I have a 2001 Saturn LW300 that would stall. after I let it

Customer Question

I have a 2001 Saturn LW300 that would stall. after I let it sit for 5 minutes it would start and be fine for a few days then it would happen again. I went to auto-zone and they did a scanner check and it said my Crank position sensor was bad. I replaced the sensor and now it wont start at all.
JA: Does the vehicle stall at low speeds? Does it sputter?
Customer: Yes it did at first then when I would start it all it would do is start then idel high then shut down.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have replaced the cam position sensor and also the crank sensor since thats what auto-zone stated the problem code was.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I looked up on line and all the problems it was doing point to the crank sensor.

NO prorblem. No worries. So the engine currently cranks over but does not start? Does it have spark?

Before I replaced the Crank sensor that I purchased at atuo zone it would start then rev up then stall. Now it wont start at all.
