I have the vehicle listed above that unexpectedly stalls but will restart. There is no check engine code. I have had the valves adjusted, cleaned the throttle body, replaced the IACV, replaced the vtec solenoid valve timing oil pressure switch (screen was fouled), checked for leaking vacuum lines. Stalling still occurs? What do I do next?

Thank you

The most likely reason for this is a loss of ignition for it to cut off and then restart. However, when it stalls, does it cut off all power to the cluster or does it sputter to a stop?

Maybe a video of this stalling would help a lot with possible causes.

However, the most likely cause is a crank sensor failure. It doesn't match just because your vehicle restarts right away but that is not a requirement.

Here is a guide that talks about this:

Here is another guide that will help with this issue in more general terms:

Please run through this material and let us know what you find with this. However, if there are no codes and based on everything you have done, I would suggest replacing the crank sensor and retest.

Below is the process from the manual on how to do this. Let me know if you have questions on this. Thanks
