Before I replace the crankshaft sensor that the hand held computer said I need. I took out the old crank shaft sensor, cleaned it up put it back in, then tried start the car it turned over about 4 times and then stop dead, like motor froze now I replaced the old crankshaft sensor, with brand new one does same thing and it done the same thng it try to start but turns over a few times then stop dead, like motor freezes then hit start again it will turn over few more times like 15 times the stops like motor freezes.
whats my problem, the car was starting every time as long as I let it set a few hrs after I started it and let it run til it died in about 10 minutes. I will donate for correct anwser $10.00 why does my car act like its freezing up becasue I bought and put in new crankshaft sensor. Remember it done it with with old one when I cleaned it up put the old one back in. Do think I got bad crankshaft sensor, might need new or another crankshaftsensor, need help bad

Could be a dual problem here.

If the CPS is actually not doing its job I don't think It'll start up. Also you have a camshaft sensor that the computer uses to synchronize the fuel injector/s

Try doing this have helper crank engine over while you listen to the injector/s if its clicking-is it? If okay do below.

Lets do this -hook up a fuel pressure gauge and check and monitor the fuel pressure whether its within specs then comeback with some results so that we can continue to assist.

I saaid I had a crankshaft sensor I replace which would start the car, but it would die 20 minutes after running put obm on it said it needed a new one I did that bought a new crankshaft senosr, when started to start the car it would turn over 5-8 times then stop like motor froze up. Now your anwser is pressure gague. Well iam not sure what kind your link does not show what I need to hook or or where to hook up or the specs, so your anwser useless anwser like that I don't pay 10.00 for if I knew what doing I would not be asking questions need to know what kinda pressure gage specks, picture how check the gas pressure instead of charging me 10.00 becasue you could not help me should said time for mechinac

, when started to start the car it would turn over 5-8 times then stop like motor froze up

What exactly did you meant by this? Is it the engine turns over 5-8 revolution then stop and engine won't continue to crank over? Be specific

You need a fuel pressure gauge designed for your fuel system which you hook up to the fuel pressure test port on the fuel rail to check fuel pressure.

The fuel pressure should be 36psi

I've given you something to work with, you came back with no results from my suggestion, now you are complaining about useless answer if you're dissatified request for refund.
