Car cranks won't start first time usually starts after second crank. Now it's getting worse it threw two O2 sensor codes today I pulled the negative cleared the codes in hopes they would come back and I can't pull a code again.
Some symptoms cranks no start then eventually cranks over.

Stalls at light sometimes

Running rough

I thought crank sensor now I'm wondering about o2 sensor even though it's not throwing codes now. How can I check each sensor w a multimeter all 4 sensors to see if there working.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check fuel pressure with a gauge and check for a vacuum leak like broken or hoses off. Auto parts rent gauge

No if it is not there where specified then you will need an adapter

No you need an adapter for the fuel line to attach a gauge or a pro can do it with a scanner with no adapter.

HMAC 300 after all this and still not finding the issue radiator sprung a leak brought an after market online and it came w 2 threaded fittings for the trans cooler lines however mine are connected to the air condition cooler radiator. Will it be difficult to find caps for this and have you ever experienced this.

If you don't hook up any lines to the ones on radiator nothing will go in or out. You'll have to find out if the connections are metric or us then you may find a plug at hardware store if you want to plug the h oles, but normally only trans fluid goes through there and if you aren't using it don't worry about it.
