Default Engine lurcing + engine lite come up on 05 GT

Bought my 05 GT 2 weeks ago w/40k on it and this happened last night .. engine lite came on and I can not go over 2500 or 3000 rpm starts lurcing or like fuel pump shuts off or something .. If I turn the engine off it fixes the problem for a while but the engine light will still be on then few minutes happens again and again.
I have read few gt owners having same problem while ago but not much info there ..
Thanks for all your help!!!

What code is it throwing?

take the car to autozone or checker/krager and have them check it.

P0344 is the code and they said the probable causes are:
Cam sensor defective.
Cam sensor wire or connector or Timing belt/chain out of time .

anyone know where the cam sensor is and is it easy to change or need to go to mechanic??

Thanks.

well,
replaced my Cam sensor Sunday and no problems so far ... Also cleaned inside of my air box ,it was very dirty and looks like that poor design of the intake sucks water from front wheel ... new K&N filter also installed and removed that white plastic that keeps the intake quite but not any more ,, now I can hear the bov a bit more ..
Thanks for your advise ,
Burak.

Hope that fixes it. The intake drawing air from the wheelwell is normal on almost all cars nowadays. The intake will not suck up water unless it is submerged in water like from driving through flooded streets. Good luck.

note: an intermittent glitch in the Crank position sensor can throw a P0344 code.
