Is the sensor being damaged in anyway. When you pull the bad ones out do they have metal particles stuck to them?  How many sensors have you gone through? Have you checked the wiring right at the jack plug for damage? ie: An open cicuit that closes when unplugged and replugged but opens again after a few days causing car to die. Are the ternimal in the plug fitting good and tight on the sensors pins?

Truck won't start

If by your description I'm assuming you say "NO START" you mean it cranks but don't start..? Depending on the YR, make & model Poss. defective module? or switch itself, pickup (if app) Wrong plugs, mass air flow sensor (if app) Any C/E LTS? Scan PCM , also ck coolant system readings & ck emissions when running., crank & cam sensors are popular for that problem along with the module and pickup coil too. It's Long list but I would start with a scan of the PCM & check those crank & cam sensors 1st. Good Luck

Dies Going Down TheROad Wait About 1 Hr And Will Start Again I Replaced Cam Sensor, Now It Spits And...

This may not be the correct solution, but I do know that on my car I had to replace the CAM sensor, and within two weeks it was doing the same thing you're describing and as soon as I replaced the CRANK sensor, it fixed it. I asked my mechanic later and he said they tend to go around the same time. I would try that first. I hope this helps, good luck!

So my jeep is in horrible condition and my bank accounts are beginning to look the same it had issues running frequent stalls now it will turn over crank and immediately die things I have fixed recently...

Stip by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc..) and have an OBII scan done - they do this free. It will identify all faults that computer has tracked and will identify what is causing running issues.

My timing belt and water pump for Honda Accord 1990 was replaced and used the car for 2- 3 weeks. After driving about 15 minutes, entering the freeway, my car slowed down but the engine still running....

If you have never changed that distributor on your 1990 Accord, I would suspect it. Check for spark while cranking. The sensors inside the distributor would usually heat up, after 15-20 minutes of running, and would then die out, until the car is cooled off for a while. Look into that distributor.

Change your Crankshaft position sensor, or your camshaft position sensor. Same thing happened on my car about 3 months ago.
