Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

The behavior is actually typical for a defective crankshaft sensor.

The sensor is usually located in the area of the gearbox, as it reduces the speed of the flywheel. In some engines it also points to the crankshaft pulley.

This expands when the engine gets warm and contracts again when the engine cools down.

Over time a loose contact can occur. As soon as the sensor is too warm it can come to a failure. The car starts up again when the engine has cooled down a little.

I would suspect the error there most likely.

I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
