Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you.

Hope the crank sensor fixes it when renewed.

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

The crank sensors never go on these trucks. If you replaced the Cam Sensor with one from your local auto parts store, that is considered a after market sensor. After market sensors never work on these trucks. They are known to cause no start issues, hard start issues and running issues. If you did get the sensor from your local auto parts store, I would strongly suggest to see if you can return it and get a Cam Sensor from the dealer for your issue.

Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

When it comes to electrical parts, you always want to stick with getting them from the dealer. After Market sensors always tend to cause issues and have you replacing parts you don't need and actually end up costing you more money than if you had just gotten the part from the dealer.

This is why I am making this suggestion. I see this on a daily basis.
