Most likely the P0303 is being caused by the P0340 in addition to the engine problems. The P0340 means there's a problem with the camshaft position sensor CIRCUIT not necessarily the sensor. It could be the wiring going to the sensor or even the PCM (computer) itself. Carefully inspect the wiring going to the sensor. Be sure there's no damage to the wiring. If that's ok, you'll need to have the PCM looked at. HTH. -Jim
