what about a camshaft or crankshaft sensor? a buddy thinks that might be an issue?
Expert:  JacobTD replied 5 years ago.
If that was the case there would be a check engine light. Take it to your local autoparts store and they shoudl scan computer for free. If a sensor was at fault it would have a related trouble code.
If you havent change fuel filter in awile, start here. Its really common.
