2002 525i won't start

Hello -

I have a 2002 525i 4 door 5-spd that when turning the ignition, begins to start but will not stay running at idle or when you try to rev the engine. I recently had some other work done at a local shop and they experienced the same symptom. They replaced the crank position sensor which fixed the problem - at least temporarily. I have driven the car several times since I picked it up form the shop but today it began exhibiting this same behavior. I am thinking there must be another cause for this problem that may be causing the crank position sensor to fail. Can someone give me some advice on this?
