Default 03 Turbo has a skip

Hey guys. I have been visiting here for years for info. Finally decided to join. Great site.
I have a problem that reoccurs. A year and a half ago the 03 started skipping during idle. After a couple days it started skipping during idle and when accelerating. Finally sounded like it was going to shut off. Took it to my regular mechanic. He changed the cam position sensor and the crank position sensor. Cured the problem. Last week the same problem reoccured. It did throw the 0300 and 0301 codes. Trying to save a buck I went to the Chrysler dealership and picked up the cam and crank sensors and just changed both myself. No change except it's not throwing the code now.Just still skipping or a very rough idle whichever you want to call it. Is worse under A/C load. Is there anything else I need to do with the sensors. It looked like they just went in one way and should have cured the problem. Please help.
