Alllow me elaborate.

9 cam sensors from:

-the dealship
-autozone
-o rileys
-advanced auto zone

crank sensor from:
-the dealer

Whole new engine bay harness

Brand new PCM flashed with his VIN

Coil

Wires

Plugs

Went over all the wires possibly related the the CPS

And NO we did not check the timing belt, not needed

All of these were changed and or replaced.

The FIX:

IMO: If you want the fix for sure get a BRAND NEW cam sensor and a cam sensor magnet from the dealer for the P0344 fix but with the P0340 and P0344 codes replace the crank sensor also, I had luck with that about a year ago.

Be sure to disconnect your battery when putting in the magnet and CPS.

We will see man, I dont see why not, it was the only part over looked and not changed. You think to your self how is it possible a cam magnet go bad or wear out...but it is possible.

All you have to do it take off the two bolts for the CPS (8mm) and then a torx wrench to take the bolt out for the magnet, the magnet has two tabs on the back of it that are off center so they can only go on one way.

Its so easy I can do it blindfolded
