Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a few things going on. It could be a wiring or connection issue, it may still be the sensor, or it may be a cam timing issue. aftermarket cam and crank sensors have shown poor quality and very often cause repeat issues.

Does the engine start and run? If not, does it crank faster than normal or does it sound uneven?

it cranks foster

If the engine cranks faster than it should, doesn't start and is setting a P0340 then the timing belt has almost certainly broken. I would recommend removing the timing cover and inspecting the belt.
