hesitation during take off

I've put it on the computer and pulled up 14 codes, mostly repeats. Engine miss-fire, camshaft position sensor and O2 sensor.

I thought the camshaft would fix it but it didn't, it only does under load like when i floor it. I do have a broken O2 sensor right after the cat on the passenger side. Before anything else is done I thought I'd ask.

darrenketcher,

Did you replace the camshaft position sensor or just the camshaft? Are the codes for the camshaft position sensor and O2 sensors?

Maybe you could edit your post with punctuation to make it a little easier to read.

It may be useful to utilize proper punctuation and grammar.

To quote something I read the other day:

Quote:
Proper punctuation and grammar is the difference between

I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse

and

I helped my uncle jack off a horse
Could you try this sentence as the paragraph it should be, so I could follow it?

You have a lot of codes. Please post them all so we can get a better understanding of the situation. I would get that Cam sensor taken care of for sure, that could be a big problem. Any o2 sensor after the cat will not affect drivability - its just to verify if the cat is efficient.

Darren, at least put periods at the ends of your sentences. You responded to the reply about your grammar with precisely the same poor grammar. Seriously, just try periods at the ends of your sentences if nothing else. It will help us understand your problem and offer solutions.

To put what Gabealicious said another way,
