Hi, thanks for writing in. This can be caused by the fuel pump or a crankshaft sensor. Have the computer system and fuel pressure tested to see if there is codes to diagnose. You may have to have the system checked when the problem has occurred to see if it lost spark or fuel pressure. If you would like help, consider having an expert automotive technician from YourMechanic come to your home or office to inspect and diagnose this issue for you, and make or suggest any repairs as needed.
