brownjeff :

What your describing is a failing cam sensor or crank sensor. They more often than not will not leave a code so it is hard to diagnosis unless you happen to have test equipment on the vehicle at the time it stalls. More often than not it is the crank sensor that fails but either one can cause the problem your describing. With the vehicle starting back wont be able to diagnosis as the vechicle would have to stall and not start to know for sure what the cause is

Customer:

how would the mechanic know if this is the problem ?

Customer:

what will show this is the problem

brownjeff :

Would either have to quit and not start or have test equipment hooked to the car when acting up. Other wise the vehicle will check good when testing it. At this point with it being intermittent you will either have to wait for it to fail and not start or take a guess and replace a sensor

Customer:

the test equipment won't be on the car , so they just replace both items and take a shot ? it's now become a daily event. how expensive are theses sensors ?

Customer:

can someone answer the question ?

brownjeff :

Around $60.00 each on the sensors. Normally it is the crank sensor that causes the problem, but either one will do what your describing

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
