+1 on this, The one next to the crank pulley is just above the pulley, which puts it on the pass side of the engine compartment; remove the splash guard on that side for easy access. The other one is low down at the junction of the engine and transmission; remove the driver side bottom slash guard and look up.

Did you scan for trouble codes. I assume you had a trouble code that points to CKP sensors thus prompting you to replace them. You may need to replace the camshaft sensor. But b4 you do that verify your work to be sure connections are lock and tight.

Battery?, Starter/Solenoid? connections are good? Check for failed Neutral Safety Switch. maf sensor? Hope this helps.

Thanks you guys for your ideas..At first it got weird as the Scanner shows No link (no connection)..so we couldnt identify the actual problem. It was later we realize the ground connection was partially disconnected with the clip on unlock position. This was found after replacing the fuel pump. So the car started after proper ground connection.

Now ...my car cranks 2 - 3times before starting everymorning in this cold weather.It runs great and afterwards. Scanned, its says idle control system..what could be the problem now..because my idling does nt rev up and down. Please advice guys !!!
