you know if the coils are arching on the module? something to look at. disconnect the ingnition module then retest the wires for voltage. make sure there isnt a short to voltage or a short to ground. there should only be 5 volts to the sensor. I think you need a ingnition module or you have a short to voltage. let me know what you find.

Yes disconnect it. Also check the resistance between the connecter and the connector for the module. This will check and see if the wiring is good

The resistance between circuit 633 and ground is infinite. The reading is meg ohms

If you have them both disconnected, and your testing each end of it, sounds like a open wire. Start chasing wires and see what you find

Can you be more specific. I was just testing the resistance on the signal side and the ground side of the cam sensor.

I want you to disconnect the ing. Module and cam sensor and test the 3 wires. Resistance between the connector of the cam sensor and the ing. Module.

The resistance between the cam sensor and ign. Module on all three wires is 1.1 ohms.

Ok I replaced the ignition module and the car runs great. Drove the car for about thirty miles and no stalling issues. But the check engine light came on. I scanned it and it is giving me a code of P0336 crankshaft position sensor. No driving or cranking problems though any advice?

Just to further reply to my question. The rpm gauge is a bit jumpy as well
