Is the Check Engine light on? Do you know how to check for fault codes? Those will get you into the circuit with the problem. Chrysler makes reading them very easy by cycling the ignition switch from "off" to "run" three times within five seconds, then watch the code numbers in the odometer display or count the flashes of the Check Engine light. Check for those and holler back with the numbers.

Sounds like a crank and or cam sensor was installed wrong. Those sensors on that car are supposed to gap themselves on the first crank. Was there paper or cardboard on the end of the sensors?

This is a newer design crank sensor. It doesn't use or need the paper spacer. Also, the problem started before the sensors were replaced and remained the same after.
