There is a chance that the timing belt replacement may have had something to do with the crankshaft sensor failure. The crankshaft position sensor is located under the timing belt.
If the shop that replaced the timing belt damaged the sensor, it may have lead to this problem.
Please ask me any questions that you may have..Thanks, Josh
If the tensioner had to be replaced would this not cause alignment problems on the shaft?
Its very difficult for me to know why they had to replace the tensioner. A bad tensioner would not cause alignment problem but would allow the belt to be loose and possibly smacking into the sensor causing the problem. My guess would be thats why the tensioner was replaced
ok Josh I'm satisfied with that, makes sense.
