Default DTC P0341 - 98 Saturn SL Manual 120K miles

The SES came on yesterday when I started the car to head home from work. It
was on this morning so I checked it and got P0341.

Google helped me find out that I should just check the plugs and plug wires
and work back from there. If the code comes back, I plan to follow these
steps here :
http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...stpost&t=43380

My question is technical. Given the following series of codes:

P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
P0341 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Range/Performance
P0342 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Low Input
P0343 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit High Input
P0344 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent

How does a "Range/Performance" error differ from a malfunction, input, or
intermittent error?

PS: I do understand that my 98SL does not in fact have a camshaft position
sensor.

TIA

P0340 is when there is no signal to PCM and P0341 is when there is an
incorrect signal to PCM.

P0342, P0343 and P0344 no not apply to your vehicle.

Okay, thanks a lot! I'm just trying to understand what's going on here.

Thanks for the chart, too! I'll use that if it comes back and I have to go
through the TS steps!

I got the same thing on my 98 SL Saturn at 150000 new sparkplug wires fixed
