Hello, Welcome to Just Answer.
This behavior is usually caused by the crank sensor that over heated and is now giving a weak signal to the ECM. (Engine Control Module) This will not cause a fault code as the ECM is still receiving the signal but it is too weak for the ECM to receive a proper reading. I would suggest replacing the crank shaft sensor.
Yes if you have a VAC-COM scanner tool you can test the signal strenth
