Ok since the engine light was already on before this issue,that means when a new code is stored you never know it because the light is already on.What is the make and model of your vehicle?

Ok the issue that you are describing is a failing crankshaft position sensor.

  • The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or power train control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown.

    The vehicle needs to be scanned for trouble codes.
