yes the check engine is on but is being time before this start it to happen

Ok since the engine light was already on before this issue,that means when a new code is stored you never know it because the light is already on.What is the make and model of your vehicle?

audi a6 Quattro 2.8

Ok the issue that you are describing is a failing crankshaft position sensor.

  • The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or power train control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown.
  •  

    The vehicle needs to be scanned for trouble codes.
