Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. if the plugs are wet it is because you have leaky injectors causing the p0172. and the fuel laying on top of the pistons is not burning fast enough, causing the p0300.

P0335 CHRYSLER - Crankshaft Position Sensor Possible causes Faulty crankshaft position sensor Crankshaft position sensor harness is open or shorted Crankshaft position sensor circuit poor electrical connection Signal plate may be damage Starter motor may be faulty Starting system circuit Dead or weak battery Sometimes and in some models, low battery voltage or a weak starter can trigger a Crankshaft Position Sensor code. Before replacing any parts, recharge or replaced battery. The crankshaft position sensor (POS) signal is not detected by the Electronic Control Module (ECM) during the first few seconds of engine cranking Possible symptoms Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) Possible lack/loss of Power Engine may stall while driving P0335 CHRYSLER Description The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) also known as the crank position sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the crankshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Electronic Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor. When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.
