When the car is in parking position or while moving, the engine will suddently cut off at times. After restart, the car will move normally until it happens again. Another proplem is that I have turn the key at ignition a few times to start but at times, once is enough. Thanks

If this happens when the engine is warm or at operating temperature, I would think the Crankshaft Position Sensor is to blame. These fail often and usually when the vehicle is hot/warm. When the vehicle is cold, the car performs as normal. If this happens both warm and cold, it may also be a failing fuel pump. From past experience, I would think its most likelya crankshaft sensor.
