Looks like it will be a wiring/connector issue or timing belt/chain issue - P0016 for more info.

1999 bmw 316i compact flat spots & hesitation from 3500 RPM

the flat spot is a missing instruction in the CPU program in the ECM. Run the fault codes to check for faulty sensors or have the CPU program reset using the scanner. Loose wires would give a problem all over and not just at particular rpms

My patriot got coolant into the oil after a freeze plug popped on my engine on christmas. Thinking it was the head gasket, we pulled the engine apart and replaced the all of the gaskets, cleaning...

New parts don't mean they work.
Also check the pins in the sensor and plug.
Bent pins are common and may be shorting the circuit.
Is there a crank signal at all on your scan tool?
Do you see a cam sensor signal?
If you have a RPM gauge on the dash is there a reading on it?
If it is showing RPM your engine should be seeing a timing signal.
Most will at least run if they see one (cam)or the other (#1 position on the crank).

P 0016 code

Code 16 is for a problem where the correlation between the crank sensor and the cam sensor for bank one is off. So yes it could be the cam sensor or the timing belt. If compression is normal on all 6 cylinders I would expect to find a bad sensor.

Code p 0016

Code 16 is for a problem with the correlation between the cam sensor and the crank sensor. The two sensors are telling the computer different things.
The camshaft could be out of time, or it could be something with either sensor.

The primary intent of this code is to detect slipped camshaft timing. Have you checked the camshaft timing? Your symptoms indicate you are a tooth off.

My 96 Taurus Wagon bucks a sputturs when hot and won't go over 3000 rpm's, i had the cam positioning sensor replaced and that didn't do it and it was 100 dollar part, would it do that if t

I would say the code said the sensor was not giving the right signal. Very seldom does a code state to replace a part.
There may still be a problem with the camshaft or the relationship to the crank. (timing)
As for the temp sensor, if it is faulty you should get a trouble code for it.

Replaced crank shaft position sensor from autozone. erased all codes. still showing code p1345. ive been told to use acdelco. am i doing something wrong?

Code p1345 is the crankshaft variation learn.You need to get the crankshaft variation learn done for the code to clear.You will need a scan tool.This should take care of the check engine light.Hope this helps.Good luck.
