Fix code P0344 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent

If you have a P0344 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent trouble code, read this to understand what it means

When car makers eliminated the distributor they needed a way to know the position of the camshaft and crankshaft so they could fire the spark plugs at the correct time. You guessed it, the camshaft sensor tells the PCM the exact location of the camshaft. In this trouble code, P034a4, the computer is seeing an intermittent signal. That can mean a bad sensor, a missing or chipped tooth on the reluctor ring (depending on the make and model and the technology they use to detect camshaft position), or a wiring problem. Perform the voltage checks in the shop manual before assuming you have a bad camshaft sensor
