Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

If crankshaft sensor is the code that keeps coming up then it is the sensor, ring, wiring or ecu, tests and proper diagnosis will determine the problem and will require a scan tool.

Thank you!
