Yes, that sensor on the left is very broken. You are going to need to get those parts out of the block to get the new one in.

While that sensor is definitely bad and while a defective G28 would definitely cause a no start condition, your starting issue sounds more fuel pressure related, like it is dropping pressure when it sits for a long time. There are a few things that could cause that, like a leaking injector, leaking high pressure fuel pump, in-tank pump (it also includes the filter and low pressure regulator), fuel pump control module, etc. The fuel pump relay fault seems to point to the fuel pump control module. Oddly, the fault you show is not listed in the list of possible faults in the DTC chart for that ECU. Was there another number listed also, other than 01259? Do you hear the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds when you open the driver's door?

Generally, crank sensor fail when they get hot, and won't read until they cool off again, which is kind of the opposite of what you are seeing.

Interesting issue you have...

The housing is plastic. You pretty much pulled the guts out of it. Tricks to get it out? Whatever works... Just be careful not to push the pieces into the engine.

800k Ohms is pretty much open. It doesn't matter now if the old one was good or not. It is junk now.
