Answers :

It really sounds like a bad crankshaft sensor.The crankshaft sensors are expososed to oil,and some heat,witch sometimes,does them in.It would be good if you could get someone like autozone to put it on there scanner,and see if it confirms the problem.I think it will,if this helps at all,please let us know,thank you.
