My can wont charge my battery and it wont rev about 2500 rpm in any gear. i have replaced cam sensor and crack sensor and put new timing belt and tensioner on?

My car won't charge my battery ? Check the alternator (charging system) . You put new cam & crank sensor an timing belt on for a charging system problem ? Or after you did this stuff ,now the charging system isn't charging the battery ?

Jetta 2001- timing belt broked and now im traing to get the engin on time

There is a very good chance you bent some valves when the belt broke. If it's a 1.8 turbo then definitely, 2.0 you have a small chance that it is ok. The marks are easy to see, one notch on the cam and one on the crank, the crank lines up to the line on the plastic cover that covers the t belt, the cam lines up to the plastic backing piece that is bolted down with the valve cover. Best of luck.

2.0l avh eng. timing is on the dot, replaced broken cam sensor. still wont rev above 3200. and like i said timing is to the tooth perfect. have vag capable computer, maf readings good, compression at spec....

WOT MAF should read over 800 gs. with boost around 15psi.

If exhaust is clear and intake not plugged up with carbon...very common.... clogged injectors.

2.0 PD is self timing as long as the belt marks line up.

Also cam lobes for injectors wear out.

Still no power ? Replace injector tips/nozzles.

My 2004 Pt cruiser was running fine when it just died doing 65 on the highway one day. When you crank it over it sounds like it is out of time. I thought i broke a timing belt but pulled the cover to...

Check the compression, if it doesnt sound right, thats what you need to check first. If it has a bad timing belt, then you have bent valves for sure. Thats why timing belt needs replacement every 90k miles, along with the tensioner and water pump.
