Car stalls while driving and will stall if left to sit to long tried thermostat, due to temp light coming on when it stalls no luck any help is appreciated my next step was going to be the crank position sensor as I have heard could be the problem.

Those did have problems with the crank sensors. Does it restart or do you have to wait a while?

3.8l? Crank position sensor is to the right of the harmonic balancer as you look at the front of the engine. You will need to remove the balancer to replace it

You better try a different parts store. There is definately a crank sensor. Look down at the harmonic balancer you will see the sensor behind and to the right of it.
