Sorry so long to get to you. This post was closed. It is very important that when you join that you enter a new - separate post for your vehicle for several reasons.
One - I have been out of town so there is no visibility that you had or have a problem - thus you don't get an answer.
Next - there are numerous outstanding moderators that work all the posts and if they don't have visibility, then again, our customers, you in this case either don't get help or it is delayed.
Last - we keep the posts separate for one of the exact reasons you joined.....so others can benefit from the problems of others and learn from it and possible fix their car. That way we can help many more people without really answering them. If you are attached to this one then folks won't benefit if your problem is different.
Okay........let's take a look
Good on you for taking it to AZ and getting the items checked. Even though you didn't have an engine light did you have the codes checked? Sometimes the light can go on/off and set a code. So please do that.
Next - here is the info on the Crank sensor per your request.
1. Crankshaft position sensor is located behind lower timing belt cover, near crankshaft sprocket. See Fig. 26 .
