Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

What engine is in that?

4.7 V8

The main one I would be worried about is the 335 cam signal fault, I would check the cam sensors and test those for any issues, make sure its getting a good wave on the lab scope and all parameters are correct

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
0335 is a crankshaft sensor fault and not a camshaft. Camshaft is 0340 I believe. Not impressed with this response
