Hi there Jeff,

I see you have asked a similar question twice.

If your car does start and run until hot and then cuts while driving, a common fault is the crank angle sensor.

Carry a drink bottle full of water with you, when it cuts out and only keeps cranking, pour some water over the crank sensor near the harmonic balancer, if it starts up again straight away, the sensor is faulty.

I would replace the balancer at the same time, if this is the case.
