I assume you determined the diagnostic trouble code for the sensor was TRUE/VALIDATED?
If so, then there is NO reason to do anything else but 'swap out the part.' Your second question is somewhat puzzling... the cam shaft is on TOP of the engine - the sensor's location (standing on the passenger side of the vehicle with the hood open, is on the left side of the engine at approximately the 10 o'clock position of the cam.... the connector to it is at the 9 o'clock position.

Gas milage (economy) is dependent upon the O2 Snsr's (oxygen Sensors) input to the ECU (Engine Control Unit). The cam position sensor, if malfunctioning, it should be replaced (cleaning it doesn't repair the problem which exists inside the component/sensor). Before you start throwing money after parts, Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this issue.

Error code po340 for a 2002 hyundai elantra


Here is what I could find on your P0340 error code:
CausesA code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
  • a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
  • the camshaft position sensor may have failed
  • the PCM may have failed
  • there exists an open circuit
  • the crankshaft position sensor may have failed
Possible SolutionsWith a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
  • Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
  • Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
  • Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
  • Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
  • Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
  • Diagnose/replace the PCM as required
Sounds like since you have replaced both the camshaft and crank shaft sensors you need to look at the PCM.  Go down the line of possible solutions and don't replace the PCM unless nothing else works obviously.  I hope this helps but it looks like you are looking at getting a new PCM.  Good luck.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

1995 Elantra has no spark from plugs


A couple of Questions first. Over head cam? If over head does it have a belt? Have you checked fuses? You can check to see if you get a pulse at cam sensor. It will be in mill volts. You need to check power at coil and also going to cam sensor. Did it die quick or ? Check these then I'll get back.
