Why was the crankshaft position sensor replaced? The engine won't start or run if it is defective.
" I was told that because it had been replaced it would probably only last a week but could last longer"
This doesn't make sense. Who would perform a repair that will only last a week? What logic leads to expecting a part to fail because it was replaced? We replace sensors and other parts all day long on dozens of cars. How many of them do you see sitting on the side of the road because their week is up?
Unless you can add something that suggests something is going to fail, a car you're afraid to drive is hardly a car worth owning. My SUSPICION is you're worried about something that doesn't warrant being worried.
