Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today. In some cases, I may need more info to assist better. I apologize for any delay.
I try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

One common component that causes a stall out like your seeing here that is not listed above is the crank position sensor itself. It is located next to the ignition module. In some cases, you can remove it and if it is cracked you know it needs to be replaced but in other cases, it will appear o.k.I have had to replace this sensor several times before for a fault like this here. This was one of the most common components to fail.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above). You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question. I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks, Pete

I apologize as I am unable to place a call on this here myself.Others here will see you have requested a call and may still call on this.But I can continue here.

Does it act like it is bogging down with a lack of power with this issue?
