This just started a couple days ago. Drove it all day yesterday and nothing happened. Then last night it did it a couple times. This morning drove it and nothing. Then it happened comming out of a red light uphill, but then drove the rest of the afternoon and nothing.

Throttle position sensor.

Crankshaft position sensor

Knock sensor

Manifold absolute pressure sensor.

EGR Valve
