Question about Cars & Trucks
Google your codes & read up
Codes have nothing to do with replacing any parts
You have to component test the system with
the fault codes, to find a problem
If you have no problem or don't know what is wrong
why change parts?
Really need professional tools to look at data, to
help determine what areas need further testing

I would think it would be just the Camshaft Position Sensor.I looked up the codes and they say pretty much the samething.
P0340 Ford Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
P1336 Ford Crankshaft/Camshaft Sensor Range/Performance

The cam angle sensor need to be replace. Once it's cooked it will never the same.
Have to consider moving to synthetic oil (Like Amsoil) or remove the front license plate (please check state regulation first).
I'm using Amsoil Synthetic
10W-30 in summer and 5W-30 in winter
Use 65/35 Amsoil coolant mix ration instead of 50/50
Removing the license plate does help air flow.
Clean junk collect in front of the A/C condenser and radiator.
Check radiator cap's plastic gasket.
Get a Rad-Cap
Check/Clean the ECU contacts with CRC electronic part cleaner,
@ 85,000+ miles be prepare for timing belt + water pump change.
Clean / change temp sensor ///// monitor electric fan for operation.
Cam sensor can not be overheated.
<230 F is ideal
I listed everything that can keep the motor cool.
Please rate my answer if it's helpful to you.

the chances are good for the number 5 coil needing replacement, but before i did anything else i would change that cam sensor, that could be causing your problem all the way around.. hope this helps... setting timing is a big drawn out job, i dont think you will need to do that, timing shouldnt be out.
