oh i forgot to ask, your new cam shaft position sensor, it's factory or aftermarket? our pt's only like factory parts. If you got your sensor from autozone or something like that, you may want to take it back and get one from the stealership, it's gonna be like $30's more but you pay for what you get.

How many miles on your car??

I would seriously recommend you bring it to a dealer and ask to have a tech who has done a few of these to repair it. Get a new mopar tensioner, belt, waterpump and if your motor mount is toast replace it. Might also have the cam and crank seals done at the same time. this will be a pricey repair but you should be good to go for another 90K miles.

Per the cam sensor, if you bought a new mopar unit keep it in servie and throw the old one in your glove box ,it is still good. you got the code because your belt snapped. If you bought aftermarket parts store brand, toss it because it will cause more headaches. Buy only Chrysler sensors, note I dont work for them but trust me you dont want aftermarket electrical sensors in these cars.

X2 what VNT said ,replacing all of these items while you are right there will benefit you later down the road,and your welcome, a lot of the old timers on this forum would ask or tell you the same thing,, i just type faster sometimes,and stay around if you have anymore questions post it some one here will answer you
