Usually if the sensors are faulty, they would throw trouble codes.

Resistance of the sensors are the basic test.
For CKP (crank position) sensor they be between 1850 to 2450 ohms.
For CYP (crank cylinder position) sensor they be between 1850 to 2450 ohms.

For resistance testing, it does not matter which is positive or negative.

You're welcome.

Just noted I made an error in the specifications.

For CKP (crank position) sensor they should be between 1850 to 2450 ohms.
For CYP (crank cylinder position) sensor they should be between 800 to 1500 ohms.

Sorry for that.

Have a nice day.

What gradings do you have for the ohmmeter?
Is this a digital or analog voltmeter?
If digital, you need to note the ending, k ohms, ohms or m ohms.

2.14 kohms means it is 2140 ohms.

Let us get back to the basics.

What was done prior to this occurring?
Have you checked the engine compression?
Are the sparks bright blue or orange?
Have the ignition coils been tested?
Were the timing belts checked?
How long has engine been idle?
Have you tried starter fluids?
