Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The p0340 code is an idication of a cam sensor/timing belt problem. It does not stall? It starts right up? no loss of power? here is a procedure for that code
1. Check the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor for 5 volts on the Orange wire.2. Check for 5 volts on the Tan/Yellow wire with it unplugged from the sensor.3. Jumper the Tan/Yellow wire to the Black/Light Blue wire to see if the 5 volts is pulled to ground indicating a good sensor ground.4. Scope the signal wire. There should be a 0-5 volt square wave. If not, either the CMP sensor is bad or the timing belt is broken
If you have any questions let me know.
Cam sensor could very well be bad then on occasion the ignition coil could cause that, but it is looking closer to the cam sensor being the problem
