Engine stalls while driving, but will start right back up again. It will also stall while in idle. It doesn't happen all the time.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check engine light has not come on. It has gotten worse though. I've changed the Fuel pump relay, didn't help. Once it stalls, I turn the ignition off then on, it starts right back up.

Without a check engine light, it becomes a guessing game. If I had to guess, I would start with the crank sensor.

Thanks for the info, you wouldn't happen to know the location of the Crankshaft location Sensor?

It should be near the harmonic balancer mounted on the timing belt cover.

This sounds like it was the crankshaft sensor. Here is a guide to help you step by step and the location of the sensor for your car below.
