Normally it will happen after I have been driving it for a while. For example, if I am on the highway, after about 30 minutes it will shut off on me. I can wait about 20 minutes or so and it will start back up.
I just had the front struts replaced, they were original and was told at inspection they needed to be replaced. About a week after the repair, the car started making a creaking noise when you turned the wheel. I took it back to the repair place and was told the cushions for the struts were worn out. I had them both replaced on the front end. The mechanic took it for a test drive and said everything was fine. The car is now making a creaking notice when you accelerate and when stop. It almost sounds like the wheels are rubbing. Could you tell me what it could possibly be ?

The battery was completely disconnected for 3 weeks timing is spot on, have fuel and spark. Does the ECU need to be reset or flashed? Why wont it start?

I have had to replace the crankshaft position sensor on my 2006 kia optima two times in the last 3 months. The mechanic said it was just a bad sensor, but after two new sensors there must be something else going on. What would cause this problem?
