Why did your 1992 Geo tracker 4 wd crank and then cut off and wont crank back?

crank sencer When I had the same problem it was the starter solenoid. It is built on the starter so you have to replace both. After the starter/solenoid was replaced I had no more problems. P.S. If you take it to most major auto parts places they can check the starter but not the solenoid mine showed good but after I replaced it I never had that problem again.

What could cause a 99 Saturn SL2 to crank but not start Could it be the crank sensor?

Perhaps a blown fuel pump. Take a plug wire out and use a spare plug and set it on a piece of metal and crank it and look for the spark. This will eliminate an ignition problem.

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. I parked it at night and the next morning it would crank and crank but not start. - I would imagine that his problem could happen gradually if the sensor had a broken lead wire or was gradually failing. In my case it was immediate and complete failure.

WHY won't my 1996 Chrysler Sebring run then just quits running for no reason about three months ago i replaced the crank pos switch?

I had the same problem 3 times on my '97 Sebring. Twice, I replaced the crank position sensor with the (lower-priced) after-market sensors. They worked for a while, about a year and they go bad again. Finally, I replaced it with a Chrysler part, and have had no problem since. I hate to say it... but for the difference in price, this is one part I would highly recommend spending the extra money.
