It's been replaced twice, at 95000 mi and three years later at 132000 mi. Both times starting became hit and miss and when it did start it had to crank for a while.

Same problem. Had the sensor replaced, cost almost as much as car is worth
I experienced this problem when it was just over 100,000 miles. The crank sensor was replaced and everything was fine after. The symptoms I experienced were: hard to start and stalling intermittently.

My car has been stalling out when I am driving down the road and there are times here it will turn over for long periods of time but not want to start when I try to restart the car. It I noticed it really does it when im at a red light or when slowing down to make a turn.
Engine would turn over after periods of rest without issue. Car would stall ~5 minutes of driving later and would not turn over for ~15 minutes after. Took to mechanic and had crankshaft position sensor replaced.
