    Most likely crank sensor.... Pain to even see it, much less change it! Better have some testing done!... Woods Auto Service maybe.

    Anything is possible but you stated pressure is good so I figure that's not your trouble!..... Next time it stalls... Check for ignition spark!! Let me know if you need to know how....

    IF no spark... Suspect crank sensor!
