This led to a series of running normal and sputtering when the rpm went to 0.

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. So does the engine start and run? If so, does it run rough?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Hello! It starts with no problem. It does not run rough per se, but it isn't as smooth as it was when I first got it.

So is the engine misfiring?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No not that I am aware. It was misfiring before I had ignition coils replaced, engine wire harness fixed, catalytic converter replaced, along with the exhaust manifold and oxygen sensor.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
They were all replaced between August and October. I haven't had issues since.
