The Check Engine Light With Code: P0011, P0014, P0021, P0024, P0341, P0346, P0336, and/or P0391 on Cadillac CTS

2009 Cadillac CTS 80,000 mi,
when I first purchased the car I had 79000 miles on it and after turning about 1000 or 2000 miles the check engine light kicked on an A code came up as the car was out of time by using the camshaft position sensor bank 1 I replace that since and the repair has not been successful.since that has not been fixed poor performance and response is sluggish on and during takeoff.

Replace spark plus gas filter air filter flywheel & now I have to replace my throttle body too! But my reduce engine power & service engine soon light comes on what can it be?
check engine light came on three times since 48000 miles, since I purchased this car,replaced sensor to gas tank for pressure, still came on, repaired wire to sensor, still came on, this time it said fuel leak, no fuel leak! they reset the light, a week later it came on again, it just so came on the same day I got a notice from On Star that my OnStar was not on. I chose not to use Onstar! Something Fishy here, Can Onstar make this check engine light come on When they want to. I give up! the engine check light is still on and the car runs fine.
