AnswerYes, but, if the sensor is permenately bad it probably wouldn't start again. It is , however, possible that it has an intermittent problem, causing it to stall, buck, or misfire. it could also have contamination on the flange (the part on the crank pulley), oil saturated wiring, or loose /shorting out wires. a visual inspection of under the timing cover will help.

If it stalls and restarts right away, check more into fuel pump problems and airflow monitoring systems, possibly even injector pulse (cam sensor related).
