We are here to help. We need you to be specific, what does "when it wants to" mean? The faults are not able to be erased? Has the ignitor been swapped for another to see if it changes? Has the variable valve timing sensor been replaced?

Hi dr. Hardy the only thing that was done to this vehicle is the timing belt and water pump nothing else was
done no ignitor was swapped or anything of that nature and the varible timing sensor has not been changed
the timing belt was basically shredded but the car still turned on and ran it was only when the timing belt was changed that
these codes came up. Thats all I have sorry

The car starts when it feels like it, as if it had its own mind its just that frustrating.
