Camshaft position sensor - it can come and go, but if the sensor goes, you could be stranded.
Buy the part from the dealer (many dealers have online parts - you can shop around and ket it cheap) and find a mechanic to put it in - DO NOT get a sensor from a parts store, they are either bad out of the box or leave short lives.
Should be a 5-10 minute job to replace.
