When driving car will die then it will start back up. And ride rough
The car will stall while driving. It will also just about die out, then start back up.
Stalling @ idle in gear when engine is in warm up phase. Dealer found intermittent failure of both crankshaft position sensors. 10 years or 29,000 miles(garage queen), whichever comes first. Dealer to replace both sensors.
While driving, my car steering wheel and brakes tightened up to the point where it was a struggle to hit the brakes or turn my wheel. The battery light came on and the car died out. Had anyone ever heard of this behavior?
Engine stalls without warning...no PS, PB, etc....17 times during Dec 2014/Jan 2015....happens at various speeds, whether going straight or turning left or right.
Stalls and runs rough. Replaced both crank position sensors. Problem solved until now. Have to replace them again at 230000 miles.
