I have a 2007 ford freestyle error code p0340 bought a new camshaft position sensor, i just dont know were it is located on the engine and how I would need to get to it, what i would have to move and what not.
OBD Codes do not mean you replace parts that sound
like the name of a code
You use the codes to diagnose the system that set the fault
code & component test to find a problem
Your buying parts, when you don't know how they work
or where they even are on the motor & do not plan on
doing any testing, to find a problem, to see if a part has failed
Best you let a professional find a problem for you.
The internet is filled with pictures & video, on anything you
need to know,if you use Google correctly

The Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor detects the position of the camshaft in order to identifiy when piston No. 1 is on its compression stroke. The CMP sensor is used for ignition timing in the Ford DIS igntion system, but not in the EDIS igntion system. Both DIS/EDIS use the CMP signal for synchronizing the firing of sequential fuel injectors.
On the 3.0L vulcan engine, the CMP signal is generated by a single Hall-Effect magnetic switch, activated by a single "vane" spinning around by virture of a synchronized shaft which is driven by the camshaft.
The CMP sensor & synchronizer/shaft are located behind the intake manifold (i.e., back near the firewall on a Ranger) on the top of the cylinder block. If you just need to replace the sensor, it is a simple job of unplugging the electrical connector and removing the screws holding the sensor in place. Here is a sketch of the sensor to give you an idea what to look for:

it sounds like you have bigger problems if your car does not crank(turn over) then your timing belt could have broken and the one piston could be hitting a valve causing it to be locked up.normally when any sensor is bad car engine still cranks it just doesn't start.
