Using genuine parts? (Could be cheap shite) And are you certain you fitted the cam sensor right and didn't damage anything in the process?

What fault codes are you getting? As theres a few related to cam sensor. You are resetting the codes after fitting the sensor as it is needed im sure.

Cam sensor error may indicate the timing is out.

I know its tempting to blame the sensor and want to change that, but if its telling you the truth and the timing is implausible then you may have other issues.

If you're talking about a Z14XEP 2005 ish onwards then you may be looking at stretching of the timing chain or wear on the chain guides.

Can also have timing problems on the early ones but the belts normally snap and you'd have full failure rather than the chain which will still run but give you codes.

Need to see the actual P codes as well.
