What I've learnt up till now is if crank sensor codes up, renew crank and cam sensor as the two work together. But is there a cam sensor on your car ?

Where did you get your crank sensor from?
I got mine from euro parts for 30 odd quid fitted by the AA chap.
worked only after the AA came out repeatedly first thing in the morning to get it started then fine for rest of day!

Ended up taking it to a fiat garage who put in a more expensive one and problem solved!

In all that cost me £170 fitted

Without the logged codes all we can do is make wild guesses

Even the cheapest of scanners will read the engine codes.

This will read your codes and do a whole lot more for minimal cost. http://www.multiecuscan.net

You will also need a connector (VagCom 409) and a laptop computer.

However it will not detect a faulty crank position sensor. When the sensor stops transmitting the ECU simply "thinks" the engine has stopped turning so no fault is detected. A CPS issue is found by a a process of elimination on what codes are (or are not) being picked up.
