Can a broken crankshaft be repaired?
Unfortunately, the repair of a crankshaft is very difficult process that can do professional only. It needs to do grinding of bearing journals on the special equipment. via
Can you drive a car with a broken crankshaft?
Can I Start the Vehicle with a Bad Crank? If you wonder if it is safe to start your car when the crankshaft goes, the answer is yes if it is the very beginning of the issue. Once the position sensor becomes compromised or if you have symptoms of a problematic crankshaft that you can't ignore, do not drive your vehicle. via

What causes a broken crankshaft?
Far more frequently, broken crankshafts can be attributed to: Mechanical overload of the crankshaft through abnormal combustion, water hammers, etc. Sudden jamming of the engine due to a faulty gearbox, loose counterweights, etc. via
What does a bad crankshaft sound like?
Knocking noises coming from the engine is one of the common symptoms of a bad crankshaft bearing. Drivers usually refer to this as a rod knock which sounds like a consistent hammering that increases as the RPM does. The said noise can be an indication of a worn crank or bearings. via
Is a crankshaft expensive?
It is one of the most expensive and tedious problems that you can have fixed in your car. In order to avoid this, try and keep the crankshaft in the best condition possible. If not, you can expect to pay an average of around $2014 for a crankshaft replacement cost total. via

How much does a crank relearn cost?
The average cost for a Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement is between $178 and $226 but can vary from car to car. via
What happens when a crankshaft goes bad?
Vehicle is Stalling and/or Backfiring
Along the same lines as the symptom above, a problem with your crankshaft position sensor could cause your vehicle to stall and/or backfire. Stalling is more common than backfiring as the interruption of the crankshaft signal can cause the engine to be cut off. via
Why is crankshaft not straight?
Bearings. The crankshaft has a linear axis about which it rotates, typically with several bearing journals riding on replaceable bearings (the main bearings) held in the engine block. This was a factor in the rise of V8 engines, with their shorter crankshafts, in preference to straight-8 engines. via
Can you bypass a crank sensor?
Can you bypass crankshaft position sensor? No. You just cannot bypass the crankshaft sensor, the car will crank but will not start. The DME needs to see this signal in correlation with the cam sensor for start up and fuel injection sequence. via
How do you know if your crankshaft bearings are bad? (video)
What causes crankshaft pulley to break?
Each time the cylinders in the engine fire, torque is applied to the crankshaft. At certain speeds, the torque is in sync with the cylinders, which creates resonance. This resonance causes too much stress for the crankshaft. If this stress continues, the crankshaft will break and your vehicle will be inoperable. via
