    JUST FIXED ONE (2.5L) THIS ONE WAS THE CRANK POSITION SENSOR CONNECTOR! CRANKED FINE COLD, RUN FOR 10 MIN.
    CUT IT OFF AND WAIT SAY 3 MIN. THEN NO START UNTIL COOL DOWN, POOR CONNECTION, NOT THE SENSOR. HEAT DOES FUNNY THINGS TO ELECTRONICS.
    NOW THAT WAS THE TROUBLE WITH THIS ONE, YOURS MAY BE ANOTHER PROBLEM. I FOUND IT WITH A SCANNER, A GOOD SCANNER!
    GET YOUR MECHAINC TO CHECK IT OUT FOR YOU. TOUGH TO GET AT SENSOR!! (2.5L) (2.5L) !!! ALWAYS GIVE AS MUCH INFO. AS YOU CAN.
