    Do you know when was the last time, or how many miles have been put on the vehicle since the timing belt was last changed?

Go back to basics before they replace your whole engine. I'm assuming the engine cranks, yes? Is there a spark coming from the coil? You can test this yourself by pulling a wire off one of the plugs and holding near the motor while someone cranks the engine. If you're not getting a spark, we'll need to check fuses, relays, etc. I'm not saying this will be easy, but you are not getting good advice so far. I have some tips you can read, at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines but I'm willing to walk you through this if you're up for it.

On this type of vehicles' "Diamler-Chrysler" for some reason the Crank and Cam sensor go bad at the same time but it will still tell you its either one or the other, if you are still getting the Cam sensor trouble code, try replacing the Crank Shaft Position Sensor, I just had a Dodge vehicle with the same problem but in reverse, it kept saying Crank Sensor but it turned out it was the Cam Sensor. Good Luck.

Check for fire to the coil pack. These have a tendency to go bad on these cars. Could be a cam or crank sensor, these also go bad. If you haven't changed the plugs in 30K, this is due also, wires every 60K. May need to actually get it hooked to a machine to find out for sure.

could be a bad alternator or battery, if by "the motor turns over somewhat" it sounds like it tries to turn over less and less each time you try. Even if it did start it wouldn't stay running with one of these problems.

Most likely a cam sensor or a crank sensor. The timing belt didn't break did it? They also have an issue with the timing belt tensioner going bad and jumping a tooth.
