Stalling @ idle in gear when engine is in warm up phase. Dealer found intermittent failure of both crankshaft position sensors. 10 years or 29,000 miles(garage queen), whichever comes first. Dealer to replace both sensors.
Engine stalls without PS, PB, etc....17 times during Dec 2014/Jan 2015....happens at various speeds, whether going straight or turning left or right.
Stalls and runs rough. Replaced both crank position sensors. Problem solved until now. Have to replace them again at 230000 miles.
