Default This is odd.

Okay, lately the SSEi has been stalling like it does it for a job. It stalled once or twice Friday. And it stalled twice yesterday. So, we got an appointment at the shop for Friday. Hopefully, it will stall nine times while they drive it so they can figure out what'* going on. This stalling problem is getting to be stupid, and down right dangerous. I don't like it.

I'm thinking,

Crank sensor

Ignition Control Module

or Computer..

The Crank sensor sticks out in my mind... Good Luck and let us know what happens..

Thanks for the luck, we really need it. I am personally afraid to drive my car. That is how bad the stalling issue has gotten. The body and interior is in great shape, low mileage. The stalling is the only problem we have, if we could fix that I would sell it and feel wonderful about it. Too bad I didn't know this whole problem was going to arise before I bought the car. But at least we will get the chance to fix it before somebody ends up getting seriously injured in an accident because it stalled on them.

I have seen countless 3800'* that have had Crank sensors go bad... It happens to every car with age and or milage... The Crank sensor is a common failure for these engines... But its a possibility that the ICM may be bad and causing issues...

If I was closer to you I would consider the car for myself.. Fixing it wouldn't be a problem..

If you mechanic is a good one he or she should be able to determine the problem.. And if the problem is that frequent then it should happen to them too...

Again, good luck and let us know the outcome..

The car is going into the shop Friday. Hopefully they can figure out whats up so I can get the speakers and CD player taken out of it that night. I had a couple people call wanting to come look at it on the weekend.

I am keeping the CD player and speakers so I can use those for my next car. Don't want to keep spending money on that.

Depending on if the car gets fixed on Friday, I would like at least 3000 for her. She is in great shape and stuff. Are you still looking for a bonnie vital?

Default connector

don't forget also a loose or corroded connector could also cause stalling.
