My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

On most models the engine is equipped with a crank position sensor/engine rpm sensor.If this sensor is acting up this can cause the fault you have here and would need replaced and can be common.If the fuel pressure is dropping off this can be an issue with a weak fuel pump/injection pump causing this needing replaced.

If the vehicle does not start right back up use a scan tool plugged into your vehicle to monitor the engine rpm signal to see if when cranking over the engine if there is an rpm signal.If no rpm signal is present this can indicate a faulty crank sensor needing replaced.I would also have the fuel pressure tested to see if you have a weak or failing pump needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
