Welcome to the site

Is that P0340 or P0430? I just want to make sure

P0340 is Cam Shaft Position Sensor. That could be a bad sensor, loose connection or broken wire to the sensor

P1391 is the same

Google/board searching always helps

Those codes wont change for an 02 5.9.

I understand your question and concern and they could be related to the bad or other PCM and then again, this may be a new unrelated issue

So i read another thread and said maybe the reset of the computer and making the new ECM learn all the components....is this possibly true ? should i give that a shot before spending 100.00 on parts ? And your saying that it doesnt matter whether its a 4.7/5.9

resetting the PCM wont hurt but I doubt it will help. Pull your batt cables and wait a few minutes and reconnect them.

ODBii codes are standard. Although the troubleshooting foe the component may differ from one ride to the next. The meaning of the code itself is the same no matter what year/make/model/engine

Use the 2003 service manual from weeds signature link.

The 02&03 are pretty much identical.
