Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. Though this can be caused by a number of reasons the most common is a failed crank sensor or a bad fuel pump. I have changed many of both of these on this vehicle. Did you plan on fixing this yourself? If you do, do you have a computer scan tool?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have an OBDII reader. If it was the fuel pump would it have sputter cause this was a smooth power loss
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This sensor seems like a pain to get to. I cant even see it here is a picture. Also on the fuel pump you need to drop the tank?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Also the alternator light seek service comes on about once a month or so then restart it and goies away. What could this be
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 1 year ago.

Yes. A fuel pump can cause these same symptoms. As for the charge light, this can be a bad connection at the battery or it may be caused by a failing alternator.
