I bought this car for $5000 and have owned it since 2007.
In the time I've owned it I've had to replace the fuel pump, rack and pinion, PCM (main computer) all the censors, gas cap, the ac has gone out, and now the car is randomly dying while driving it.
I've been told that the PCM has to be replaced again to fix the issue.
This is the most unreliable car I've ever owned!
Did you ever check the spark plugs and coils. I was getting that error and had mine replaced, kept getting the error even after having it replaced and the car randomly dieing. Went and took out all my coils for the plugs and low and behold a spark plug was gone and I looked at the coil and it was busted. Went and replaced it and the spark plug and it fixed everything.
