Crankshaft Sensors

Could a broken PVC elbow or vacuum line cause the crank position sensor to go out?

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. :(

Possibly caused by a bad Crank Position Sensor. Could also be the cam position sensor or the coil. They all work together.

Could be a vacuum problem--either broken or disconnected hose or bad vacuum motor under dash or coming in through firewall Defrost is the default position for this system

The camshaft position sensor is most likely located on the cylinder head of the engine. The location could vary depending on the manufacturer.
