Question about Mazda Protege
I would start with the free stuff check all your vaccum lines for breaks or leaks that will trick your engine computer into thinking the cat efficency is below specs. if that dosent work theres a company that makes a addive called cataclean follow the instructions it works wonders for cars that drive fine but have a cat code. if that dosent work i would personally take it to a garage and have them do a smoke test or determine weather your cat is in need of replacement.

Check connections etc at MAP sensor. If all good, replace it. Erase codes & retry. How's vehicle running, idling, any black smoke out tailpipe?

P0302-cylinder #2 misfire detected
P0420- catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 1
P0340-No cam signal at PCM.
The Cam sensor most likely needs to be replaced first. Clear the codes after that and drive and see what comes back on.

Just had one of these with a maxima, the code is multiple random misfire, when a misfire occurs, to start is do the basics, replace the plugs, check fuel pressure, clean throttle body, and coolant is topped up. also I have seen if the O2 sensor is not working correctly is can cause a misfire, you will need a scan tool to look at what the O2 sensor is doing, o rby back probing the sensor (don't damage the O2 sensor wires). If it wires replace them as well, if it has coils they usually dont give that code if one fails, it will pinpoint that a certain coil if one fals.
