Ran code came up with Cam positions sensor
Replaced that 3 months back
But replaces it again...
Still would not start ?
Pulled code again still cam shaft position sensor?
Pulled spark plugs light smell of gas on them !

Verify that you don't have a spark .. then disconnect the 2 wires coming from the pickup ... put an Ohm meter (DVM on lowest scale) while someone cranks the car ,,, if you get a solid fluctuation then either the ignition pac is bad or the wiring to the ECU is open. Good Luck
