Default 2003 Cadillac CTS doesn't start all the time

Sometimes when i go to turn on my car the car cranks but it does not turn on. but eventually it does after 5-10 minutes. When I am at stop at the light my car just dies. I have seen a few more people have had this problem too but yet to see results. Please help, this is so embarrassing exspecially when your in a drive through line. Thanks

Codes? Crankshaft position sensor would be likely cause.

Mine did the same thing for months till eventually it wouldn't start at all. Sprayed starting fluid in the throttle body and it started right up. Had an unusually high carbon build up.
