was still holding out that it was a "fluke"
drove the car yesterday, got stranded three times (!). yeah I'm not too bright sometimes.
First time, happened while driving, pulled over, sat 90 sec, started, drove off.
Second time happened at 4 way intersection, pushed the car to nearby parking lot. shopped for awhile, didn't start, went for coffee, came back. started (after about 2h cooldown). drove another 2 miles and stalled at another busy intersection. pushed to the gas station, got towed home (flatbed).
while waiting for the tow truck, got out my code reader, told me CPS was bad. so I went from 99% sure to 100%.
I have ordered the Bosch from autohaus - I have the one clip model which I didn't see in Hella at diyautoparts. I will need to get a torx socket as I can feel I have the external type.
Greg is correct again. Thanks for the previous posts and helpful photos - I went right to it and hopefully will have no problem installing the new one.
Even though it's a $60 part instead of a $10K blown engine, doesn't take away the embarrassment of being stranded in an intersection. People zoom by in clunkers and give you sneers because your German engineering is kaputt.
