Default 2002 PT Cruiser Won't Start

I have a 2002 Cruiser with 204,000 miles. Timing belt replaced recently, new IAC Valve, new Camshaft position sensor, and all vacuum hoses intact and engine won't start. It'll turn over but won't catch. Codes said vacuum leak IAC. Replaced valve but still nothing. Camshaft is turning so it's not timing belt and battery is good. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Fuel and spark. Your 02 should have a Schrader (?) valve at the end of the fuel line to check for correct fuel pressure.

Did you replace the new IAC Valve first?
Then the new Camshaft position sensor?
Is the new IAC Valve from the dealer?
Is the new Camshaft position sensor an aftermarket brand?
