P0341 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit
« January 28, 2018, 06:44:06 »
2012 Hyundai i30 Elite (1.6 Auto)
90k's. fully serviced and only recently out of warranty

I noticed my check engine light very occasionally came on, typically after driving the car a bit harder.  I bought a ODB2 reader and I can see this error.

:link: OBD-II Trouble Code: P0341 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Range/Performance

I'm not stressed as it's just an alert saying timing wasn't perfect (plus the fact it only occurs when I hit it hard but I thought I should ask. 

My fuel economy does suck on the car (9L/100) and I have had the occasional hard start issue (push button doesnt start, I need to press it again).  The car is due soon for a big timing belt service soon.

I don't think it's just a broken sensor (unless the sensor is causing the car to have occasional hard start issues).

Any experienced this one before?

Hmm that sensor actually provides important info to the ECU both regarding start and continous running and incorrect info will affect starting and general fuel economy.

How does one typically determine if the sensor is faulty or if the sensor is correct and the timing of the engine isn't correct?

@noes_oh  Have had this with weak CVVT oil control valves. Easy to replace. First, check oil way to the valve is clear (gauze filter can be clogged). More likely to be this than a sensor fault.
