Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.


From what you are describing this issue is consistent with a failing or failed crankshaft position sensor, which will fail without warning and result in these symptoms. The sensor will need to be OHM tested and likely replaced.
