whatg engine do u have in ur car? is the vehicle running rough? have anybody done work to it lately?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
2.0 bbw, 4 cyl. It does have a little skip to it but its not very noticeable. The etc sensor was also replaced before the radiator was put in, but that code is no longer on.

i would recheck the base timing those faults are for the engine being out of time especially since the timing belt was just dome make sure ur marks line up at the crank pulley and at the cam sprocket u should find ur problem there

Where is the cam sensor? Is it behind the engine on the passenger side near the cam? This sensor has a little play. Could that cause the Code to come up. When i did the timing it seemed right on.

it is located behind a black plate the camshaft sprocket it is held with a 13mm bolt make sure u did not damage it when u where putting the belt on make sure evrything looks in place with that heres a pic of it
