I replaced my cam position sensor, crankshaft position sensor, battery, and spark plugs. Prior to cam pos sensor, The car would start and run with a lot of bucking when accelerating. It would not start after replacing cam sensor so I began to replace other things listed above. When I turn the key, it will crank but not turn over. What could have gone wrong? I appreciate your service, thanks

I mistakenly replaced the cam sensor first, then the cps. I had a lot of jerking and dogging when I would accelerate.
After a lot of investigating, I found two severed wires under the intake manifold, they had deteriorated over time and finally disabled the start-up. Problem has been solved.
