2003 audi a4 3.0 v6 30 valve Quattro. if.,the timing belt is

2003 audi a4 3.0 v6 30 valve Quattro. if.,the timing belt is off, and the camshafts are locked in place(t040030), do I just turn the crankshaft counter clockwise 0.5" to 1" to line up the crankshaft timing mark, in order to install the crankshaft locking pin, so I can put the timing belt back on. When I did the timing belt last week I had to take it apart again because the cam caps came off and oil leaked out and noticed the crankshaft timing marking was off. So somehow I installed it again the same way and now I am misfiring in cyl.1,2 and 3 with a camshaft position sensor fault. The check engine light flashes when I am at ide then idles worse. As I drive at higher RPM the light won't flash. I will take it all apart again tomorrow and I'm sure the timing marks will still be off alignment. please help.JA: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?Customer: First,it'll just blink.If I keep driving, it will then stay on, then blink, back to steady on. I will erase the code with scanner and it will do it over again.JA: Are you fixing your A4 yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: Yes. So far I have removed cylinder head. Done valve job.Timing belt. All new sprockets and pulleys. But I think the tensioner doesn't tension properly. A new one is on overnight order. You name it, I did it. Was all good, even passed smog check, got new tags on it. But the circlips came off and oil leak developed. I took it off again and that's when I noticed the crankshaft was off. but I rushed the job and put it back on like that and now the problem at hand.JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: I installed a new camshaft position sensor yesterday and still misses. The timing has to be off.
