I have about 3k miles on the Ford sensor. I do trust it. I have never heard of one failing. But I don't get out much. I suppose it is possible.

If I were you I would at least dump the crank sensor.
Geez, I hate to hear I might be having future issues with my Crank sensor. Electromotive I would not recomend to anyone as others have stated here. I don't have enough time on mine to have crank sensor problems yet, I think? What were the symptoms of a failing sensor? It seems to me if the sensor failed the car wouldn't run at all, but I suppose an intermittent failure would be a real mess to troubleshoot.
