Some time my car has trouble starting. It might take me 2-3 times to start. When it does start it runs find. But the check engine light comes on after it has been started.
Do you
have the same problem?

Ok first find a parts store near you like Auto Zone that will do a free scan test and get the code and lets see why the light is on first and go from there. So get back to me with the code and lets go from there.

It took me a while to get a chance to go to auto zone I work a lot of hrs. This is what they got code PO322 and this what is it says. The PCM has determined that there is no voltage signal from the engine speed input. (Crankshaft position sensor, distributor tachomter signal ect.) Two days in a row the car has shut off on me and the battery light has came on both times, so I went to have the battery check it is find. Thanks

Sounds like the crank position sensor needs to be replaced. The battery light comes on because the car died and when it does the alternator isn't spinnig and more.

I found the part for $50 is it something I could just replace or would I need some kind of special tool/equipment?

If you know where the sensor is located then you should be able to replace it no special tools just unplug it remove the bolt that holds it and pull it out put new.
