Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Mitsubishi Lancer 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles
My car has been sputtering the past few weeks and when I was driving it the other day it just cut off and won't start back up. At first I thought maybe it had something to do with the fuel but we eliminated that possibility. I then tried to see if I am getting a spark. I was getting a spark from 2 cylinders but not the other 2. I then thought (since I have 2) that possibly I would need a coil. I replaced the coil and it's still not firing up. I had my friend hook up his computer to my car and he said that the code was PO340 and that it said (pending) cam sensor. My friend is a mechanic but he doesn't have a scanner. My question is: if I replace the cam sensor should this fix the problem I am having or are there any other possibilities and what (pending) means?
