Please give me some input on to what might be the cause for this problem. My car stalls out after around 15mins or so of driving and will not start [i: d21b8c5785]unless[/i: d21b8c5785] I take the key out of the ignition and re-isert it again to crank ignition. After I start it up again, it'll stall out almost immediately while driving less than a quarter mile down the road. I have to repeat the procedure over and over again until I eventually make it back home. The mechanic at the dealer told me it was my computer so I went and got a new PCM and changed it out. It didn't solve the problem. That was a $250 part! Not only that, it was $240 in diagnosis labor charge! Now, $490 later, I'm back to square one! I really don't have the money for this trial and error baloney. If thats all I got, then why should I pay someone to do what I can do already? I'm a good a guesser as any and cheaper too! If anyone can shoot me in the right direction or have experienced this type of problem, please give me some input. Thanks a bunch for any replies on this thread.
