Have you looked at the Camshaft Position Sensor? That code is for your camshaft not the crankshaft. It might be unplugged or bad

However, I will say a bad or intermittent CKP Sensor can cause a p0340, did you try resetting the PCM after you replaced the CKP sensor? I always find it to be a good idea to reset the computer when changing any sensor.

Unplug negative cable on battery, turn the key to on for 30 seconds, turn it back off, reconnect the negative terminal, start up and see (I know you had a Dakota, same process to reset the PCM)

Check here for how to replace the Camshaft Position Sensor:

I might look at replacing the camshaft sensor next but i noticed now when i get it too actually run that it spews water from the exhaust and after it dies out it bellows white smoke. Im going to do an oil change tomorrow.

A little H2o on startup is normal. The white smoke is likely the PCM having the wrong timing info due to the aforementioned sensor, or at least that would be my theory on the situation.

Check the cam position sensor (located in/on the distributor). If it's not unplugged, probably have to replace it.

Other threads indicated that it will mess with the injector sequence (rough idle) and will eventually trigger the auto shutoff relay...

Exactly, the cam shaft position sensor is basically the fuel sync

It wasn't just a little, there was a decent size puddle under my exhaust. The the white smoke lasted for awhile. I'm going to do a oil change, replace the distributor and end up replacing the plugs.

Did you leave a piece of information out of the original equation, such as:

"I went through a crap-ton of water that was hood high yesterday and..." ?

Did I miss the water part or is there more to the story?

With the water, you screwed something under the hood with water, the p0340 and p0320 tell me your pcm isn't getting any signal at all from the distributor

Yup finally got it fixed! All the codes came from a bad ECM connection. Which happened to be the connection point for all of the sensors which I got codes for. It was filled with water an corrosion. Cleaned it with a 10 can of dust off and it's perfect.
