I would test to see if the Battery is fine. From the sound of it, it is running low. This could cause the car's computer to fail. Most car's computer can be reset by simply disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes or so.
Not common unless the car has not been maintained. Without regular oil changes, the chain eventually stretches, the sprockets wear, and then the chain may jump a tooth. It is more common with overhead cams, because the chains are much longer and rely on tensioners that wear out.
Dont have a solution but i have a 3.1 and its doing the same thing. we checked fuel press. and its fine but some one told me that its the fuel pump because if you drive on a half a tank of gas or less the fuel pump is not cooling off properly so it shuts eng. off. cause fuel pump is going bad and it will not show any codes if tested. so i am replacing the fuel pump $260 hopefully this will solve the problem but try driving with full tank of gass it should not do it as often but after about 10 min car should start after it dies.
this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery
First of all, what cuts out, the "check engine" light, or the engine itself? If its the ck eng light it sounds like an intermittin problem that in most cases cannot be resolved with a code scanner. Have you disconnected the battery to reset that light? If not, then do so (usually the ground cable) for about 10 min., then re-connect the cable and your ck eng. light will be off. ck eng. lights generally have to be constantly on in order to pull codes from the PCM. If there is a problem then the light will come back on.
