It's not that hard to replaced, and can be done with common tools.
3.4 camshaft sensor removal:
Remove the serpentine belt, Disconnect the sensor wire harness, Remove the power steering pump (just remove it from the mount and out of the way), Remove the attachment bolt to the sensor, Remove the sensor, (note spray around the sensor with brake parts cleaner before removal to keep dirt from entering the engine)
To install: Lubricate the new O ring with engine oil before installing the new camshaft sensor, Tighten the retaining bolt to 8 ft.lbs. connect the sensor's electrical wire, reinstall the power steering pump, reinstall the serpentine belt.
Start the car and go out for the night with the money you just saved, You can pick up the camshaft sensor at Auto Zone and they can also give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done. Good luck and hope this helps. Take's just under 1 1/2 hour to do. You can do it in under 1 hour though if your good with tools.

SOURCE: Cam position sensor error.
It's not enough only rebuild yours engine !!!
After new camshaft position sensor instalation and timing perfectly alignment you must scan the engine control computer and erase these error, actually all errors stocked in memory. The best scantool is VAS device used by VW-Audi dealers, VAG-COM by RossTech (cable + software 704.014, 805.01, ... on CD), or also Bosch KTS 540, 570, 670, ...
RESET = erase errors from the engine control computer memory !
Yours engine control computer don't understand if you only replace damaged sensors with new others! Errors still remains in memory affect engine runing!

beleive it or not changing the oil if dirty will solve this code, also found that connector gets oil in it and that also makes p1345 code turn on, open connector and look for oil in it,look at sensor and actuator plugs for oil,the main plug connector is the actuator plug it fills with oil and makes contact between pins setting p1345 code, hope this helps.

SOURCE: Code: P0340 Cam shaft position
Check your PCM GROUND, And Also Disconnect and Inspect ALL ENGINE Harness Connectors, FORD Has Had Many Problems Over RECENT Rears With FAULSE CODES Due to Poor GROUNDS @ ENGING/BODY/COMPONENT/ GROUND Locations, And ALSO HARNESS CONNECTORS with Poor Connections, It May Not SEEM REAL , But I Have Ran into this COUNTLESS Times.
