Unhappy 2001 pt cruiser

We had timing belt changed, water pump, and now we can't get rid of rough idle and when you accelerate at times it has a miss at high rpms, but it is not constant. cruiser has 107,ooo miles on it and the codes the car shows keep coming up po352,p1684, and 1391. So we changed the ignition coil and miss is a little better but its still there and its driving us nuts. the ignition code is now gone but the other two remain. any help!!!

Almost every owner that came here with a rough idle after the timing belt was changed turned out to be the timing was off by 1/2 or 1 tooth. It's extremely easy to mis-time the PT engine in fact someone said that you actually have it off by one tooth before putting the belt back on because it moves when the belt is put on.
