P0341 is incorrect cam to crankshaft phasing, not a sensor issue normally.
If this happened suddenly, as if it was running perfect just before you shut it down, and now runs like crap, you need to do the following....
Verify cam timing by pulling the cam cover, line up the white mark on the front crank pulley to the pointer on the front cover, the two dots should be at about 1 o'clock, and the two hash marks should be exactly together on the sprockets.
While you are checking, see if the intake camshaft will rotate independent of the sprocket, it should be locked when shut off. You may need to wrap the shaft with a rag and use a pair of pliers or vise grips to turn the intake cam if there are no flats for a wrench on it.
Is your car a stick or auto?
It's kind of rare for a cmp sensor on one of these to just up and crap out.
If the cam timing is ok, you'll need to get it to someone with a HDS, to do the VTC system test since your car isn't running properly. The VTC actuator or solenoid valve could be bad as well.
For any of these repairs, phaser, solenoid or cam chain components, you'll also need to do the low and high speed crankshaft pattern learns. Another HDS or very good aftermarket scan tool function.
