Q: Q: Car breaks down

asked by on

The car broke down first time on the highway, it lagged once heavily then ran smoothly and broke down 20 min later. After different people with different opinions i have now changed spark plugs, ignition coil, fuel pump and camshaft sensor. I had a friend run diagnostic on the car and he got error code for cam shaft sensor, when i changed that the car started and i drove it roughly 5-6km and it broke down the exact same way again. Latest update was yesterday, i started the car without issues and had the engine idle for 15 mins while revving it every now and then and it didnt break down. Any ideas what the issue could be? Beacause i have no clue

My car has 95000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
