Having problems with your 2001 Mazda MX-5 Miata ?
About a year ago I took my '01 Miata into the dealer for a stalling problem. The car would lose power and die in traffic and the check engine light would come on. After about five minutes it could be restarted and driven home. The dealer had the car for six weeks and he replaced the crankshaft sensor. First time I took the car out it stalled again. The problem occurs on really hot days or when climbing the a really steep grade.
The most likely problem is the cam sensor in you valve cover. we see this all the time here in Florida. once the sensor heats up it fails and starts working again when it cools off. try replacing it with on from the dealer and you should have no more problems.
