We have seen problems with the crank shaft position sensor cause this type of problem. Only use factory parts for this sensor.
Thank you. Can you tell me if this is a major mechanical repair? Could the average (yet still good) mechanic fix this? Will computerized electronic checks be required to test after the repair? This makes a difference on who I take my car too and with my dealership significantly out of the way, this is important.
If the vehicle is equiped with power stering that needs to be removed and if equiped with A/C the compressor needs to be removed to get to the sensor. No electronic checks after installation. Where ever you decide to have it serviced make sure you only use a factory part. The after market parts are coming out of China and they don't work properly.
Thank you Jim! I appreciate your help.
