It is not the sensor: The problem is in the fuel adjustment, timing, and/or gas line filter, etc. Too many reasons and needs a total checkup.

1996 jeep grand chrokee turns over will not start, replaced cam shaft censor and ECM, and coil. distibuter cap looks bad has some white dust inside and contacts burnt. could it be that?

If you did not replace the CRANK sensor on the back side of the motor this most likely is the problem and a very common one at that.this controls spark and injector pulse,unlike the cam sensor which just shows when #1 cilyder is up.
