Sounds like your engine timing belt is shot.. If this is the case then you have a badly injured engine.. chances are the valves are bent and you have other damaged parts.. you will need to have the engine rebuilt and retimed.. or replace it..

I have a 2002 Ford Taurus and I had my heads and gaskets go bad replaced them seemed to be a pretty simple job but after the installation check engine light came on has rough idle, engine codes were bad...

This is most definatly a grounding issue. Re-Check all grounds. Even check the connections at the PCM. Check for a missing ground ******** the back of the heads. Did you unhook the battery before preforming the tear down? If not you may have fried the PCM.

I got a camshaft position sensor malfunction code P0340 from my code reader and needs to know how to repair the problem for a 2000 Ford Focus SE. My car will not crank.

it sounds like you have bigger problems if your car does not crank(turn over) then your timing belt could have broken and the one piston could be hitting a valve causing it to be locked up.normally when any sensor is bad car engine still cranks it just doesn't start.

Po443 code 2002 ford taurus

That code is for the Evaporative Emissions. It could be a bad Evaporative Emissions Canister Valve or just a bad vacuum line or my granddaughter's 1997 Ford Escort had that code and her gas cap was NOT on. Now when you figure out what one it is disconnect the battery for 10 minutes to reset the computer.
