    There is no cam position sensor on that engine. I got my duaghter a 97
    SC2 6 mounts ago and it was coding a miss fire and a bad cam posotion
    sensor too. It turned out that it was a bad thermostat (engine was not
    heating up properly) and I replaced it and it never coded again.

    The knock sensor is a totally different sensor. It detects engine Ping.
    Is this what they are trying to pass off as a 300 dollar job??? Cuz it
    aint. Please use to further understand what these sensors do.

    THe point I was making in my earlier post, that year engine can
    return codes that are not related to the problem at all because the
    generic codes do not deal with the Saturns well. GM uses a strange
    system on them to determine proper timing. Around 99 they startted
    actually using a cam position sensor. Do not take some codes as the
    gosphel on that engine when using generic error codes
