I pulled this code off the computer and then changed the cam sensor with a new one then cleared the code but it came back and the engine is running the same The car will not get out of its own way. When you push the gas it just wants to stall. I have to rev up the engine to get the RPM up to get it to go. I am thinking it may be the fuel injectors. I have changed the fuel filter, and put in injector cleaner but it is still running the same. I have changed the plugs and wire prior to this problem but it does not seem to idle really rough so I don't think it is that. I do have a high amount of miles on the car, 139000 so I am thinking this could be the issue. I have also changed the timing belt prior to this. The car was running fine but just started this issue.
Do you
