98 Isuzu Hombre, manual, shortbed, 105,000. Recently just started stalling, nothing strange happening at all just stalls. Give it about 10 minutes, starts up, runs for a bit, same thing happens. 3 different mechanics have no clue, no engine computer codes show. Finally the gentleman at Tuffy suggested one of 3 possibilities. Crankshaft and/or Cam sensor, or the vehicle computer. The symptoms I told him suggested to him that it was the Cam Sensor. Just stalls, no warning except RPM and Speedometer needles go crazy then die as vehicle stalls, sits for a bit, restarts. I don't know what else to try.

    Its a second vehicle, but I've had it forever and don't want to give it up, but can't keep putting out $200 here, $300 here on guesses on a fix. Frustrated.

    OK, I've owned a 98 hombre for years, and I've had the same stalling issue for a long time.  Tried the cam and crankshaft sensors as well, the problem kept coming back.  The final fix that solved the issue was the ignition switch inside the steering collumn.  Shortly after that the fuel pump went bad, so change the ignition switch and get a fuel pump pressure test kit and check the pump.  Hope this helps,  my hombre has over 266,000 miles and still going strong.
