    Throwing parts at a car trying to get it to start is an expensive way to fix something. Have your car towed to a reputable shop for a proper diagnosis and have them make the proper repairs.

    crank sensor is a common failure that results in extended crank time. it is buried behind the motor by the motor mount.
    before you do this, it is a good idea to get a real diag to pin point the failure.
