Car stalling out

I just recently replaced my camshaft positioning sensor last month and then the problem started up again this weekend. Today, i just replaced the radiator on/in my car.
Would that affect the sensor?

Radiator would not have anything to do with vehicle stalling unless it was overheating.
Lots of things can cause stalling.
I recommend taking the vehicle to a shop that does scopemeter testing this way they can pinpoint the cause and stop the guess work with this problem.

Here's what it says Heather,
  • The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown.I would say,go for it.

the crank shaft sensor is more likely to cause a no start . you can replace it your self for a lot less and the sensor is most likely less than $100.00. you would need to give the year , make , model, engine to get instructions.

1391 is the intermittent loss of either the Camshaft Position Sensor or the Crankshaft Position Sensor.

Is your engine running rough, sputtering; or has it recently stalled out? If so then either one of these Sensors could be failing. However if your engine stalled-out or sputtered, this Code will appear. IF there are no other Codes (like a Misfire Code) then the Crankshaft Position Sensor would be the 1st Sensor to replace, then (2nd) the Camshaft Position Sensor.

Helpful TIP: IF you replace either the Sensor MAKE SURE you use approved replacement OEM parts. Some after market Sensors have been found to be faulty and/or will fail.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at!

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure the fuel system is running 100%. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. If it's the fuel pump failure, you have not gotten the car restarted. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again soon and please rate.
