Hello,

So, what is it doing currently?
Does it just crank and not start?

Typically, shutdown during driving points to a faulty crank position sensor. When the crank sensor malfunctions it will send error messages to the ECM and that will trigger an engine shut down. After the stall you may or may not be able to start the engine. The crank sensor is located on the right-hand side of the engine, below the coil packs. The crank sensor does require to be programmed when replaced.

Is your check ending light illuminated? If so, retrieving the codes can help with the diagnostics.

Thank you.

I kept losing water little by little not bad. An if I was driving 30 to 45 miles an hour it would start to run a little hot never over heated. As soon as you got moving a bit faster 50 miles hour or so it would drop back to a normal temperature. I changed water pump clutch fan and thermostat. Didn't change nothing, so I just kept a check on the radiator an added coolant or water. The as I was driving it died on me but started back up, so I continued on my way. After another 15 miles it shut off again this time it had a hard time cranking but I pumped the pedal as I was trying to crank it and it started again so I tried to get to my destination and it died just a few miles down the road and hasn't cranked since. It turns over but want start.
