Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question
when it acts up does the theft light in the dash blink rapidly with the key in the on position?
i have not noticed that
it will crank and not start for a few minutes correct
does the check engine light com on on the dash with the key on when it acts up and does the check engine light go out when cranking?
if the light does not come on you have a power or ground problem to the computer
if the light does not go out when cranking then the crank position sensor is bad
it has come on at times and it says miss fire i have replaced that sensoras well
and also the o2 sensors
what is the code?
or the missfire code?
there is no coad at this time thay where cleard when thay replaced the o2s
I have seen many times a faulty coil on plug back feed to the computer and cause this concern. Need the missfire code to determine which cylinder it is
this may sound funny but there is a fuse panel on the passenger side kick panel when it would not start i got on the passenger side slaped on the fuse panel wile turning it over and it started . but to answer your other question it was cyl 1
i drive it when engine is cold for 1 or 2 miles then it stops no fire then try for minute or so it cranks back drive one third mile does it again the more or loger i drive it the worse it gets
did you replace cyl #1 coil on plug?
but would that make it not start
by you slapping the fuse panel you could have a bad fuel pump relay or a bad computer relay
have you replaced those yet?
all of them
also I believe the relays are part of the circuit board of the fuse box have you replaced the fuse box yet?
if you are slapping the fuse box and it starts I would have the fuse box replaced
ok thank you
