try changing the pick up sensor ,and cleaning the connections on the coil pack,could just the be the connections on the pick up sensor itself.Hope this is just your sunday car and your daily car is a small engined shopping basket type of car.thinking here and its hard as only ever seen one on an american tv show but if its all dropping off ???what about the ignition contact switch on the steering lock,its not loose or contacts worn ??my sunday car is a 4lt jaguar XJ6 sovereign so i cant call the pot black can i.But whatever it is, this is a stupid thing causing this and its down to trial and error to locate the fault

The crank sensor is easy there is no re-set get a new one. If that doesn't fix it take it back and put the old one back in. As far as reseting the security on this vehicle no legit person over the internet can give you this info. legaly. However if you are losing inj. signal check the computer and module.

any leaks in intake or exhaust upstream of the sensors, sparkplug
condition and engine controls/sensors for out of range operation
(including fuel pressure and condition of regulator)
IAC should be cleaned and checked as this can cause poor idle and shut down. I'm not saying not to change O2 sensors, but unless everything else if OK, it probably won't help.

Your cylinder 4 misfire would most likely be a bad plug wire. And it is common for cars to have driveability problems with a crankshaft sensor code, esspecialy after the car has warmed up that is when you will notice the problem. The crank sensors are pretty simple to change and relativley inexpensive maybe around 40.00 for the part. If you look around the crank shaft pulley you will see a sensor with usually 2 bolts and a couple of wires attatched to it. If the vehicle gets to a point that it won't start, spin the motor over watching the tach on your dash and if it is not moving while cranking that means the sensor gave out. Good luck. swiftautorepairs.com
