Take a look at this link http://www.obd-codes.com/p0340. The problem lies in the cam shaft sensor circuit which means that it isn't necessarily the sensor itself. Read what that page has to say and just start from the top and work your way down the solutions. As far as how much it cost, it obviously depends on what is wrong, but assuming it is your cam shaft sensor you can buy the part for around forty dollars at AutoZone. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Wiring problem or the ECU (engine control unit) is defective. Try this, disconnect the battery cables from the battery and short/touch them together for 30 seconds (do not do this if connected to the battery). Then, reconnect the cables to the battery posts & see if that fixes it. If it doesn't, then there is a wiring problem associated with the cam pos snsr or the ECU has gone bad.

The diagram in the manuals should show the timing marks on both cam gears to be on the blue timing chain links.
