The car is not starting, several people have told me that this sensor is the problem. I hope it works. Thanks

Remove a spark plug and check for spark.....if you have spark that is not the problem, if you have spark then the next step is to do a fuel pressure test. Fuel pressure should be 35-45 psi if low replace the filter and check again if still low verify you have good poewr/ground at the fuel pump and replace. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
