Customer Question
2003 760 just quit...

2003 760 just quit running going down the road yesterday. I cranked and it would not restart. Had it towed to my house and it started fine this morning ? It has ha intermittent missing on different cylinders. I had injector replaced over a year ago however a times it seems to run fine and other times not. Could it be the crank sensor. I feel likes its an electrical issue being as it changes.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the vehicle stall at low speeds? Does it sputter?

A little. Sometimes worse than others

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 760 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have a friend who has a diagnostic tool. It showed 5 and 7 mis fire today however we've checked it before and the misfires seem to change ?
