Did I Just Lose My Timing Chain?

Went to leave work and car will not start. Seems to crank over too easily like there is no compression, and will not fire. Abel to pull a code of P0341

Don't believe me? P0341 is a cam position malfunction. Of course if the cam isn't turning when the crank is.... I understand second opinion is always good.

No it not that I don't believe you I just hadn't saw your reply to my message when I wrote the post. I have satellite internet service to say it is slow would be a compliment.

With 200000 miles on the old engine I would get a junkyard motor with lower miles. Just make sure it has the revised tensioner in it. The one with the bump on the head.
