camshaft error -- engines dies -- doesn't restart for about 30 minutes
The problem I am having is this -- when driving the engine dies, then it won't restart and it doesn't get a 'wait to start engine' light until it sits about 30 - 45 minutes, then the light comes on and I can re-start it. It seems to help if I start it and let it idle for about 20 minutes before taking off. I replaced the camshaft sensor 3 times now in the past 6 months. The first 2 I got from NAPA, today I got one from Ford. Started it, idled for about 5 minutes, drove about 5 miles and it died. It took me about an hour and a half to get home, stalling 2 times and waiting about 15 - 30 minutes to restart each time. I read another thread that sounded similar and his solution was to replace the Injector Pressure Regulator. About 200 miles back I replaced the fuel filter.
Thanks for your help!
