I blew a headgasket and had that fixed. the valve cover gasket was screwed when they fixed the head gasket and I was pouring oil over the engine for a couple weeks. Well, it's fixed now but the battery died or went bad so I replaced it. Drove it from tennessee to michigan it drove great. Next morning it turned over way too long before starting.
After that I drove it a mile and it was having trouble shifting... it would jerk like the transmission was struggling and the check engine light was on. I pulled over and shut it off. I immediately turned it back on and it ran perfectly. the check engine light was for the crankshaft position sensor. Two errors: One said a malfunction of the sensor, the other said "intermittent".
I drove it back down to tennessee just fine. EVERY time it sits for a few hours, I have to drive it for like a minute and shut it off and turn it back on before it will work perfectly.
I don't know much about these things but is it possible a fuse is blown or a battery is dead that is keeping the CPS's memory of the car? and every time it sits it goes dead and has to relearn by me driving it for a mile?
Please help me...
