Well, During this time when you replaced the cam sensor and stuff did you check to see if the timing belt was still intact? Do a compression check to see if you've lost compression on any cylinders. If the timing belt broke this will be the case. Chrysler typically has a plastic cover that goes over the cam pulley end of the timing belt that can be removed, it also has a check hole, to check the timing belt as well.

99 grand cherokee wont start changed crank ,cam, map,fuel filter/relay back by the tank,got 53psi on the fuelrail,new computer new relays

just a couple thoughts. Injector fuse and relay(does fuse and relay have power to and from them). My understanding is sometime Anti theft will shut down injection pulse so car can not be run. Maybe even timing chain broke. I assume there is no trouble code.

97 oldsmobile achieva wont fire changed coil pack spark plugs cam sensor still wont start

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
If you having a problem with more than one system, I want to check for rpm signal, that usually comes from the crank sensor. Not sure why you replaced cam sensor? I always want to check sensor wiring circuits before replacing anything. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

Changed crankshaft sensor,car turned over while car started i pulled battery cable to see if needed a alternator, car ran for a minute then shut off, now car will turn over but wont start again,

pulling the battery wire is the worst thing you could do
st it energized the immobilizer
next it is a good way of blowing the alternator
to check if the alternator is working simply put a multimeter across the battery terminals

My car shut off while driving, computer codes are P0562, P0340, P0700, P0016 I need help

P0016 is for camshaft/crankshaft misalignment. You should check and verify that the timing chain is still intact and that the cam/crank timing is correct. If the engine is cranking really fast and does not sound like there is compression, it is probable that this chain/chains have jumped &/or broken.

2001 crankshaft sensor changed now car want start

If the store pulled the codes and it had a code for the crank sensor, the real problem could be a bad cam sensor or a problem with the crankshaft. The crank sensor "sees" a mark or magnet on the crank and sends a signal to the computer. The computer takes that signal and compares it to the cam sensor to start the engine then runs off of one or the other. It sounds like the computer is not seeing the two signals match up.

Crankshaft position sensor? Did you check for a trouble code??? I would have to say at this point there is a code stored in memory.

It wont start. I was driving and it just shut off, didnt spudder out just shut off. it turns over like a normal start just doesnt crank. ive replaced the cam sensor behind the hormonic balancer. the fuel...

That's the crankshaft sensor by the harmonic balancer. Is it a V-10 or what engine? It could be the cam sensor which is located on the front of one of the heads I don't remember which one. Did the "Check Engine Light" come on? There should be code that will point you in the right direction. Also, check the fuses.
