I went to AutoZone to get my car checked because the service engine soon light had turned on so before that they told me to change the oil because that maybe why the light turned on did that , and still was the same so they checked my car with there computer and it said that the Crankshaft Position Sensor had failed and was bad. So I changed it as soon as I bought it and drove for 5min. And it still kept cutting off and loosing force after I cranked it 3 times till it turned on.
Just changed the Crankshaft Position Sensor and my car still cuts off why? on 2006 Nissan Sentra

Change the camshaft sensor as well.

I'm confused; is this model has 2 sensors (Cam and Crank)? if so, where is the location of the crankshaft position sensor? AutoZone sell one type only (Camshaft sensor) I have replaced the cam-sensor already and my car still cutting off. Is this something related with the ECM that needs reprogramming? Based on the Nissan recalls data base, the recall about this problem affects models with 2.5L engine; However the 1.8L has exactly the same symptom. Please help, I'm so frustrated dealing with this problem; I just don't feel safe driving this car with my two kids.
