It seems to really act up if having to sit at a stop light and loves to stall out mid intersection. Forgot to mention that earlier. Ty for your suggestions.
a lot of times on these cars the computers become defective over time and heat cycles and display very strange symptoms. if there's no issues with components or wiring - which can be time consuming to determine a cause or a lack of a cause, the only thing left is the computer,.

I would also suggest to take off the wire going to the camshaft sensor and see if your computer triggers the code for it.
