I think you should get the water pump fixed first and scan test for codes

I agree however car doesn't start and I assume all codes have been cleared due to disconnecting battery to work on water pump. Also I am the farthest thing from a rookie at mechanical repairs been fixing all my own stuff for 25 years from logging skidders to weedeaters to foreign cars. So I realize the obvious things just didn't want to read the whole damb book and test a bunch of sensors if someone else has had this experience thanks.

If your that experienced then I assume you checked for spark and fuel pressure? If you have no spark I would start with the crank sensor which is a common problem with those vehicles....

Thank you and yes I did check those things and have both fire and fuel so that sends me in the direction I was thinking cam sensor being located rate under the leaking water pump. May not be right but that's my guess thanks again
