I'm getting code 340. I did some research and found out that it could be a few other things besides the sensor. Maybe you could help me with something else. I just replaced all the valves and had my head redone, put it all back together and I had a radiator leak so I replaced the radiator today. Right after I replaced the radiator I started it up it ran for maybe 3-5 minutes top I heard a soft thumping noise and it started smoking white smoke out of the tailpipe. There is no water in the oil but I am baffled as to what it might be.
