    My crankshaft position sensor stopped working suddenly one day, and the car stopped running. The computer does not trigger ignition when it cannot determine the position of the crankshaft. Replacing the sensor fixed the problem. I had my timing belt and water pump replaced at the same time because they are in the same area and the mileage of my car was appropriate for it. It was a bit of an expensive repair, but it was worth it to extend the life of the car. I am now up to 175000 miles and have not experienced any further issues with this sensor.

    No solution yet. Same problem starting issues. But to make it crank I turn the key back and forth in a rapid motion to make it turn.

    Car shuts down while driving down the road. I have not yet solved problem. Diagnostics show no errors. I will get crankshaft sensor replaced and hope it corrects the problem.
