SOURCE: error code P0340
lionelloopho: P0340 is a Cylinder signal not getting to the ECM, momentarily while the engine is being cranked.
According to Nissan's diagnostic chart, the recommend checking the following: Harness connectors for the cam positioning sensor,
The sensor it self, The starter, for excessive draw.
The battery for weakness.
Nissan did have a service bulletin out on hard cranking problems.
The symptoms include difficult starting ans spark knock (very sharp rattling sound)
The bulletin reference number is: NTB95-090 You can check with Nissan because the solution warrants the replacement of the ECM.
You may have to tell a little white lie and tell them you have been living with the problem for quite a while because no one has been able to solve the problem and you have just now heard of this bulletin.
Good Luck and let me know how you make out, I'm pretty sure this is the solution.

its probably just grounded wires.. check your car's wiring.. if you can't do that yourself. Have an electrician/mechanic check it for you..

p0130 is an oxygen sensor code.
p0340 is your camshaft position sensor code
p0336 is your crankshaft position sensor code
as far as the p0130 code those usually are what i call neglected sensors that do not get replaced when they should be. this sensor is expensive but worth the money as it will help on fuel mileage.
on to the camshaft position sensor, i would start here with this. replace that sensor and when you are replacing it, inspect the sensor and make sure the electrical wires going into it are in good shape. after replacing those 2 sensors, go to a parts store who can erase your codes to turn the light off and then let us know if it comes back on and then we will go from there on the repair.

A fault code P0340 on the '05 Dodge Neon means, "No CAM signal at PCM." So the camshaft position sensor or its wiring is at fault.
The car will start and run without the cam signal, but it will run in "limp-home" mode and batch-fire fuel injection - So it'll run, just not very well...
First step, make sure the sensor is actually plugged in. It's on the driver's side of the head, looks like a square with a raised circle. Also check the wiring from it back to the computer and make sure it isn't shorting out somewhere. Replacing the sensor only takes those 4 bolts and a few rags for oil.
I'm not sure on the price of the part, but I don't think it's anymore than $50 or so.
I hope this helps and good luck! :)
