Thanks for the help with the sensor location, haven't changed it yet though, but have run into a few more problems that I will have to take care of first.
Decided to do the key trick again, and when I did it this time I got the 12, 11, 51, 55 as normal, then after driving I did it again, and got a new one, 45. So I went out today and pulled the codes and got P0174 again, and also got P1899 I believe it was.
I still have not yet replaced the crank sensor, and what is somewhat odd is the car is still stalling out like someone just turned the ignition off every now and then, but the last couple of times it turns right over no problem, then sometimes it will take forever, which still almost screams sensor based on my reading of other similar problems.
I read a little bit about it, but I'm not sure exactly what could be causing that particular P1899 code, it just seemed to spring up overnight. I haven't noticed any problems with the transmission or anything of that nature, I have been keeping a very close ear out for any odd noises, or odd shifting or anything like that, just to be on the safe side.
The only thing that happened before that was unfortunately the tie rod on the drivers side broke last night, while stopped at a light, and not while moving fortunately. The car was pushed out of the road by a police cruiser, so I am hoping that there is no other damage that was caused by that, but it was safer than getting hit.
But back to the question at hand, based on that, besides going ahead and replacing the crank sensor is there anything else I should be looking at as a culprit to root out the problem?
The help is greatly appreciated.
