P340 is camshaft position sensor malfunction. P1380 ic VCT Solenoid Valve short or open. Most likely camshaft sensor needs to be replaced. The vapor canistor solenoid is also most likely burned or rotted out.

1999 mercury mystique with p1380 code.

On the 1999 mercury mystique I don't believe the timing is adjustable? Your PCM (powertrain control module) will take care of it.

P1380 - Misfire Detected Rough Road Data Not Available

The comprehensive component monitor (CCM) monitors the VCT circuit to the PCM for high and low voltage. If the voltage falls below a calibrated limit a calibrated amount of time during testing, the test fails.

Possible Causes:
  • Open or short in the VCT circuit.
  • Open VPWR circuit.
  • Damaged PCM
  • Open or short in the VCT solenoid valve.

  • Possible Solutions:
    DTC P1380 is a VCT circuit check. Testing should include wires, solenoid coil, and the PCM.

    2002 Mits Galant has a hard time to start

    Your P0340 is a different problem from your P0303, but they may be related.

    Since the code P0340 indicates that there is something wrong with your cam speed sensor, your misfiring in cyl3 may be caused by this.

    This points to addressing the P0340 error before the P0303 since it could be contributing to the 303 in the first place. Look at your cam speed sensor in cyl3 and maybe this would solve both problems at once.

    Hope this helps.
