This problem is driving me crazy.

I've got a 96 Deville.

And after the car has had a little time to warm up...when you come to a stop light...it will cut off.

It starts right back up though.

Took it to the shop. They said it was a bad idle speed control.

They replaced it.

I get the car back...

And one day later..it's back to doing it again.

Took it back to the shop and left it over night.

The mechanic which by the way is my regular mechanic and I've been going to him for the past 10 years....

I don't think he would try to screw me..

He said he could not get the car to cut off.

I take the car back home.

It does it again.

I take it back to the shop.

I leave it for 2 day's and he calls me to say that he drove the car several times in the morning...and in the evening..and he couldn't get it to cut off.

Now let me say this.

Both me and my brother both use the car and it cuts off on the both of us repeatedly.

Has anybody had his problem?

Pretty sure its the Crankshaft Position Sensor(s). This is an EXTREMELY common problem on the 2000 and up Northstars but very RARE on the pre-2000 models. Still, Im pretty sure weve had it happen to the older cars here on more than one occasion.

Those are the exact symptoms of the CKP issue... it will just cut off out of no where and start right back up.

I forgot to put this in my reply.

If it is the crankshaft sensor.

Does anyone have an idea about how much it costs to have the crankshaft sensor replaced?

Just a ball park figure will do.

Thanks
