Default Reoccuring Problem? Crank Shaft Sensor?

I posted this as a reply to my original post of the problem, but I am not sure I should have done that, so here it is posted here.

We fixed the crankshaft problem a year ago, and now it is doing the same thing, but when we took it in, the only code that showed is P0128 which has to do with coolant. (Per the advice I read on another thread we put some more coolant in it, but I do not know what to look for if it is the thermostat or a sensor).

Anyway...Since it did not show P0336 (I think it was), I do not know what to look for. The guy who read the code said perhaps it is the computer.

Also the car has a hard time starting. We had the fuel filter changed; it made a difference for about a day. We had some loose wires fixed too, but it still keeps having a hard time. It has that sound of like there isn't fuel getting where it'* suppose to...Fuel Pump? Fuel Line? Any suggestions? I guess it could be the started too???

UGH. Every time I turn around something is wrong with this car = (

Thanks!

First I would do a fuel pressure test. You want about 48psi If it'* lower then that, then the fuel pump is getting tired.
