En route to my mechanic, driving slowly and gently, the car would not stall. The mechanic road tested the car, and he made it stall.
Initially, error codes P0300, P0463, P1096, P0103 and P0128 were read, but they were too disassociated to be of any use. The older battery was replaced and the cables serviced to ensure good positive and ground connections. The ECM was reprogrammed (cost: $100!), And the Regal ran well for a day. Shortly thereafter, it began dying as before, and was returned to the shop.
Mechanic Bob kept the Regal in his shop for four days, engine idling with test equipment attached. When it died, it started up immediately, and no error codes are present. He is at a loss.
He replaced the crankshaft sensor (at my urging), and it looked like the problem was solved. Not so! It only took a few miles for the problem to happen again.
The odometer light has not worked for several weeks, but I doubt if this is connected.
Anyone have any idea as to what might cause this?
have the same problem?
