Was the shims used from the old engine? Possible the gear on the starter is worn ? Also check compatibility between the year models.

I am thinking of buying a 1998 intriped but people say they have alot of electrical this true

Honestly, they have a lot of problems period-the engines are known for a 'sludge' buildup. the transmissions are just troublesome period and they steering and suspension systems are known to have numerous issues-the 'center-take off' links for the steering rack bushings actually fall out, causing a very dangerous driving situation. You could do much better no matter what the cost, really.

I have a 1998 dodge intriped cranks over but

I just fixed one like yours. When its is very quite near your car turn the key to the run position while listening for the electric fuel pump to run for a couple of seconds. It should be heard every time you put the key in the run position. The pump is in the gas tank.If you cannot hear it then take all the stuff out of your trunk so some one can get in and help you listen. There is a access cover in the back of the trunk that covers the pump. Have the person listen right on top of this cover. If you cannot hear the pump its probably worn out and needs replaced. There is also a fuel pump fuse and a relay. Check the fuse. The relay is under the hood and has many other relays next to it. I just swapped the pump relay with the one next to it to see if the pump would run. All the relays in my Dodge had the same part number on them. They use the same relay in many dodge things in our cars.
Then...after I replaced the pump my car seemed to be running on only 5 cylinders. I had to replace the coil pack under the hood.One of the six sparkplug wires stopped getting spark.
Now she runs like new...
I hope this helps you.

Well i have a dodge intriped 1998 and i change the engine, starter and steering colum and i cannot start the car. and i tested everything so far. so i guess i,m ready to try your solution . where do you...

Battery temp sensor won't stop it from starting! that will cause check engine light to appear! I would look into seeing if you have all your wires directly connected and run a OBD 2 scan if engine light is on should be on ! and find out what sensor is not connected!

I would like a dodge expert to help me with this problem

If the engine is a 2.7L. What is most likely wrong is his. The engine out of the 2001 has a different timing gear on the left cylinder head then the one on the 1998. In 1998 the engine computer is a SBEC controler(single board engine controler) an the 2001 is a NGC controler(next generation controler) the timing windows on those gears are in different positions. The controler doesnt know where the timing is.
