While im driving down the road the engine will die

Sometimes it wont happen for days.then sometimes it will happen a few times a day.and most of the time when i turn my heater on it does it also.once it dies i have to pull over and wait a few minutes then it will crank up and go just fine.Also sometimes when you get in it to crank it up it wont even turn over so you have to wait 5 minutes then itll fire up

    same thing is happening to mine. You can hear the fuel pump when ignition is on, but no spark just keep cranking with no ignition.
    -checked the fuel pump, OK
    -checked the fuel pump relay, OK
    -checked the ECM, OK
    -checked for spark, NO SPARK
    It has 3 coils, is it possible for 3 coils to quit at once. I doubt it!
    -I haven't checked the crank position sensor yet but can you?

It sounds like an ignition switch going bad.

Check the crankshaft position sensor. Old oil (infrequently changed) can foul them up. The sensor has to "see" certain points on the crankshaft. Dirty or bad oil can prevent the "seeing" from occuring. You can turn the key all you want, it will crank but never start. Sometimes, when the sludge settles, it will run again. If this solves your problem, you seriously need an engine flush and then frequently change your oil. Clean oil is more importaint than most people realize. hope this helps.

Have fuel pressure tested when it happens if you can, or take it to shop, let it run on a hot day, then check it. May be a fuel pump on it's way out.

Engine dies unexpectedly sometimes while driving


hi,i read your problem,for my opinion,maybe camshaft or crankshaft are the possible causes,to make sure, you have to bring the unit to authorized workshop to avoid guessing which part are defective
