No it wouldn't, but jump starting the car or over heating the engine would crap out the sensor.

I'm in the process of changing my crank position sensor now, but my original broke in my engine block ... so I need to drill a hole so I can pull it out without pushing it in my block. :(

You either have a bad oxygen sensor or a vacuum leak. Code P1133 indicates a faulty heated oxygen sensor but a vacuum leak could also cause this code.

Your 1984 fiero 2.5 2m4 is idleing around 2700 RPMs need troubleshooting you already replaced the oxygen sensor but its still idleing high?

It could either be a leaking vacuum line, EGR Valve or I believe its a idle position sensor on the throttle body. If you're looking for a vacuum leak, spray some WD-40 around the vacuum lines till the engine RPM increases. You'll know right away. If it is a vacuum leak it could also be where the intake manifold joins the engine. In either case it is not a good idea to drive it as it could ruin your engine.
