Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer.I will try my best to help you with your question.
Before you replace or try to repair this, see if you can get any trouble codes from the PCM (Engine Computer). Any auto parts store will do this for free. Just have them get the codes, do not let them sell you any parts. Get the codes and post them on this page. The trouble codes will narrow down the cause of what happened and the cause itself.
