Angry Code P0340

Just recently, my 2003 Cruiser started to act weird. The engine would not go above 2500 rpm when in neutral; while running will do a jerk/kick motion. The code reader gave me a P0340.

Is the cam sensor the actual problem?

Is there any way to test the unit (ohms/resistance/voltage) to be sure? The engine has 142,000 miles (timing belt was replaced at 103,000).

Would the magnet go bad also?

Please

Both have been an issue. I'm told to use oem on this item as some have reported issues with aftermarket peaces.
