Summary of Complaint

Please fix your auto fill --- it just erased everything! Anyway, the engine cuts out while driving in traffic. The engine cuts out while waiting at a red light. The engine cuts out while turning. It's ALL random! The engine code shows P0340, Bank 1 and Bank2, and sometimes P0345. I have replaced the camshaft position sensors FIVE times!!!!! I have tried both Auto Zone and Hitachi, and neither of them solves the problem. I also paid to have the crankshaft sensor below replaced, and that didn't help. I am told that this problem has been posted online and it was recommended to only use OEM parts. This is very dangerous to lose power while in traffic, and then having to wait until the engine will restart, which eventually it does. This is an ongoing problem. PLEASE help!!!

I AM REQUIRED TO CHANGE MY OIL EVERY 3000 MILES BECAUSE IT BURNS A LOT OF OIL. I FILL UP THE ENGINE 5 QUARTS WHICH IS ABOVE RECOMMENDED BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO RISK RUNNING MY ENGINE DRY OF OIL BECAUSE IT GETS BURNED.
