Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that will cause a loss of spark. I'm assuming that the timing belt and senors were replaced in an attempt to regain spark rather than the loss of spark happening afterward.

It's possible that you're still fighting a cam or crank sensor issue if you replaced them with aftermarket, but it could also be an ASD circuit issue, the coil, or possibly the powertrain control module itself.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to check for fault codes. Do you know if any codes are setting?
