I have two cylinders with damaged spark plug boots. There is no plug wires could the boot be responsible for the P1340 code?

It does say that shorted spark plugs can cause this code, so I would go ahead and fix that, clear the codes, and see if it comes back.

I would definitely change the plugs and wires. Then clear out the codes and see if it comes back. If it does, then do what you can of the diagnostics that I posted earlier.

This is a picture of the plugs that came out. No electrode left ! I cannot believe this engine started and ran. I bought this as a project, the SUV sat in a driveway for eight years. I am getting ready to change the timing belt, tension-er and water pump, I bet this is an engine that if the valve timing jumped I would have nothing left with 4 camshaft?
I been through that before and you are better off finding another engine.

Yeah those plugs definitely need changing. The gaps are all messed up and I bet Autolites are not even stock on that vehicle. I would think it should have NGK's but cannot look it up right now.

I just put a set of NGK BKR5ES-11 2382 Sparkplugs. Also I replaced the damaged boots. The old guy really sounds good. Tomorrow it's the timeing belt, tensioner and water pump. Also all the codes cleared. I think everything is good to go now. Thanks for all your help.
I know there is no money to be made on this one but I like it and it will make a good driver.
