The crankshaft sensor would fit with the symptoms. Often the voltage output from faulty sensors declines with temperature rise so the temperature at which your CKP was checked over is critical. How to check? First check that the electrical connection is clean and secure; dirt or corrosion can impair an otherwise healthy CKP signal from getting through. If the CKP suffers from a drop in voltage associated with heat increase this can only be detectable with a voltmeter or oscilloscope with a graphical display; an analogue display voltmeter might just be able to show needle fluctuations due to voltage variation output. There are two types of CKP:-

2 pin socket (magnetic - sine wave output). One pin is 'ground' the other is 'signal'. A voltmeter set to 2 volts AC (note well) should measure a signal in the 0.2 to 2 volts range on the 'signal' pin.

3 pin socket (Hall effect, magneto - square wave form output). One pin is 'reference' (5volts), one pin is 'ground' and the third pin is 'signal'. A DC voltage (again note well) should be detectable in the 0.5 to 1.5 volt range from the 'signal' pin.

It is important that the voltage measurement take place at start up when the engine is cold and again, 20 minutes later, when the engine has fully warmed up to operating temperature. If there is a marked decline in voltage output between hot and cold, replace the CKP. If all looks well apply this diagnostic to the cam position sensor CMP (it works in exactly the same way)

99 Volvo V70 seems to stall and vaporlock, after running. The car shows an ETS light, which I understand to be the Electronic Throttle Sensor. It has shown this light for over a year, but has not given...

change your fuel filter ..your vehicle will run but your fuel pressure is weak ..also after this clean your fuel injectors by pouring injection cleaner in your gas ,,it will correct itself..Also ,,if none of what I stated works ,,Spark plugs and new spark plug wires needed ,,Lastly your fuel pump

2004 Crossfire just dies (rarely and randomly) when driving or sitting at a light. Check engine light is on; low coolant light is also on... intermittently. Had it checked at a shop; no codes were found...

the coolant light won't cause it to stall more likely to be a crank shaft sensor possibly only way to find out though is to replace it and see what happens sometimes these things don't throw up codes and would need the scan tool to be on the car when it stalls and won't start again the crank sensor cools down then will work again

Car dies while driving

HI. this is a fuel filter issue. would have it replaced asap if possible. you should also, purchase a fuel additive to flush out the fuel injectors and fuel lines as well. Sea foam is a very good fuel system additive.

Due to the fact that this car is a 1999 model, i would change the fuel pump as well. this is good preventive maintenance.

One more thing, if you have not had a full scale tune up recently or, in the last 10,000 miles, i suggest scheduling one soon.
