Angry 01 pt cruiser will not start

Ok I have been on this page for little while looking at alot of issues people have similar to mine but still nothing. I have a 01 pt cruiser that broke off the crank position sensor so I replaced after a couple hours of drilling and prying, started the car made a trip to the store and back home ran fine no problems. The next morning went to start car and it wouldn't start but would fire randomly and still not start. So I shot either in it and held gas to floor car started ran horrible like a timing problem jumped up to 3500 - 4000 rpms at Rev limiter and ran hard holding like so. Let off throttle same sputtering and died. Read on here cam sensor might be bad and after pulling code for malfunction changed sensor. Still same problem any ideas someone may have would be appreciated.

What engine codes are you getting now?
Did you reset the codes with a Scan Tool?

Also, how many miles are on the car?
And what made the crank sensor break to begin with?
