does that code 41 cause your car not to start!
No..code 41 does not affect start up at all. However, (correct me if I'm wrong here people) the cam magnet and cam shaft align the pistons to fire in the correct sequence. Sometimes, since the magnet is gone, the cylinders are not properly aligned and the car sputters on acceleration. This happens maybe once every 6 starts of so.
The pedal feels a but mushy too. However, when I feel the mushy pedal or sputter, I turn off the car and restart it. That seems to work. There are times, however, when the start up is normal and the car peforms better then new. The pedal has lots of resistance and the accel is normal...if not lively!
Based on my limited knowledge of mechanical systems, this is the best summary I can give.
