If your crank sensor was bad your would have gotten to the Stealer
at the back end of a tow truck.
Likely you have bad plug wires, likely caused by oil in the spark
If you can't do it yourself (it isn't all that hard) get an independant
repair shop that will replace the plug wires, clean out the plug
wells out of the oil that is likely there to cause problems, and
maybe replace the spark plugs with DOUBLE platium plugs.
The intake manifold must be removed inorder to get the plug wires
installed correctly. The first time is a challenge to get every
thing reconnected, but after the third or fourth time it is only
If the oil leak into the spark plug wells is really bad, once the
intake is off, the valve covers are easly removed and the valve clearences
are easly checked and maybe adjusted, which should be done every
60,000 mi. If necessary, new plug well seals with new valve cover
seals are available from AutoZone for only $70+/-
