still working to replace crank case position sensor, bolt holding sensor is under sensor, with heat shield making difficult to remove, car runs like new when it does start, hope I can get that sensor out.
Had this problem at 80,000 and 201,000 and now again at 215,000. Engine cranks but won't start, especially when warm. Starts after a few attempts. The problem is intermittent but increases in frequency over a couple months until it's constant, and at that point the car periodically stalls. Also, occasionally rides rough with what feels like a loss of power. Replaced the crankshaft position sensor both times previous and it fixed the problem.
