Re: crank position sensor
If you have the 2.4l it is located behind the timing belt on the crankshaft. possible causes include timing belt teeth seperated or balance belt teeth seperated and taking out the crankshaft sensor and sensor plate. this is no easy task for the home mechanic.
The crank position sensor will be bolted directly into the block of the motor, and usually has just a single wire coming off of it. it will be lower on the engine block, and most manufacturers generally put in the middle of the lower half of the block. You may have to remove another part or two off of the motor to be able to get to it, but once you can get a socket on it, it should just easily back on out of there

54 - Sync Pick-Up Signal Not Detected (Camshaft Position Sensor/Ignition Pickup). recheck to see if power to sensor. make sure wire is in good shape, to cam sensor. 11 - No Crank Reference Signal At Power control module, crank shaft sensor. check to see if your getting signal from pcm. Good-day!
its not your crank positioning sensor. all the CPS does is control your spark plugs up to around 500 rpms (while trying to start) once started the ECM takes over that function in conjuction with your cam position sensor
We had a problem like this in our 97 Camaro with the V6. It would run fine until my wife went somewhere with it, parked it and then wouldn't restart. When it would sit for about an hour then it would start again. It turned out to be the crank position sensor, when the electronic part of it got hot enough it couldn't sense correctly and tell the computer how to time the spark. All it would do is crank without firing. So once we had that sensor replaced it ran good again. Good luck I hope this helps! I'm on to the next problem it's having, an occasional battery drain and a radio and electric windows that die when they want to and come back later. BuzzieTN
It is very likely the part that is giving you the problem is a Crankshaft Position Sensor, they go open circuit when they get hot, then after it cools it becomes a good circuit again, this is very frustrating, had the same issue with my Buick a few years ago, replaced the coils and the ignition module at a cost of hundreds, DID NOT CHANGE A THING, the crank sensor fixed the problem and was $30.00 from Buick.
