My 2008 Saturn aura is reading 2 codes while the check engine light is on, one is the cam shaft  exhaust canister. I am wondering could this code mean morecould be wrong  then just the part itself?

Nicki,
Your are correct, there could be something wrong with more than just the part. The description of a check engine light code is usually vague, it is not designed to say “the oxygen sensor on the left is bad” it will usually say ” bank 1 sensor 1 O2 high voltage” The onboard engine computer can’t diagnose itself, it just lets us know when something it is receiving as signal is outside of what it expects. It is up to us to find out why that is and what needs to be replaced to get the system operating normally again. To diagnose any check engine light code the starting cost would be $98. From there we can give you a quote on what needs to be done to remedy the problem. Feel free to stop by the shop or call if you have more questions!
