Default ALL FIXED AND STILL NO SPARK

Over the weekend my daughters 2006 PT Convertible Touring Edition 2.4 L turbo decided to stop running. We know how devastating this can be for a new owner of a PT she calls her baby. She loves this thing. Anyway. We got the computer codes read and we were experiencing misfire issues on 2 and 4, coil sensor and camshaft position sensor issues. We replaced both and when it started up it was running really rough. of course we changed the plugs and the wires and now it wont fire and when it does it now back fires. the only thing I have yet to replace is the crankshaft sensor and the PCM. Anyone help? I checked to see if we had spark and we still do not have spark.

Did you use OEM sensors? PT's don't like aftermarket.

On all electrical replacement parts, only use one from a Chrysler dealer. They are a little more expensive but you can be 99% sure they are good. Auto stores have cheap imitation parts that sometimes don't work at all, sometimes only last a short time.

Check everything you did. Make sure the plug wires are seated correctly and plugs are gapped according to spec. What gap are you using and what did you do for the "coil sensor"?

Was their any oil on the spark plugs?
