Default Car dies at stop light, crank won't start, code 340

2004 PT Cruiser Platinum Turbo Lite, 100,803 miles.

Drive 40 miles roundtrip to work everyday (and some Saturdays), mostly highway.

Stopped at traffic light last night, car just died. Oil light and CEL came on, Security LED flashed. Could crank, but no start. Got towed home.

Reading code P0340 only (via key dance and UltraGauge). Replaced cam sensor (had to use Dorman OEM since dealers are closed on Easter Sunday). Cleared code, no change. Crank, no start, code P0340 comes back.

I can hear the fuel pump come on before I start.

Battery is nearly new, plugs less than a year old, MSD wires maybe two years old. Changed crankshaft position sensor last summer, new PCM installed maybe three months ago. Original timing belt as far as I know. No issues until last night.

Any advice where to go from here welcome.
