What we see in the shop here is stretched timing(worn) chains. The crank sensor code sets because the cam timing is off. We went through the same thing with our first ones. Have your mechanic check the camshaft timing. If it's off the chain and gears will need to be replaced. It's becoming a fairly common problem. That's why it runs so poorly, retarded camshaft timing and the ECM goes into limp mode. High mileage, lock of oil changes or both are the cause.
