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

To fix it, your going to need a 10mm wrench (or socket with a short 3" extension, experiment at
home to find the exact tool you think you will need if stranded on the side of the road,
at night, in the cold and rain). A flathead screwdriver, and a replacement CPS. Ideally, you should use a 6-point tool, as the CPS bolt is known for rounding off. Locate the CPS. It is on the passenger side of the engine block. Accessible from under
the truck, and located about the 10 o'clock position behind the crankshaft front pulley.
Reach up and unplug the wiring harness, remove the 10mm bolt, and GENTLY pry the bad CPS
out with the flat screwdriver.

that code usually means the distributor was moved and the cam and crank signal sync is off,you mwill need a scanner capable of data display to reset it,it should be near or at 0 degrees,if you do not have access to a scanner your local shop should be more than capable of reseting it.hope this helped

take my advice, bro. When you're not 100% sure what the feedback had indicated, either the cam or the crank sensors. In my opinion, unless you are a professional mechanic having proper knowledge on the mechanics of this car, I would suggest you take the car to a dealer workshop and get it checked properly, because if you make a mistake and stuff the timing or interfer with the sensors and then it wont work as it should, you'll end up paying more than if you had the car serviced by a professional mechanic who specializes in this field, because these days cars have such delicate components and onboard computers, it is impossible to do the repairs yourself. This is no longer the 60-70's wehn you could fix a car yourself. Today, at the opening of your Ford's bonnet there is an intricate network of pipes, tubes, wires, anti-pollution monitors and other 'no-touch' componentry running to and from one end and another. So, to go ahead and do it youself, it would mean you first have to remove this 'component', then that 'bolt', and so on, eventually it will turn out you'll be stripping your engine and cannot recall what goes where. And, of course if you don't have the proper machines to monitor the cam dwell and timing, you'll further aggravate the problem. Although the repair manual tells you this and that but does it tell you the kind of machines and testing devices you'd need to test the sensors and or to reset the timing and cam dwell angle, or an oscilloscope to test other functions for a smooth running engine should you wish to do it yourself?
