While driving my car, it shuts off. There are no warning signs. Initially Pepboys because it was close by and they said it was the battery.I paid $195 for that and oil change, etc. A week later it cut off again. I took it Dodge and they were unable to duplicate the problem. There is no check engine light. I took my brother's mechanic. He has replace the radiator fans, alternator and hoses. Which was a total of approx. 1, 200. Just yesterday it stopped while traveling on 295 N. No one is able to assist me yet, I am spending more money for an ongoing problem. Now I am without a car. The mechanic says the problem could be crankshaft or cam sensor which will be $180. HELP!

Actually, the crank sensor sounds more logical than any of the other items replaced. When the engine dies, does it start right back up for you?

It does sound like a crank sensor. Has the check engine light come on? During the few minutes it doesn't restart, have you ever checked to see if the engine is getting spark?
