Strange issue with Car dying

This is really random and I thought I would post to see if this has happened to anyone else. For the last few months my car may shudder at idle and then it will die completely. Then, when I try and start it again, it turns over but will never start. I turn it all the way off and wait for about 10 seconds and then try and start it again and poof, it starts, run fine. This will happen again at another completely random time and is NOT replicatable. It may happen the next day or 3 weeks from now. Sometimes after it dies I can get it to start, but the dash gauges act like the car is not on and don't give any reading. What I have inspected/tried:
Replaced Spark Plugs
Checked Air filters for blockage
checked plug wires
Added 2 separate fuel cleaners
Checked vacuum hoses
Checked if there were any error codes (None)

Any help would be appreciated!

Could be crank sensor. Does the tach move when trying to restart?


Best practices for requesting help:If you haven't done so fill in your vehicle info and profile page. At upper right corner under the search box click on user cp (it's your control panel)
This info will show up to the left under your user name and is very helpful.
BE SURE TO ADD YOUR LOCATION SO WE KNOW WHAT MARKET YOU ARE IN.


  • Be sure you are in the correct forum for your vehicle.
  • Do a search for your problem. A lot of stuff has been asked and answered.
  • Do not double post for the same problem.
  • Give the model year....Engine size...transmission type (auto or standard)
  • Take a single issue at a time. Posting multiple issues at once will get convoluted very quickly
  • VIN number can be very helpful
  • Vehicle history can be good. How many miles. If not bought new, how many have you put on it.
  • Describe the problem best you can. If a noise can you get a sound or video file
  • Tell us what has been done, if anything, thus far. If tests have been performed give actual results not OK or passed. If scanned for codes the actual code(s) not O2 sensor or MAF, Etc.
  • If the vehicle has been to a repair facility it would be nice if you could post a picture of that invoice/bill
  • If your vehicle is under warranty you should have the dealer check it out. If it's a problem they see many times they will generate a safety recall of TSB. This is how they know of the problem.

This information can save a lot of time and get you the answers you need much faster.


Thanks,
Welcome aboard.

The Tach will move when I get it started yes but those random times I get it started and the dash doesn't seem to work, No the tach wont move at all but the speedo will read and the engine acts really funny. Once I stop and turn the car all the way off and restart though....All normal.

Sounds like you either have a bad crank sensor or it's wiring. Check the wiring to the sensor for any fraying.

How do I tell if its bad? I removed it to take a look but I don't see fraying of the wires or anything. Is it just one of those things you just replace and test? I am not getting any error codes. FYI the grime on the end is probably from around the outside when removing it I think.

We use a scope to check its signal. If good we will check the input for the PCM and if it's still good there we move on.

So if I have no scope to check it would it just be good to replace and then see how it goes?

It's a good part to throw at the problem.
