what engine do you have?
3.8 liter v 6
did it do this before you replaced the crank sensor and ignition module?
is this why?
yes it died before replacing crank and ignition control module. two weeks before we replaced MAP sensor
when it dies....how long befor it will restart?
doesit dies as if you turn off the key?
or,does it stutter first?
starts right up. will die when driving a mile or so
i mean....how does it die...does it just die,,or stutter first?
sorry, it just dies.
and it will start right back?
after it restarts how long will it run?
does the engine light stay on?
no, it doesn't even come on
does the car run well when it is running?
does it ever die when the engune is cold?
or only when warm?
seems to run longer when cold
to me.it sounds like..i think you may need to replace the crank sensor again
it is possible to get a bad new one
yours should be under warrenty
exchange it,,and give it a try
from the way you explain,,,this is what it sounds like the problem is
could this be a fuel pump problem at all?
but,,it isnt likley,,sense it starts right back
give me just a second...i want to check something
i am still back at the crank sensor
though,,when it dies,you may want to listen for the fuelpump to come on
it should run for a couple of seconds when the key is first turned on
i would think it is,,sense it does crank
sounds like a bad crank sensor
sense it does start right back
ok, I will give this a try. my mechanic was stumped.
fact is,,the problem may need to get worse before you find it,,sense it dont give a trouble code
but,do try another crank sensor
