Default Definitive Answers? P0300, P2302?

Hello All,
I have a 06 GT Cruiser 5spd. I was getting the dreaded (but harmless, so I thought) P0340 CPS code and the car was going into limp mode. I had the sensor changed w/ a mopar CPS. Code cleared ran great for 1 day. Suddenly, car runs very rough, check engine light blinks and the car throws codes P0300 and P2302. Which appears to be VERY common on these cars and it's twin the Neon. Why is there no definitive answer on this? I realize many variables and combos of things can go wrong. But, come on! Nothing but change and pray??? It just sucks! So here's what has been done:

checked harness and connections
lucas injector cleaner
checked and getting spark 1-4
tested out swapped with new Coil Pack, Plug Wires, Plugs
Put broken CPS back in to see if would fix new code and go back to old code

Help good people of the board. I sure would like to know where to go on this. I guess we all would. So many threads about this problem here. None of them end with a definitive fix or end... none??? Thanks in advance.

There is the cam sensor and a crank sensor on the front.

If you changed the cam sensor and are still having issues change the crank.

How many miles on the car, and how many miles on the timing belt, if the belt jumps a tooth it could trigger the cam error code.

Car has 55,000 miles on it. Timing belt has not been done yet. I changed the Cam Position Sensor and the code P0340, I believe was cleared and fixed. That has not returned. But, I am now getting P0300 and P2302 instead. Even when I put the old Cam Sensor back in just to make sure it wasn't the new sensor. The code is still P0300 and P2302.

Why would I change I Crank sensor for 1 and 4 for a misfiring? I'm not a mechanic, I'm not sure how that could tie in? Thanks for your help though I'm trying to avoid the change and pray method. Though, I guess it's too late!
