2002 Volkswagen Passat GLS 4 Cyl 1.8L


Car will crank but not start

I was getting an occasional EPC code with occasional long crank but eventual start.
I replaced the cam sensor and the car ran great for 3 days. The original problem started again and the blogs suggested cleaning MAF sensor and throttle body. I did so carefully and the car since won't start.
I get spark, and plenty of fuel at the rail. The filter was replaced 2 months ago, and car is well maintained.
I was concerned about oil sludge and the cam tensioner so pulled a compression test and all cylinders between 140 to 160.
The car has 185k miles but until recently has run beautifully.
Any help is greatly appreciated as I'm dead in water.
