Starter makes noise as if its turning but wont start motor. Is it possible for starter to not have enough power to turn flywheel. I replaced the crank position sensor and it started once, but hasnt started since

When you hear the starter working, is the serp belt turning? Have you checked to see if there is spark to the engine (since you replaced the crank sensor?)

Are you sure the starter is turning the engine? If the belt isn't turning, that tells me either it is off the pulley or the engine isn't turning. Does the starter sound different?
