what do you mean what is this?
When the car shuts off while driving, what do you have to do to get it restarted? Does it start right back up? Does it have to sit for a while?

usually i coast to a stop , turn the ignition to off and turn it back over and it runs fine. that happened 2 or 3 times within 6 months. this week it happened approx 5-6 times and this morning it wouldnt start, it cranks like it is turning over but it doesnt start
This condition usually occurs due to a bad crank sensor. Certainly the stalling while driving. I'm not sure about the no start this morning, but it may finally have failed all the way and that will keep it from starting. Can you see the tachometer wiggle when you are cranking it, or does it stay at zero?
