Help me please

Hey everybody, first time poster here. I have a 2001 wrangler of course and been having some trouble with getting her to turn over. Whenever I go to start her up she will eventually catch but I have to pump the gas then keep it pinned at 2 grand to be able to leave the driveway. I read some posts on here and that lead to me changing out the crank shaft position sensor. After doing so it got a little better but I still have to pump the gas and rev up before putting it in gear. I'm far from being a mechanic, but does anybody have an idea on what the heck I can do to get her back to normal????
