What has your mechanic done to lose your trust? Who is doing the diagnosis and replacing the parts, you or the mechanic? Diagnostic fault codes never say to replace parts or that they're defective. They only indicate the circuit or system that needs further diagnosis. The sensor should only be replaced after all other potential causes are ruled out. The cam sensor itself will only be the cause of the problem about 50 percent of the time.
Why was the crankshaft position sensor replaced and who did that? That adds another variable to the list of potential problems.
