1999 Hyundai Accent - Stalls

car stalled while driving about 43km, I switched the engine off and restart and it goes again. I can’t drive more than above 90kmbecause it will stall again. What is the problem.

The stalling can be caused by a faulty crankshaft position sensor.

If the computer loses the signal from this sensor, the computer see’s no reason to operate the fuel/ignition systems, and the engine shuts off.

I’m a little bit confused

The car stalled after driving 43 kilometers . . . ?

The car stalled while your speed was 43 kilometers per hour . . . ?

You can’t exceed 90 kilometers per hour, or else it will stall . . . ?

Is . . . or was . . . the check engine light flashing while you were driving the car?
