You need to introduce yourself

Next, this is a vehicle which needs the attention of a dealer service department since it should still be under warranty unless it has over 36K miles. It will also be under emmissions warranty for a longer period of time unless someone has abused it, modified it, etc. Although the emmissions and powertrain warranties usually transfer to a new owner, why would a person want to buy a car knowing it doesn't run?

I had a 1986 dodge 600 2.2L turbo which did this when the hall effect pick-up plate in the distrubutor failed.

A good starting point would be to retrieve the trouble codes. There is a certain sequence of steps on a Chrysler to follow where these codes can be pulled without a code reader. I don't remember what these steps are but can look them up when I have a little more time.
