Check fuel pressure first when it does not start. If that is ok, ossible distributor failure which is very common on these models.

Fuel pressure is great and its has a new distributor and fuel pump I'm thinking maybe the crankshaft sensor is going bad is that possible

Could be the distributor as I suggested. It contains the crank, cam and tdc sensor.

KHL has a good suggestion as it also a common failure. It is under the dash on the left side kick panel.
