Change the G28 Engine Speed Sensor and the Crank position sensor.

Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

These are the sensor that is causing the check engine light and shut off the car.

Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

The crank sensor / engine speed sensor is located located in the engine block, left side, just ahead of the transmission, near the oil filter housing.

This is how it looks like. The shop should only charge you a hour to replace. It is not difficult.
