Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to
assist you with your question.

Are there any warning lights coming on?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


No there is no warning lights on

Expert:  mike_a_mechanic replied 3 years ago.
Ok there is common issue with these vehicles that causes this problem to happen. The issue is consistent with a failing crankshaft position sensor. The sensor needs to be ohm tested and likely changed.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


The crank sensor has been done sorry I forgot about it,and the timing

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


I have changed the crank sensor

Expert:  mike_a_mechanic replied 3 years ago.
Ok since the crank sensor has been done and from what you have already done to the vehicle this is starting to sound like the ECU itself that may be causing this problem. The communication from the ECU might be getting broken, I would suggest as a next step to have the ECU tested.
