97 sebring convertible just shuts off randomly while

Customer Question
97 sebring convertible just...

97 sebring convertible just shuts off randomly while driving. usually starts back up immediately, but now it's starting to get worse, took 7 times to get it started today while in the middle of a busy intersection.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Not battery related, yes lights work fiune.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Convertible yourself? What have you tried so far?

Actually I think it's the Crankshaft position sensor, from what I've looked up online, but having trouble getting to it to replace it. Yes,doing it myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Thjat' That's all I can think of right now

What Customers are Saying:

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.
