I have an issue with my 1997 Toyota Corolla, crankshaft

Customer Question
I have an issue...

I have an issue with my 1997 Toyota Corolla, crankshaft sensor I think is the problem. I need to find the replacement for it and don't know where to get it. Please advise. Thanks!

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Toyota. The Toyota Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

It will start but then slowly dies out in less than a minute

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Changing all the timing belts and also change the distributor but still the same issue, so I think its the sensor

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Toyota Mechanic should know about your Toyota?

Only that its a 1997 CE
