Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.

A common problem is a bad CRANK sensor that causes this, but It wouldn't hurt to attach a scan tool to monitor all the sensors first.

Thanks, Ron

I don't have my database available to me today. but the crank sensor will be on either side of the motor near the crank shaft in the front of the motor. It's a small part the size of about 3 inches or so with a 2 pin connector.
