No warning lights at all. The engine shuts off then all the cluster Lights come on

After half an hour or so it will restart with no pronlem

Well after a quick search it seems this is a common problem, and is caused by the crank shaft position sensor, they run about $60 bucks on ebay it requires a E8 torx and takes about 10 minutes to change out.
