No I haven't checked the codes. no scanner. The engine is a 2.4 L
Thank you. This start and stall condition is most commonly caused by a faulty Camshaft Position Sensor, which is mounted on the rear of the cylinder head, toward the middle of the engine compartment. This is a fairly common failure on this engine. If you could rent or borrow a scan tool or code reader, and a P0340 is stored, this supports the idea of a faulty camshaft position sensor.
Thanks I'll see if I can get a scanner
No problem. Please let me know what you find out.
Remember, the code does not have to be present for the sensor to be considered faulty, but it is supporting evidence if you have a code.
Hey Alex, sorry to take so long to get back. Forgot to rate you. Anyways, your suggestion was right on the money. It was the cam position sensor.
Thanks for your help and, again, I apologize.
