Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed out my Crankshaft position sensor 3 times, after getting code P0320. I keep
getting the code and also the vehicle shuts off at idle and idles very low, I am not sure
what to do with this. I need to get it running as it is my wife and I's only vehicle.

Check the wiring and plug to the crank position sensor. It is very close to the catalytic convertor and can get hot and melt/burn. You might have to remove the exhaust to get to it. They sell a plug with a pigtail wiring if that is the issue.
