The car originally stalled on us while we were driving. So I took it to my garage and started working on it saw that there was a code for p 1391 so I changed both sensors that did not fix the problem. The car started missing and said that there was a timing issue so we change the timing belt and put a whole new kit on. That did not fix the problem so we moved on to the computer replaced computer had dealership flash it. That did not fix the problem did a tune-up even put on a new coil pack that did not fix the problem. Car is a little hard to start but will run fine up until the point where it warms up.

Although the O2 sensors can cause intermittent starting problems, one of the most overlooked components that can trigger this OBD-II error codes and cause the issues you’re describing is a camshaft position sensor, or the electrical harness attached to the O2 sensors. If these items were not replaced during the dealership service; it’s possible that this is the source of your problem. However, it’s always best to have a professional mobile mechanic complete a car is hard to start inspection; so they can pinpoint the source of this problem first before parts are ordered or replaced.
