Hello, There is an extended Warranty for "Cam Phasers". I want to say 7 Years and 90,000 Miles. But some of the repairs are on a case by case basis. Years 2004-2008 were affected.
I will tell you what your Codes mean.p0011 and p0022 are both for the Camshaft position sensors. One side is overadvanced and the other is retarded. Code p 0171 is an O2 sensor, Code 0300 is random misfiring, Codes p0305 and 0307 are the #5 and #7 cylinder misfires. Code p0316 is a general misfire when starting up, and finally the p2198 is a rich condition O2 sensor on bank2 sensor 1.
All of these make sense when the Cam on bank 1 is over advanced you will run lean and the Cam on bank 2 is retarded, you will run rich. The misfires are from incorrect timing and affected fuel mix.
There are "cheater tools" for this repair which will cut Labor costs in half. Check the Web for Mac tools, Snap-on, and so forth. The cheater works by pressing down on the internal chain tensioner to make slack in the timing chain. You take off the valve covers and unbolt the Cam (Phaser) gear and sneak it out through the valve cover opening. The CAM PHASERS cost $300 to $500 apiece.
A normal repair without the cheater involves removing the front of the motor up to the heads and still requires removing the valve covers.
I hope my solution is very helpful to you, at least you know why you are getting the Codes you are reading.

The problem is at the 5th cylinder and a misfire during start up based on the error code. Inspect first the said cylinder. Check if there is spark or if you need to have the plug replaced. It could also be a bad high tension wire. This may solve the 2nd issue which may have triggered it.

The coil-on-plug. These are common to fail. #1 is easy to get to, all you need is a 7mm socket, an extension, and a ratchet. P0301 tells you that cyl.#1 is not firing everytime it is asked to, P0316 means that during the first 1000 revolutions when you start your truck, there was a misfire. To be sure about the coil, swap the coils with the one next to #1. Clear the codes and wait for the codes to return. If the code P030_ shows up, (P0302 if you swapped it with #2, P0303 for #3, for example) Then remove that coil and get you another!

The 300 is random misfires & the 316 is misfires on the first
1000 revolutions,such as when the motor is first started
Your only working on cylinder #3 the PO303
If you have individual cop coils,replace that one
If you have a motor with a module for several cyclinders,
then you may be best to have a shop diagnose,so as
not to waste money on the wrong parts
