Hello and thank you for your question, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.
When the engine will not start can you take a look at the check engine light and see if it comes on with the key on and watch and see if it goes out while cranking the engine?

Yes it does

Any other suggestions though? It tends to leave me stranded won't start if I drive for a little bit so I'm afraid to take it anywhere
Expert:  Ronnie replied 1 year ago.
A lack of spark with everything you have replace is very likely going to come down to either a connection concern or a possible failing PCM (computer) unfortunately to narrow it down we need to do some testing when it will not start.

I guess it must be connection pcm was also replaced
Expert:  Ronnie replied 1 year ago.
Or a connection from the CKP to the PCM.
