Its a chain and a belt
no start do you have spark and fuel
did the chain brake how s the compression
if compression is OK and you have spark check if you have cam signal
disconnect the cam sensor and try to starter it will crank for a bit
let me know

OK !
They are not the best engines made but
still doesn t explain why no spark
if you have good compression
no noises just no start and no spark !
That s is a 1st for me changing an engine because has no spark
seek a different opinion
let some one else look at it

Let's start from the begining. What engine is in your Inrepid? From your mechanic's answer it sounds like you have a 2.7L V6. This engine get a unfair bad rap from a lot of technicians. A lot of people don't like this engine because they don't understand it or the sight of three timing chains scares them. Now here are some important questions.
. Did the enging jump time?
. Are you doing this for maintaince?
If it did jump time then you most likley will need an engine. One tooth off could bend several valves.
