Tried your wire test as described above. Engine did not stall or even miss.
That is why the crankshaft position sensor was changed due to code.PO335. ($300.00 later) Can fuel filters cause this? I removed the EDGE Juice with attitude and the stalls continued. I also ordered a Code reader/scanner. It should be here by Friday. I may have more info for you after that. The engine has not failed for a couple days now.
What is the best way to use the scanner for this situation?
I changed the fuel filter. It needed it, but still stalls. What about the fuel control module? Can it cause such a problem?
I have not completed your suggestions yet. Waiting on Code scanner ordered. it should be here 10/11/13
Ok. I got my scanner/reader and I did get an engine light. The code is still PO335 Crankshaft position sensor circuit A. The sensor has been replaced by Stone Motors. Mechanic at Stone said he checked the wires also. I have checked the wires as best possible. Suddenly got worse. It will only start intermittently now. It idles fine but when you try to accelerate it will die. At this point it won't restart for a while.
Ok. I checked all the pins on both connecters with no problems. I got 5 codes now as follows:
P0090 - Fuel Pressure Regulator 1 Control Circuit.
P0193 - Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor A Circuit High.
P0335 - Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit.
P0374 - Timing Reference High Resolution Signal A No Pulse.
P0540 - Intake Air Heater A Circuit.
Are these related or can the computer be going?
I have also been having problems with my instrument cluster intermittent. I can press firmly in the top center and it will come on.
Without clearing the computer, the same codes come back. Should I delete the codes? It may take days before any codes pop up again.
I didn't change the sensor so I don't know if it is loose. I did see that problem on YouTube. Looks like a nightmare to change one. I will pull the sensor back out and check myself. I am also going to do a continuity test on both connectors and CPS to FCM. This will take a good part of tomorrow.
Same codes came back.
I checked for 12 volts at the crankshaft position sensor. it had 10.8 v. battery had 12.4 v.
I removed the sensor and checked the reluctor wheel. It was tight.
For a while it would idle fine. If you increase throttle, it would sputter and miss fire. If in gear and increase throttle, it will die. Now it won't even start.
Starting to sound more and more like electrical issues. possible ECM
Here are the diagnostics for the code.
Run this check first. Let me know if you need the engine wiring diagrams.
If this turns out to be an injector problem, This engine should still be under warranty. 7 years, 200,000 miles.
Thanks for your inputs and hints. Sorry but none were of much help. No fault on you.
