Default P1218 and p1219

Hey guys I just got my truck scanned by joe and it had two codes. P1218 CID high and p1219 CID low. What is CID? And what does this code mean?

CID=Cylinder Identification

These codes mean there was a circuit failure between the PCM and IDM, usually caused by failing CPS.

How is your cam sensor?

Just changed it about 2k ago. Could it have stored the codes?

Also it has a weird miss but it only does it sometimes. Joe did a buzz test and a cylinder contribution test and it passed both

The main reason I had him scan it is because a random miss I get. It only happens every once in a while but it's pretty bad. I'd like to figure out what it is

Chances are your CPS is failing.

Napa CPS are junk. Only run ford or IH cam sensors
