Does it ever flash? Do you know what diagnostic codes you are getting? Thanks

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it never flashes, and this happened a few days ago for the first time, 3 times the same night, moved the car yesterday and havent had a problem, but im afraid that it will happen again and maybe when im far away the city
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

It sounds like maybe a problem with the camshaft position sensor which can cause these symptoms. Lets start by checking diagnostic codes which you can have done at your local parts store for free. Let me know, thanks.
