Well, I am not really ruling anything out. It failed only once, and not enough data. But it is not like rough idle or surging, it is a complete shut down, which can happen in a bad neighborhood. I have not yet to replace a CPS. I have one spare, but not for installation at the road-side. I happen to carry a bottle of water in the trunk, Carefully and slowly pouring over the CPS may cool it down enough to restart the car with minimum downtime, if such a fault comes up.
