Ive had car stall on me on 3 different occasions few days apart, 2 times started right back up ,1 time took 20 minutes or so.Car gives no warning, battery reads 12.8v when car stalls ,no SES light I am assuming crankshaft sensor, The only other thing I found in a search was fuse 19 and it seems ok.

Assuming the car runs fine when it is running and just dies for no apparent reason it could be the sensor?
If its a slow death it could be the fuel system?
When was the last complete tune up?

Next time it dies, check to see if you are getting spark. If not, my first suspect would be the crank sensor. Another possibility, though just a bit less likely is the ignition control module, under the coils.

That'* exactly what mine did with a bad crank sensor.... Buy it at the dealership. I bought a couple bad replacements at different cheap auto parts stores. And then I found out that the dealer had the good one for only $5 more!
