I didn't think a switch would be very effective, too much money. Especially when I could find an SRT-4

Also, I took my car to autozone to run a diagnostics test since my engine lights on. It came up with:

Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Intermittent
Power Sterring Pressure Switch Circuit Failure
No Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Failure
No Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Failer

Could someone explain these to me? Autozone did but it didn't really help much because she wasn't 100% sure.

I've been told the camshaft when fixed would give me better mileage?? Is that true?

Any time your check engine is on your car isn't running at optimum efficiency. So yes. That's not necessarily telling you what needs replacing though, that's just the symptom.

Also when dealing with codes, you always start with the first one as it usually fixes the rest.

And by first, tofunater means "numerically lowest"
