Ok folks I changed out the crank sensor and it was no help. However I did notice that this problem seems to happen just after I get gas, (and no I do not over fill the tank). The problem does seem to lessen after a few miles. Before I go out and buy a cam sensor are there any other suggestions related to fuel? BTW on the 5.7 the starter must be removed to replace the cam sensor. Not recommended when the engine is hot. Still an easy job though.
Actually the crank sensor is behind the starter... the cam sensor is just below the throttle body on the passenger side of the car held in by one bolt
Both are pretty simple... just to change the crank sensor you have to pull the starters couple of bolts and slide it out of the way... it takes five mins more than the cam sensor... but it is in a more awkward spot.
You could try a new gas cap... no clue why it can cause an issue but I had a VW that threw codes every time I started it after a refill... dealer had no clue... changed all kinds of stuff. One day I found my auto popper for my gas door had been forced and my gas cap missing... I cursed and went and bought a new one. Took two mins to realize why it was stolen... stupid pricey and at that time only at the dealer, long story short... never had another code issue again. Now that was a code, car ran fine, just seemed possibly relevent! Lol.
