QUESTION: Has anyone VERIFIED it's the Crank Sensor? Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there.
If you find P0335 - Crankshaft position sensor circuit malfunction, then I'd say they are correct (after you eliminate wiring/connections as the cause).
