1st one has to do with your fuel tanks ability to vent fuel vapor into the intake. Not a huge big deal.

2nd one is camshaft position sensor circuit. Not camshaft condition.

The last one P1115 applies to super/turbo charged engines?! -
Intake air temp circuit 2 high input (high input refers to a value above what the computer expects to see, or has the ability to adapt to neatly and cleanly.)

So what are the physical symptoms if any?

Well at least it corrects the reading my scanners library came up with for Ford specific P1115. What's up with that Innova?

If there is a cause/effect relationship between these faults, the first faults listed should be thought of as cause and focused on first. Do you remember what order these codes were listed in?

But just because the CMP is in a fault statement doesn't mean it's causing a fault. It could mean that it's not able to do its job correctly because of another fault, which could even be a simple thing to fix.

It's a good idea to get a manual for your truck and look at how to test this stuff. These faults have to do with engine efficiency mostly, but a small thing can have a cumulative effect and over time, lead to something bigger.

Turn the key on . The important lights turn on to show you if the bulbs work or not and then go out.
Maybe your engine just knew that you cared about it enough to ask about it and that made it feel better.

You burned out yer check engine light... tsk tsk tsk. Hang your head in shame.

You ready to go to the library now, do some little research? Do it for your check engine light bulb that gave it's life for your truck.
