My 1999 Chrysler Sebring JXI will not turn over?

So, I recently bought my Sebring JXI. It's a V6, and I seem to be having issues with it starting. It will turn over, but not start. I found out that it was not creating a spark, so I replaced the spark plugs and wires. Still won't work, so I replaced the distributor cap and rotator. Still no spark. So, I tested the fuel pump. It's working just fine. Now I take it to a shop. They replace the entire distributor. It works GREAT. I was super pleased, but now (not even a week later) it is repeating the issue. I have no clue what it could be.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Your vehicle uses an internal ignition coil with a dstributor all built into one assembly. Your vehicle uses a CMP Sensor or camshaft position sensor to tell the ignition coils when to fire. If that sensor is faulty then you get a no spark condition.

If the vehicle is out of time because of poor workmanship due to a mechanics own error then yes bring it back to the shop. Have the shop foreman supervise the diagnostic strategy that the mechanic uses. This ensures that your problem is fixed.

Is your problem fixed? Please tell me what was wrong. I have same car model and code errors left and right. first fixed the distributor, then the alternator, then fixed the crank position sensor, and now code erroring the dang distributor assembly again, Firestone repeated the distributor and now still is running craptastic... They are not sure what it is either. The code is still erroring the distributor assembly.

Sounds like a timing issue to me. Especially after a full distributor replacement. If I were you I would take your car back to the shop and have them reset your timing and ensure all of the bolts are secured down tightly.

It COULD possibly be a computer error, im not to much into Chrysler but I am sure they can see if your ECM is throwing codes.

Just ideas

no spark relates to the camshaft sensor, if its faulty it

signals the A D S relay which cuts off fuel and spark .
