Hey Tony==The crank sensor is on the rear of some jeeps attached to the bell housing. It in itself won't cause overheating. If you have electric fans, make sure they are operating properly. Make sure the radiator is flowing coolant and not have a bunch of build up. Good luck Joe

Will a faulty crank position sensor keep a car from starting?

Yes. I had this problem on a 2000 Grand Cherokee. The problem came without any warning that I could notice.

In my case it was immediate and complete failure.
