Please give me one moment to review the other question to see where we left off...
Ok. Yes. Replacing the distributor should solve the problem. If the engine is a 1995 2.2L... then this is how you should order the new distributor. I'm showing that the distributor for the 1995 Camry is only compatible to a 1992-1196 Celica. So, if you order a distributor for a '97 Celica... it would not be compatible and will not work correctly.

If the engine in the Celica is from a 95 Camry... then order a distributor for a 95 Camry. The 95 Camry distributor has 2 plugs.
Hmmm. That's a very good question. Looking into the 95 Camry... unfortunately, no wiring diagram for the distributor. Bummer. Ugh... and no wiring diagram for the 97 Celica either. Jeeeze. Unfortunately, at this point... I can't even determine which wire is the cam sensor signal to wire it in. My apologies. No idea why the manual doesn't show a diagram for either.
No. The P0340 is very straight forward. It's not getting a cam signal. Period. You can "try" the 97 distributor... but no promises that it'll fit into the engine. The interchange guide says only up to 96. But... find a parts store that'll let you return it if it's wrong.
Ah. Well if the 97 fits the 95... yeah... try a new distributor! If not... then you're in for a wiring nightmare. And unfortunately... i have no diagrams provided for either vehicle to even get you pointed in the right direction. You'll need to get the cam signal from the distributor to the ECM (on-board computer) somehow. This is what is lacking and setting the P0340. The ECM is looking for a cam signal, and none is being sent.
It's 5 o'clock here. I got to run for the day. If you have any other questions, I'll have to address them in the morning. If you have no further questions... Please remember to leave a rating for our Q&A using the stars at the top of the page. Thank-you.

Yes. The Ohms values are what they appear. 135-220 ohms is just that.
The only other thing I can for you have is provide you with the Toyota diagnostic flow chart for the P0340. Download that here: https://goo.gl/iH3wsu
