Did this ring have a toothed metal ring attached to it? And what type of engine do you have? 4.0 liter engine? I suspect you have a major timing issue now and the engine may have been damaged.

I agree, it has destroyed the crank sensor, replace both parts and that will fix it. Check the belt also!
