A P0340 refers to the circuit, not the sensor. There's still something wrong. All the info here:

A circuit problem could be caused by the sensor. The cam sensor is under the coil pack, held on by 2 bolts. Check the wiring and if it's ok, I would replace the sensor. It's cheap.

When i had mine replaced, they replaced the synchronizer as well. I was told that it was messed up also. If they would have replaced it the problem would have come back due to the fact that the synchronizer would chew up the new one again. When i got the parts back i noticed that the synchronizer was messed up as well. It looks like a small distributor.

You are correct. In that case, I would check the syncrhonizer assembly carefully to make sure all seems well and that there is no physical contact between the rotating hall effect magnet and sensor.

yes, I had this exact same problem with mine chewing up cam position sensors. I finally took out the synchronizer, and found out there was a lot of play in it (going side to side, was oval shaped) bought a new one from Ford, replaced it and havent had a problem since.
