Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

 

No, neither of these would be serious issues at all.

 

P0340 sets when the engine controller doesn't see a signal from the camshaft position sensor. This can be the cam sensor or wiring, or in the case of a no start situation it can be the timing belt or chain. If the car runs then you can rule this out. By far the most likely cause for a P0340 is the cam sensor.

 

P0130 can be set by the oxygen sensor itself or it's wiring. Wiring is a possibility and should be checked before replacing parts, but a bad oxygen sensor is the cause of an oxygen sensor code in almost all cases.
