2008 Jeep Patriot - NEED HELP!

So, one day my Jeep just suddenly went into limp mode. All the warning lights are on and the engine is running real rough, almost stuttering too. It’s also really hard to start. Here are the steps that have been taken since we hooked it up to my boss’s code reader:

1. Replaced complete throttle body with sensor
2. Replaced the battery
3. Replaced the spark plugs
4. Replaced crankshaft position sensor
5. Had a diagnostic done by a mobile mechanic and he checked replacements and other basic checks as well. Recommended next steps 6-8
6.Replaced the PCM/plug and play (refurbished with VIN number provided for programming it in advance)
7. Replaced the O2 sensors
8. Replaced the accelerator pedal position sensor

Coils are fine, one seemed bad and we replaced it but signal was jumping so it actually didn’t need replacing, this was all prior to PCM. Missed it in above steps.

The car is acting exactly the same. Now what?

Any advice?

Thinking of having AAA take it to a mechanic because we are at a loss! Please help!!!
