How long do you have to wait before the car will restart ? If the car sits for 30 minutes to an hour and restarts it sounds like a defective crank sensor , I did not see in your story that you replaced the crank sensor , I would replace it and see if the car still does . The crank sensor is the number one culprit, let me know if this helps , Lou P.
