Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. The three most common causes for this condition is a bad/weak fuel pump, bad camshaft position sensor or crankshaft position sensor.

How would I figure out which one it is, simply from home before I make unneeded repairs and spend money
Expert:  Amedee replied 4 months ago.

You would need to check fuel pressure using a fuel pressure gauge and you would need to check the cam and crank signals using a scanner reading live data.

Is this website going to continue to email me over and over until I just send this deposit before verifying your answers and further asking until the issue is identified at the very least? I can ask the homeless guy in front the local auto zone and I am sure for cash he would tell me he is an experienced mechanic as well. I assumed I would be allowed time to connect the car to my grandpa's scanner and running the mentioned tests to identify the problem. I could google the three main causes also, but i cant google how to diagnose and trouble shoot to find the exact problem, thats what i am paying for here not constant email coming in my phone annoying me on my one night off. I realize you are the PRO not the person designed and managing this site, but I just wanted posted for people to see before they pay that good faith deposit that this site is going to send you multiple emails every few hours (it seems so far today from my experience) remind you of the question and that money they want from you.
