The car stalls out at 147 degrees and does not turn over until it is cool enough. I have had two garages looking at it and there are no codes that show up. They can not figure out what to do. I have over $800.00 invested into the electrical and engine tune up. Need help. I do not want to put anymore money in it if they cannot figure things out. I had the ECU changed to.
Do you

Check fuel pressure when this happens it may be the pump is going bad if you can check amp draw as well. that is a good indication with no codes of a pump bad. See link.

It is not the fuel pump. Could it be the crank shaft sensor?

Yes they can fail and not set a code although it starts if you get it out see if there is a lot of sludge on it if there is clean it off and see what happens. Or replace it.

I kind of doubt the cooant sensor but here is achart to check it. You'll need an ohm meter. Also one thing I forgot you can do a wiggle test on crank sensor and that is when it quits running wiggle harness by it and if it starts the harness may be bad and in need of replacement.

When I accelerate from the start the car sputters and jerks. What could that be?

Unless you scan for codes and check fuel pressure as well as for vacuum leaks then get back with codes if any then we are not much help as those are the basic things needed to do in order for us to give a proper diagnosis instead of the fuel pump was replaced as an answer.
