Good to hear you have 58 PSI fuel pressure.

You still have the original coil in the PT Cruiser? Did it have the same issues before or only after the engine completely cut out?

I would suggest checking the wiring and the connectors going to the coil for the P0352 code. You might have an intermittent contact at the coil connectors or a wire that is going bad.

could the 352 have anything todo with the cam sensor and do you think the cam sensor is the reason my car barely runs ?

Do you still have the original crankshaft sensor? I would suggest putting that back in. The P0352 code can be triggered if the PCM does not like the signal coming from the camshaft sensor or the crankshaft sensor. We need to put everything back in that we know worked fine before the engine cutout and the P0352 that was triggered during the process.

My experience with Camshaft sensors is when they go bad they stop working properly or they put the engine in limp mode after you reach 2500 rpm. But I have never experienced the P0352 code so the best thing to do is try to put everything back in original so we can eliminate the new crankshaft sensor as possibly being the problem.

Make absolutely sure your coil wires and contacts are good before doing anything else. Check your spark plug wires and see if they got loose from replacing the coil.

Also check for vacuum leaks either on the seams around the upper manifold or the mating around (4 small gaskets) the upper and lower manifold right there in the front as you open the hood. If you spray starter fluid around those areas while it's running, there will be a noticeable sign of a vacuum leak if you have one.
