Bad Crank Position Sensor?

Does anyone know if a bad crank Position Sensor can cause irregularities in transmission shifting?

Sorry to dig this post up after so long, but I just had the CPS go on me while driving on the highway. I can safely confirm that all went suddenly quiet

The engine shut down and refused to start again and I had to tow (and by tow I mean on a flat bed of course) to my mechanic's where he confirmed that the CPS had gone bad. There was also some relay that he replaced and the engine came back to its normal life again.
