Default The P0344 Code...

I own a 2008 PT Cruiser Touring with 89,000 miles on it. I took a trip this past weekend and 2 hours into my trip im doing 70mph on a freeway using my cruise control and then out of nowhere the cruise control shuts off the car gets sluggish when i press the gas pedal and i cant accelerate. I pulled over turned the car off turned it back on and the cruise control came back on but i couldnt go past 55mph or it would do the same thing. So i ended up making a 3 hour ride home at 55mph with my hazards on -.-. I have the error code P0344 i have replaced the cam shaft sensor which i bought the part from autozone. Ive had a couple ppl tell me it sounds like the fuel pump but i dont have any indicators that its that besides the loss of acceleration. My next step is just taking it to the dealership and hoping they dont charge me an arm and a leg for something crazy, any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

just a suggestion, but i'd take the cam sensor back and get a mopar sensor. chances are the dealership will put one of theirs in and you'll end up paying an arm and a leg once they're through.

pt cruisers don't like aftermarket sensors.

Change the magnet [behind the cam sensor] and carefully check it's wiring. Torque the magnet to specs. Its fragile.
