I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.

i just had the same problem in my bmw 325i. Probably vaccum leak or exhaust leak. Check that nothing came loose in these areas. It takes time for your car to learn the new CPS (cam pos. sensor) so give it a few days and reset the code again and see if it works.

Hey Doug. I would change the cam sensor and see it that takes your light on. The misfire may errase with a new cam sensor. I would hold off on the crank, until I changed the cam sensor. If it still runs rough, then maybe try the crank sensor. It is possible they didn't gap the #8 plug right or it was a bad plug. I would try the cam Doug. I would hold off on the crank.

can be a sign the cam or crank sensor is on its way out, can also be a dirty MAF sensor. cam sensor will make the engine run ruff, MAF will make engine ruff and not idle properly, Crank sensor if it fails it shuts engine down as it dont know were the engine is at on its cycle. air filter changed or replaced damage air filter will coat the maf with muck and it will need cleaning off the sensor, easy to do with MAF cleaner. sensors they can fail when they to hot for them to run anymore or to cold. the resistance in the sensor goes up and down in different temperatures. some time when it goes completely out of range the engine light comes on, but a failing one that is still in range makes the engine run out of order.

If you just changed the dist and wires the timing may be off or the wires may be in the wrong position. You shouldn't have to replace them again. The cam position sensor and the crank position sensor are different and you should be able to change them yourself. You can go to your local Auto Zone and they can print you step by step instructions (USUALLY) or at least show you where the sensors are located.
