READING CODES PO340 AND PO300

1998 Suzuki Sidekick • 15,300 miles

98 sidekick automatic 4x4 idle surges up and down when cold and levels off to a stall out after warm and runs rough and can not drive or it wont go fast enough.I replaced o2 sensors as it needed them for a good while, than the maf and after that a few days it started rough idle, my cat was not even a year old. Now I hear a rattle sound in it like something is bounceing around in it. When I rev the motor it revs good just wont idle right and in drive has no pick up just boggs. Thanks for any help you can spare. Mj

I don't see it sold seperate so looks like its the distrubutor unless the dealer has one they sell by itself.

Okay I got a used dist. And installed it and it cranked the first turn of key, I reset the pcm and now Im getting a crankshaft sensor code, Motor has power and I am going to put timeing lite on it, but right now the Idle is still going up and down between 10 and 1500 k but moter is running fine. Is there a way to test crankshaft sensor?

After I emailed you I took it for a ride and it bogged every now and again but always came back as I gave it gas, Than I took another reading and Po 335 and po505 came up also.
