The below is from Alldata...Note it says the relearn may have to be done 5 times....Hope it helps. DTC P0315 DTC DESCRIPTOR DTC P0315 Crankshaft Position (CKP) System Variation Not Learned DIAGNOSTIC FAULT INFORMATION Perform the Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle prior to using this diagnostic procedure. See: A L L Diagnostic Trouble Codes ( DTC ) > Testing and Inspection CIRCUIT/SYSTEM DESCRIPTION The crankshaft position (CKP) system variation learn feature is used to calculate reference period errors caused by slight tolerance variations in the crankshaft, and the crankshaft position sensor. The calculated error allows the engine control module (ECM) to accurately compensate for reference period variations. This enhances the ability of the ECM to detect misfire events over a wider range of engine speed and load. The CKP system variation compensating values are stored in ECM memory after a learn procedure has been performed. If the actual CKP variation is not within the CKP system variation compensating values stored in the ECM, DTC P0300 may set. If the CKP system variation values are not stored in the ECM memory, DTC P0315 sets. CONDITIONS FOR RUNNING THE DTC - DTCs P0016, P0106, P0107, P0108, P0117, P0118, P0122, P0123, P0132, P0261, P0262, P0264, P0265, P0267, P0268, P0270, P0271, P0324, P0325, P0335, P0336, P0340, P0351, P0352, P0402, P0404, P0405, P0406, P0488, P0502, and P0700 are not set. - The engine coolant temperature (ECT) is more than 65°C (149°F). - DTC P0315 runs continuously once the above conditions are met. CONDITIONS FOR SETTING THE DTC The ECM detects that the CKP system variation values are not stored in memory. ACTION TAKEN WHEN THE DTC SETS DTC P0315 is a Type B DTC. CONDITIONS FOR CLEARING THE DTC DTC P0315 is a Type B DTC. CIRCUIT/SYSTEM TESTING IMPORTANT: The CKP System Variation Learn Procedure may have to be repeated up to 5 times before the procedure is learned. Perform the CKP System Variation Learn Procedure. 1. If the scan tool displays NOT learned this ignition, inspect for the following conditions: - A worn or damaged crankshaft or crankshaft bearings - Debris between the CKP sensor and the reluctor wheel - A damaged reluctor wheel - Excessive crankshaft runout - Any interference of the CKP sensor or CKP sensor signal to the control module 2. If the control module is unable to complete the learn procedure, replace the control module. 3. If the vehicle passes the Circuit/System Verification Test, then operate the vehicle within the conditions for running the DTC. You may also operate the vehicle within the conditions that are captured in the Freeze Frame/Failure Records List. REPAIR INSTRUCTIONS Perform the Diagnostic Repair Verification after completing the diagnostic procedure. See: A L L Diagnostic Trouble Codes ( DTC ) > Verification Tests

There are several items on top and inside your fuel tank that have to do with your emission evaporative system. You may have a leak in a valve or a hose.

Question Answered: 

You could purchase the parts and do the work yourself - I don't know what Auto Zone or those places charge but the Ignition coil is $111.00 - the wire set is $70.00 and the Motorcraft Spark Plugs are $9.00 each - That is over $200.00 just in parts without labor. I usually recommend having the vehicle professionally diagnosed....It may cost a few dollars but it is better than replacing parts that you can't afford and that not fixing the problem.

There is only 1 compressor for both a/c units and if the front is blowing cold then I would look at the rear blend door.

You can do an internet search to try to find someone that can repair it - You will probably have to remove it for them and then reinstall after repair or the only other solution is replacement - used radios can be found for those as well.
