The crankshaft sensor allow the computer to know where the crankshaft is in relation to its rotation. it basically tells the computer the engine speed, at what point to spray fuel into the engine and how much and also times the spark to ignite the fuel and air in the cylinder. . Some cars wont start with a bad crank sensor and some will start but will run bad.

The 1998 Saturn SL2 will show a code 340 and 341 for a camshaft position sensor because this part is also considered the crankshaft position sensor on the Saturn. The location of the crankshaft position sensor is behind the alternator on a 1998 Saturn SL2. Both crankshaft and camshaft are the same thing This vehicle is not equipped with a camshaft position sensor. Saturn is the only manufacture that uses a auto pulse generated inside the ignition control module in conjunction with the pulse received from the crankshaft position sensor to determine ignition and injection timing. If you have a code for camshaft position sensor the issue is with the pulse generator in the ignition control module.
