The check engine light keeps coming on. The EGR was replaced, and now the crank shaft position censor which I got an est. of $275. The car also has a hard time starting....does the clicking before it will turn over. Replaced the battery, but that didn't solve the problem. Got an est. of $295 to repl. Do these estimate seem reasonable ?

    The clicking is most likely a wearing starter, if, as you say the battery is still good. As for the crank sensor, I am pretty sure that you have to remove the timing belt, as the sensor is on the front part of the crank shaft.
