I think the mechanic is referring to Crankshaft Position System Variation Learn, which is necessary for replacing the sensor as in your case. Though 90 dollars seems to be on the high end. I suggest getting another opinion from another known shop.

thanks for the advice danny. ill check around and see if i can get it for cheaper. its a 96 blazer with a 4.3 and my problem is it is stalling while driving... it does it while accelerating stoping or idling. i just cuts off like someone turned the key off then will start back up usually sometimes i have to wait a few minutes. mechanic said he suggest me changing the sensor. sometimes the check engine light comes on and i have pulled a knock sensor code, evaproation code and a maf sensor. i already cleaned the maf sensor.
