I have the same problem. My car stalls for no apparent reason. Sometimes it happens often (more than once per day, sometimes it may go weeks before a stall. Usually after it stalls if I wait approx. 10-15 mins the car will start right up and I can drive away like it never happened. Help??

Replaced sensor from pep boys but still won't start
ENGINE WOULD CRANK, NOT START. TOWED TO SHOP - DEALER REPLACED SENSOR UNDER EXTENDED WARRANTY.
car will start and run for 5 or 10 minutes and then die. It will restart in 1 or 2 minutes or 15 or 20 minutes. CPS fixed this problem
Engine died while driving on the freeway. Pulled over with no power steering. Was able to restart and drive to dealer. Diagnosis was failed crank position sensor.
