Beru makes excellent products...or at least they have in the past. I would trust them more than lots of Bosch products these days.

Thanks, Sam.. Could you list the reputable brands,I always forget. I know Bosch, Behr, Sachs, Wahler, and Lemforder.

All of those are good brands, as in they design good OEM products. But both Bosch and Behr seem to be outsourcing their non-OEM production more and more.

Sam, you need front and rear CRANK position sensors (CPS).

You already replaced the camshaft position sensor.

It's all good. Just trying to prevent you from getting stuck with a electrical part you can't return.

I believe fae is a spanish brand. If its fae vs. beru, I would go with beru even if it cost twice as much

Update!

I haven't ordered the CRANK position yet. I did some trouble shooting Yesterday and found the indeed it is the rear crank sensor. the wire sheath is bad and somewhere they are shorting. but after messing with them and moving them around I've seem to have de-shorted it. So it works for now. But don't worry I'll order one soon.

I bought cheap Chinese parts for my blower regulator and motor and they are both still running strong three years later. Those are the only' Chinese' parts I've used on my car or the cheap Ebay parts as some call them but I have not had any issues with them. I would recommend using the proper brands, however
