Try the dealer, call the service department for a correct answer. It probably is just the pre-programmed normal engine check for the catylic converter. These lights usally go on about 50K miles, then it makes you panic and send it to the dealer. He then flips a little switch under the dash to make it go out until the next 50K miles goes by, then he checks the converter for clogging or such and then charges you. Without knowing the code meaning, this is what I would suspect it to be.

I have a 0340 code for my cam shaft

Well code 340 means the cam sensor is not working correctly. The engine computer is not getting the signal it expects.
The sensor and the wiring would need to be tested.

Chevrolet Aveo 2004 Error code 0340

This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the ECM if this was helpful please leave good feed back

My 2002 pt cruiser died while I was driving first the oil light came on then it just died! I just had the oil changed 3 days prior to it dying some of the codes I received were 0340 1684 1685...

P0340 is cam position sensor. P1685 is for the key(has a chip in it) P1684 is battery has been disconnected. If the engine will still crank then codes P1684 & P1685 are probably old codes. So if the car will still crank, lets forget about those codes and focus on P0340 A bad cam position sensor will cause the engine to die and not allow it to start back up. Replace the cam position sensor and clear the code and the car should start up.

My 07 PT Cruiser check engine light came on. It is riding well on the highwat but idling badly at stop. I had the code checked and got PO304. Can you help?

Ask the man or woman that gave you the code what it means. Just about any full service auto parts store will perform this service for you for no fee ... Then, if they do give you the free service, plan to purchase the necessary repair parts from them ... it is called one hand washes the other.

My 2003 PT cruiser's engine light came on, then the car started running extremely rough. It became so bad, I had to pull over. Sitting idle, it seems to idle a little rough, but when I gas it gas, it would...

Find your air mass flow sensor in the stiff collar of the air ducting immediately after the air filter. Have the engine running and disconnect the plug to the MAF. If this makes the car run evenly again you need to replace the broken MAF. The misfire on plug 4 I think is a downstream event of the MAF not sending the right info to the ECU and consequently not providing the right fuel / air mix to the engine

Car cut off while driving. Oil light on. Code of P0340

sounds like camshaft positioning sensor.

If you have this problem you will have a difficult time diagnosing what exactly is causing it. The easiest thing to do is to buy another sensor and install it. If this does not fix the problem then you should probably take it to a professional. The reason for this is it will take advanced diagnostic skills and equipment to pinpoint the problem.
