Default Engine Misfire

My 2004 Ram 5.7L shuts off while driving down the road. It happens sometimes 2-3 times a day some days and sometimes does not happen for 2-3 weeks.

I have CEL codes

p2302 (ignition coil number 1)
p0300 (cylinder misfire detected)
p0406 (exhaust gas recirculation)
p0306 (cylinder misfire number 6)

I have read in doing some research it can be a crankshaft sensor which can cause this problem, however when looking over the motor I noticed ignition coil pack number 1 is cracked. Should do I do a complete tune up and replace all the coil packs, plugs, and wires? Or should I just replace the crankshaft sensor and hope that fixes the problems? Hopefully this isnt a a bigger problem. Thanks

p0406 is for your egr valve. it is very easy and cheap to replace. I would start with swapping that out and then start checking your spark plugs and wires.
