When you changed the cam sensor you got or lost spark?
You might be flooded from all of the start attempts. If you have spark try putting the gas pedal to the floor and holding it there as you crank to try to clear the cylinders of excess fuel.

The timing belt is a possibility, but I'm hoping it's something I can check myself. I also don't know why it would've slipped.
When I tried starting it before changing the sensor, there were clear cycles as I cranked. Now it's more of a constant sound with less distinguishable cycling. I'm not sure if cycling is the technical term, but that's how I'd describe it.

the cam controls the fuel.
the crank controls the spark.
check the timing.
