first the car wouldn't start code reader said it's the camshaft positioning sensor, installed a new one. Still won't start code reader says it's the MAF, installed a new one. Then it turned over fine for the first two tries then it started turning real slow. It kind of sounded like the Battery was dead, but it was turning the motor over but real slow. Took the battery in it checked out. Pulled the starter took it in and it checked out. Any Ideas?

I would check out the battery ground and clean connections. Next check out the battery positive cable after cleaning the connections ohm the cable actually both if you have an ohm meter. Listen if the fuel pump runs when cranking the fuel pump relay went out on my 2006.
I would check if your getting spark.
Important was your timing belt tight when you changed the Camshaft sensor? Was the teeth good on the belt. I had a timing belt tensioner go bad on my 2006. It sounded funny when turning over but didn't set a code. The belt should be real tight when you replaced the camshaft sensor.
I took the battery in on my diesel tractor using my tester it went to zero when I put resistance on it their tester said it was good. It wouldn't turn over my tractor after warming up the glow plugs.
Have your wife or friend try to start your vehicle place a volt meter on the battery if the voltage drops below 11 volts recharge and retry if it still drops buy a new battery.
