What engine?

P0320 and P1391 are crank sensor codes. The symptoms you have certainly point towards one possibly going bad.

if this is a 4.0 straight six you can find the crank sensor on the drivers side of the transmission where it blots up to the engine on the top side. If you look in between the intake and the firewall you should be able to locate the harness and follow it to the sensor. The sensors are relatively inexpensive and would be an excellent start.

1996 Jeep GC Laredo, Drove it home, parked it in the back yard, un-hooked a little trailer, went to start it back up and all it does it crank. No Fire. I pulled a plug and no sparks. Can't...

On the straight six engine they have a crank shaft sender located on front of transmission it reads the flywheel turning. When they go bad it will not fire and can quit like yours did.

My BMW 520i starts up when cold but when it's warmed up and I turn engine off it won't start it's a 1997 straight six tiptronic whats causing this?

If the engine cranks but fails to fire, the car may be flooding due to a failed temperature sensor. There are several, but the most likely problem would be the water temperature sensor.
If the engine fails to crank when hot, the starter motor is failing and will need to be replaced.

How do you replace the crankshaft positioning sensor?

well you did not list the engine . so here is all of them on the 2.0 or 2.4- 4 cyl the crank sensor is located behind the generator just abouve the oil filter mounted to the eng block. on the 2.5 V6-remove the speed control servo from the drivers side strut tower. (its located just under the distributer) remove the retaining bolt and pull the sensor straight up out of the transaxle housing

My check engine light is on and I've been told it is the cam sensor, but I can't find one. It's a 2005 nissan altima. Do they have a cam sensor and a crank sensor?

This engine has both. Nissan recommends replacing them at the same time, I think your local Nissan dealer will tell you the same thing.The cam and crank sensors are in the rear of the engine.Looking from the drivers fender find the right rear corner of the valve cover and look straight down the back of the head. the cam sensor is 3-4 inches down from the valve cover gasket surface.the crank sensor is basically straight down from the cam sensor but much harder to see. it is just above the oil pan gasket surface...

2004 suzuki verona..where is bank 1 senor 1 located on the engine

This car has a transversely mounted straight six I believe, which is really unusual, but that means it only has one bank, so "bank 1, sensor 1" will be the upstream O2 sensor (between the engine and the cat) and "bank1, sensor 2" will be the downstream sensor (behind the cat).
