Default 1998 chrsler sebring convertible runs poor

I have a 1998 chrysler sebring convertible that I just bought cheap. The guy said it would not start. It has the 2.5 engine. I got it running I replaced the distributor and the Crack sensor it starts right up but when you push on the gas its like its flooding out it just bogs right down. Now the Vehicle did sit for over a year. So I am thinking poor Gas or plugged injectors or plugged fuel filter. Oh yes also the RPM gauge jumps around while it is idling, I called the guy I bought it from and he said it was not doing that before it died.

Does anyone have a better suggestion?

Seems like most of the time when you replace the crank sensor, you need to replace the camshaft sensor too. Change the oil, put some fresh gas in it. Check for trouble codes in the computer. Not all codes light up the check engine light.
You got it cheap, now you start paying.
