    I went to Autozone to get a SES code from my 98 SL2. The scanner read
    P0340 which, is the camshaft position sensor or circuit. However, when
    I tried to purchase a sensor, the computer said the car didn't have one.
    What should I do when I'm told to replace a sensor my car doesn't
    have? Any help would be appreciated.

    The car has about 80k on it now. At about 70k I did replace the plugs
    and plug wires.

    I went ahead and bought a new set of plug wires and it took care of it
    right away. The ones I bought just a short time ago must have been

    Saturn 1.9's use "compression sense", bad plugs and wires will throw
    that off. Always check a new set of wires with an ohm meter. I like to
    wrap my wires in wire looms to keep them from rubbing through on metal.
    They usually out last the plugs that way. Hopefully you used "double
    platinum" plugs (ac delco or autolite my pref) since it is a "waste
    spark" system. That will give you another good 80k miles of use out of

    ....Well, if I were web-savvy, I'd probably do a Google or Yahoo search. If
    I weren't web-savvy, I'd probably ask my Saturn dealer's service department
    personnel. But, that's just me. :)
