My car has been stalling intermittently while I am driving it and then I put it in park and it starts right back up and it goes for a while and then the same thing happens. What is wrong?

Do you
have the same problem?

I have taken it to my mechanic twice now and he thinks he has fixed it but it keeps happening. He did a diagnostics on it yesterday and it gave the code throttle sensor, so he replaced it, ran another diagnostic and the code was cleared. When I was going to work this morning, the check engine light came back on and the car stalled twice on the way to work. I am very frustrated because it is my only vehicle and I need it to get to work every day. Please help!

You will need to have the pressure checked on the fuel pump with a gauge to see if it is working right. Also find out why the check engine light came back on.

Do you think it could be the crank sensor?

Crank sensor can intermittently fail without codes set.
