my aurora sputteres n stalls when it rains and i think the ignition module sensor sounds like a likely suspect i been racking my brain trying ta figure out where the car was sucking water it runs like a top when its nice out
My car was stalling while being driven. Also, it became very difficult to start. Both crankshaft sensors ended up being bad. I have the 4.0 V8 engine and this problem is common on this engine.
My car starts tapping when sitting at idle and started smoking .
Car does not stall but it has a tough time starting when it it slightly warm. I'm going to replace sensor. It all started after getting my cars intake gaskets fixed
Stall at idle, replaced both crankshaft sensors. The car runs normally and I still love it. It is the only car that I have had that I like this much; I will not trade it.

It would turn off while driving. I went to a mechanic, and he said he fixed it. I don't know if he did. I sold it.
Pressing gas and engine sputters and take off?I think it's the pressure sensor.
