2001 Porsche boxster fault code P1341

I just recently purchased my Boxster (87000 miles) and The CE light came on. Autozone checked it and it is fault code P1341. The car still runs great so I would like to know if it is okay to continue to drive it. Is this an expensive fix? I live about 50 miles north of Greensboro NC and need recommendation on a good mechanic.

Search that code here on the forum, there are a couple of threads about it. Cam solenoid, I believe.

P1341 No triggering of the actuator, active position
nevertheless.
– Short to ground
– Actuator faulty
Triggering of the actuator, no active position – Open circuit in triggering wire
– Open circuit in B+ supply
– Actuator faulty
No active or passive position is detected
– Actuator faulty

https://www.pcarshops.com/ will give you a list of shops that claim to work on P-cars in your area. I'd visit a few and look at what kind of cars they are working on and what equipment they have and maybe ask a few customers.

Keep us posted. Hopefully a camshaft actuator is a relatively easy fix.

If you've got to pull the valve cover off I understand that getting it re-sealed is a bi**h. They don't have a gasket and require a 3 mil wide band of sealant.

My 01 Box with 88K just kicked on a CEL. I've got a reader coming so we'll see what it says.

2001 boxster fault code P1341

I just purchased the 2001 boxster with 87k on it. After looking through the service paperwork of the previous owner, I found that 2000 miles ago the car had a fault code P0341 and P0336. They replaced the CRANKSFAFT POSITION SENSOR and the CAM SENSOR #1. Would this have anything to do with the fault code P1341 that I just got on the car. Could the work not have been done properly?
