Yes, you can check the fuel pressure by hooking a gauge to the Schroeder valve which I've pointed to in the picture below. The PSI should be between 53 and 63.

I'd also check the timing belt to see if it broke.

Well, fuel and spark is what's needed. Coil needs to be checked since you replaced the Camshaft sensor...BUT, did you replace it with a MOPAR sensor or one from an after market parts store? We've seen many times that an after market sensor doesn't work at all or fails after a short time. They may look like the real thing but internally, they're made cheaply and don't last.

Check the CPS(camshaft position sensor) wiring front to back,and see if there are any breaks or signs of wear......If the wiring is worn or broken even a brand new CPS may not work correctly
