2000 cam crank sensor 2.7 issue again

First post someone mentioned new crank sensor so I bought two of those and it did not work. I may try OEM next but I don't think that is the issue.

I have tried a combination of 3 cam sensors and 3 crank sensors and cannot get my car to run right. The cam sensors all work on my 2001 and only one of the 3 will start with any crank sensor on the 2000. I no OEM is better but I have never had any issues with the aftermarket and especially standard motor products expensive line. The cheap non name brand cam sensor is the only one that will start the car with both sensors connected. It runs rough, surges, etc., now with both sensors connected. Car will start with cam sensor disconnected with all 3 crank sensors.

I did notice a while back car was taking longer to start. I thought maybe fuel pressure but don't know. Could I have skipped a tooth on timing chain or would car not run if that happened? I hate to tear apart if I don't have to. When car starts with cam sensor disconnected it runs smooth. I guess I can run a compression check.

Any other sensor that would make for no start. I have another 2000 so maybe a swap of computers is in order? Any ideas for the second time?

I will try OEM sensors but I read an old post and I think I will be tearing into the motor. Sounds like it could be a jumped tooth or even a slipped wheel on camshaft. I will check compression first just to confirm if chain may have slipped. It was around 165 psi on all 6 last time.

I researched this and it was the exact same issue. Only started with cam sensor disconnected. That is a disconnect between cam and crank signals. For the two cases I found both had timing off. One was off by one tooth and I assume I have the same issue. I replaced everything 22k miles ago. Assume it could be water pump bearing failing, stretched chain, failed plastic guide, loose tone ring, etc. My bet is on the plastic guide as I had one fail before. WP would be next guess but will find out. I used the GMB pump with updated gasket which is more expensive than most so that would be unusual as even the crappy pumps seem to last around 50k. I will post what I find out just in case anyone is interested. I know these cars are getting very old so it may be time to start looking for something newer. I am in MN so the rust is a big problem especially for the brake lines which always go first.
