Default timing belt issues?

Hi all, im new here looked for a long time but finally joined. I have a 2003 PT, just had timing belt replaced, ran for a day had a ticking sound, and just stopped running. I pulled a code for the camshaft sensor replaced it with no results. Any tips on what to do next? Starting to get frustrated!

i would call the place who did the timing belt replacement and have them tow it (at their expense) back to them. seems to me it got screwed up on their end.

In that case you should appeal to his good side and see if he can help you find out what happened.

bad or disconnected ground wire, broken wire by the cam sensor, or bad sensor are what i'd look for before throwing parts at it. do the injectors pulse/does the exhaust pipe smell of raw fuel?
