    96 Deville 4.6L dies sporadically only at idle

    Car has good idle, no codes set in PCM, but it will die sporadically only during idle. I could be driving the car and stop at a stop sign and then it will die, it will fire back up with no hesitation. I can also let it sit and run and it will eventually just shut off. Doesn't act like it is running out of gas and it starts right back up. I have tried the PCM, ignition module and the crank sensor. If anyone out there has any ideas, please let me know!!!

    I'll second that. Also pull the DTC's. Post them AND their definitions.

    Ok, the PCM was not setting any DTC's. I cleaned the IAC and the EGR, same problem. Did a little more research and found that there was a second Crank Sensor (which I originally thought it was the problem), swapped that one out and it has been good ever since, I think I may have solved the problem. Thanks for all your help!!!
