Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear June, Unfortunately these kinds of problems can be the hardest to find. Because it's not leaving a code, the technician really needs to have the problem happen so they can test the components at the time. Have you taken this vehicle to the dealership? Because they are trained only on this manufacturer they may be aware of an existing problem. I think with no codes I would check your fuel pump first. Sometimes they can intermittently stop working, which means they're not sending gas to the injectors. Good luck with this problem. I know it can be frustrating. Lori Johnson
