Yes the crankshaft position sensor would cause this and is a common problem. To tell if this is what is causing the concern when you turn the ignition switch on the check engine light should come on.When you go to the start position while engine is cranking it should go out for a few seconds and still while cranking it should come back on(all of this usually takes about 10secs).If it come back on while cranking the the computer sees the signal from the sensor,if it does not come back on after 10 secs of cranking then it does not see it and this will be your problem.
Now it could be just a connector problem or the sensor itself could be bad.You can try and unplug it and plug it back up and see if it will start. If this is your concern I would recommend replacing the connector and sensor. It will be located next to the crankshaft pulley on the engine.

I would say replace ignition coil, that might me the problem, otherwise it can be the ecu, which might have some electrical problems not allowing the car to stay running. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2 spark plugs not firing
check to see if your plugs need changing and then check your HT/LT leads on the plugs as they may be loose or water clogged somewhere or have a split wire that is just touching enabling it to fire a few times
