I was going to next start on cleaning the grounds and checking them all. This is the 3100 V6 and it has the crankshaft position sensor right behind the balancer. I am going to clean it up real good while I'm in there. I had the same idea that it maybe losing it's ground since it dies when rolling but not sitting and idling. I really appreciate all the good tips guys. I want to do the best I can to get this old lady's car back going so she can get around again.
I'll make sure to give the wires a tug to see if that shuts it down also, if so I'll know I have some wires to trace down. I also had read the oil on the sensor can cause it to read incorrectly. What puzzles me about the crank position sensor is why doesn't it throw a code? As said I had a car before this do the same thing and it never threw a code, it would just go dead.
Thanks again for the help guys.
