Default Error code question

So I have posted before about my PT cruiser having these two error codes

P0340
P0344

Read on it being a cam sensor ....
Was going to purchase part online but I thought I read somewhere that it should probably be the specific one. Can anyone link me the part I need to purchase so I don't have to go through the dealer.. PLEASE

When mine went bad I didn't have the $80 to replace it with a Mopar unit from dealer...I bought a MasterPro from O'Reilly's for $36.
That being said, it's been posted here before that after markets parts are iffy, they could last a few months or a few years. So far I haven't had any problems.

says o.e.m.

one of the reviews also states which magnet to get if the sensor doesn't do the trick.

If you don't want to go to the dealer, try RockAuto Parts Catalog

Fill in: Chrysler, 2005, 2.4L, Ignition, Camshaft Position Sensor and you'll have about 7 choices of sensors from $22 to $50.

I got a better price on the cam sensor ordering it from a Chrysler dealer out of state. I prefer to have a peace of mind, pay the extra cost for a Mopar cam sensor from the Chrysler dealer and have a better chance of the cam sensor not quitting on me hundreds of miles away from home.

I would suggest going to the dealer and get the actual Mopar Camshaft Position Sensor number after giving the dealer the VIN # off your PT Cruiser. This way you are making sure you are ordering the right Mopar Camshaft Position Sensor on the internet and not have to hassle returning the wrong part.

Verify the MOPAR number before ordering on eBay or Amazon or any other place.
