the codes are in the area of the heated oxygen sensor ( exhaust manifold before the cat converter--codes p 0131 ,p1131,p1132) code p 3033 is random misfires, code p0340 is cam shaft position sensor fault the engine will run with heated oxygen sensor problems (HO2S) but will not run with a cam shaft position sensor problem check for wiring problems then replace that sensor , ensuring that you have the correct air gap to the rotor clearance I suspect it is a wiring problem as I am guessing in that finding the sensor you were moving the harness around to see where it was and to get to it in that case you probably made a good connection for a period of time and then it failed again
