Hi Sarah,VX is common for crank angle sensor failure, it could be one of a few other things, like poor contact in the DFI module connector, poor contact of the EFI relay, or fuel pump starting to fail.If it won't start right now, can you pour some water over the passenger side of the engine balancer (behind the balancer) at the front of the motor, then see if it starts after about 30 seconds?Hope this helps.Gary
