I changed the crankshaft sensor and it started, but kept shutting back off and after a few times it would not start at all.

Was the crankshaft position sensor damaged visually? Also have you checked for spark after it would not start again?

Have you checked for fuel pressure? With the key in the run position is the security light on solid or flashing?Can you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key to the run position?

The computer said it was the cam shaft sensor, would that do it, because it started up again and then shut off

I'm thinking that it might be the computer, this is what it's doing, and you can give me your opinion on it, when I erased all of the codes it runs fine until the check engine light comes back on then it quits, erase the codes, runs fine again, I've changed the cam shaft sensor, the crank shaft sensor, no differents, do you think it's the computer?

We need the codes I have seen cars not start till a certain code is cleared from memory. Doesn't mean you have a bad computer. Need exact code numbers not code descriptions?

OK some of those codes for the camshaft mentioned something about the timing belt being out of time. That's why I asked abut it.
