The crank position sensor is at the top of the bellhousing.. drivers side..

If you're not throwing any codes start with the basics.. there are 4 things required for a motor to run correctly.. fuel, air, spark, and compression..

Pull a plug out, ground it out, have a friend crank it and check for spark.. start troubleshooting at the most common points of failure, and don't just throw parts at a problem.. take the time to test things before just replacing them.. google and a multimeter will help :-)
