Question about 2003 Chrysler 300M
There is a possiblity another 02 sensor went. This is not a trial and error thing. Stuff happens. I suspect that the timing belt was replaced without lining up the cam gears because they either did not have the tool to hold them while the old belt was off or who knows. The dealer entered the game later not knowing you had other work done or you may have explained to the service writer who knows less about cars than you do. The dealer techs should look for cam data if possible with a scan tool before they assume 02 alone and address your current check light warning. Cam timing will give you all the drivability systems you mentioned. Don't for get a clogged gas filter.

I understand your frustration. O2 sensors are the most oversold car parts on the market. The reason for this is there is never a diagnosis done to find why the sensor went bad. Sensors normally show check engine when the fluctuation of fuel air mixture is beyond the computers pre-set range the computer wants to read. I would check the plug wires, plugs or coil pack. This would cause too much gas to be burned setting off the sensor. Also if one of your fuel injectors is bad, there may not be enough fuel in the mixture. Also would set the light off. In reality there are 100s of things that could make the O2 sensor send a trouble code. I hope this helps you better understand what may be happening with your vehicle.
