    rec. fuel system clean. ethanol treatment to 1 tank of premium. ethanol treatment causes build up in fuel system, combustion chambers, exhaust system and causes increased wear to spark plugs. build up can trip the sensors.

    Did you try the crankshaft position sensor?
    It sure does sound like it.
