When was the last time the spark plugs were changed? The OE ones are 100K mile plugs, and if they were changed at 100K, they are due to be changed again.

If you can clear all the codes, do that and then try to start it. If the P0335 pops up again, the replacement crank sensor could be bad. It’s not common for them to be bad out if the box, but it happens, especially if they are aftermarket instead of OEM.

Okay, question could the timing belt be a problem to?

It could be. I forget the service interval of the timing belt and tensioner, but I believe it’s around 100K miles. If that is the original timing belt and tensioner on the engine, it is possible the tensioner has failed or the belt has slipped to throw the timing off enough to prevent starting of the engine.

IIRC the timing belt tensioner is the item most likely to fail first in that whole timing belt setup. It is possible to replace it and retime the engine, but since the timing belt and water pump are also uncovered to get to get to the tensioner, there is no reason not to replace them as well if inspecting the timing belt tensioner.

If I recall correctly the manual listed 175,000km for timing / tensioner. There is an updated tensioner that needs to be installed. I think the timing cover was a 3 piece ordeal and yes since you're opening it all up you're going to save time doing the waterpump while you're in there.
