About two monthes agoMy vehicle began ideling eractically at a redlight,drive thru window or stopped for a train crossing..I saw the idle changing so I put in park and reved it to keep her alive.However,the car died right in traffic.i had a few guys push the car into a lot.I sat there for 10 minutes pondering my next move ,I turned the key and and it fired right up as if nothing happened.This occured two times only when the vehicle was in stopped but engaged in drive. !Two days ago I started the car and drove it for 10 minutes when I noticed that after 45 mph the vehicle was sluggish and hestating.I let the car sit for an hour.I jumped back in and it started and once in drive,it immediately died.Id start/engage in drive /and it died. .Then it would drive perfect for a mile or so and repeatly die.I managed to get it home....Ive changed the fuelfilter and and recieving proper fuel pressure.I recently had a someone scan with the MAC tool.The reference was pointing towards the ignition module.The rpms were eractic(up and dowm)and then the car would just die. It would die before getting the code.Ive narrowed it down to either an ingition module or the crank sensor hoping you may be able to give me your opinion ?
