2001 Cadillac DTS V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 61550 miles

Car keeps cutting off while driving, however, will start right back up again. Now the Check engine light is on and had a diagnostics test done said Crank Shaft Sensor (upper and lower) are gone bad. Is this a common problem with this model Cadallic?

It is a common problem with your model year. You have relatively low miles for it's age. Sensors have seen a couple of updates and number changes along the way. Have them replaced, and the crankshaft variation relearned and you should be o.K.
