Hi Everyone,

I have a 1990 MPV, 3.0L V-6 4WD with 145,000 miles on it. I recently have had a problem with the car dying while I am driving it. It happens after I have driven for a while, and after about 15 minutes it starts and drives again. The fuel pressure is good and there is good spark. I saw some info about a crank position sensor(CPS) causing this problem on other vehicles and thought that might be it. I have a Haynes manual that appears to say only 1992 and later MPV's have a CPS. Does anyone know if this is true? If no CPS on my car, can anyone give me some other ideas to check since this is a dangerous situation(it died in rush hour traffic doing 40 mph on Friday) and I need the vehicle for work. Thanks in advance for any advice, it would be much appreciated.

Do you
