ok

There is only 1 crankshaft position sensor, these codes most likely mean the timing chain has jumped which is a common problem on this engine. Did you plan to replace yourself or want to know what to expect at a shop?

shop

It is a 11 hour job to replace and about $300 in parts, you are looking at around $1500 total for repair total depending on where you go. Sorry about the bad news, let me know if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
