cutting Out

Hi all,

Have a 98/R 2.0Si Mondeo that keeps cutting out. The lastest being today. O the return leg of a 16mile round trip i noticed the car hesitate quite noticably. When i pulled up to drive into my garage the car cut out and didn't want to restart, eventually got it restarted but it cut out again, again after a period of time trying, it restarted running absolutely fine, finished pulling into the garage and lo and behold it died tried to restart it but gave up, as i had two screaming kids in the car!
Thing is, i spoke to the guy who used to own it and he said he had similiar probs and that upon taking it to our local garage and it being put on an error reader, was told the Crankshaft sensor was at fault. Now as it turns out he has had this replaced three times in a year. Is this likely to be my problem and if so what is causing the sensor to fail so often. The other quick qestion is , is a MK1 sensor the same as a Mark 2 , as i have a spare one from my wifes MK1?

MAny Thanks

frown Re: cutting Out

Hi,

Ok i'm getting frustrated by this now! Swapped the Crankshaft sensor and car fired up fine. Drove about 7 mikes to pick son up from a party, went to come home and it wouldn't start, 5 mins of trying eventually worked. Drove home cautiously keeping revs up and trying not to stop. Pulled up into the garage and idle dropped off to 500 and then picked up again, didn't stall!. went back out to start it 3 hrs later and it won't fire up at all. Any Ideas???

Cheers
