Default 2001 pt turns over..wont start

here is a doozy, my 2001 pt died on me at a light getting off the freeway....scan tool gave me misfire codes and I had no power to my fuel injectors....so I looked around as the head was recently done. Found the fuel injector harness not quite clipped all the way. So I clipped it back and together...figured I was done.....then it spit out 340 cam error code...replaced cam and crank sensors, checked wiring I have 8.9 volts to the sensor, ground appears good as well.....still code 340.....put a used pcm in it cranked it a few times, still got error code 340 even though my key did not communicate with the brain.....what now?

take the cam sensor out and see if the cam turns when you crank it. most likely timing belt if ur ~100k.

I have a 2001 pt cruiser touring edition. I have only had it since March 2013 and in the summer when it was in idle at a red light or just in general it would start to over heat. Well the the one day in the summer it over heat and there was an orange fluid leaking out. Well i let my car cool down for about an hour and it was able to drive again. Well in July I was driving home from work and my check oil light came on and my car just died. everything worked the lights and radio but when it died i could turn properly or press the break in enough. I go to start it and it turns over but wont turn on. i changed the one sensor and i have tried jump starting it and leaving it on a battery charger over night and it still will not turn on. any ideas?!

Yeah,you might want to start your own new thread,as this one is over a year old,and also because it sounds like you may have 1,2,or 3 different issues going on at once with your PT Cruiser.
