Last year car started stalling at red lights or in slow freeway traffic. Then I went 7 months without a problem. Last Saturday, traveling at 70 mph on the freeway, I lost speed on the freeway and as I drifted to the shoulder, lost the power steering. Turned out the cam shaft sensor failed causing 3 catalitic converters to melt. Big bucks later all has been replaced.

Cam sensor went out while driving at highway speeds and engine immediately stopped. Was able to restart but unable to keep vehicle moving at any speed over 20mph. Cam sensor had to be replaced.

Had the same issue vehicle stalled engine light came on checked it at work read camshaft position sensor. I replaced it the same day. Did it again a week later so I shut the light off. Two weeks after that the light came back on after stalling on the freeway way. I'm now wondering if there is an issue with the cam itself
The sensor keeps going bad causing the vehicle to stall instantly. It will usually start back up and run fine for a while but it will stall again until I replace the sensor. New sensors only last a few months before the problem starts again. Really frustrating because it's not like the sensors are real cheap.
