Problems once again

Hey guys my engine has been shutting off sporadically for the last couple of months since I have had it. So far I have cleaned the IAC and throttle body and replaced the TPS. I had just replaced the TPS last week and it worked fine for a few days but is now back to its old tricks. Can anybody point me in the right direction on this one it is getting very annoying and it is not showing any codes for me to go on. Thanks

Anybody have any suggestions? I checked all of the plugs and they do not need replaced either.

Now it is shutting off while driving down the road and still showing no codes. Any help would be appreciated because it is beginning to become unsafe to drive.

Sounds like crank sensor is going south.I've also had trouble with fuel pump relay in the past,relays are cheap and worth trying first.When it dies again,Take off rail cap and see if you are getting fuel to rail.Looks like a valve stem cap.

Thanks baja the next time it shuts off I will try that. I was thinking it was a crank sensor myself but I was afraid of putting the time and money into replacing it before I got some other suggestions first.

I'd go with the crank sensor also. Takes just about 10-15 minutes to replace. Autozone has them for $34 (auto) or $69 (manual).
