I had a similar behavior with my '01.
I ultimately figured out it was the Crankshaft Postion sensor. It's on the right rear of the engine at about the 1:00 position from the top. It's a pain to get to, but it can be done. You will need a 1/2" stubby wrench.
Do not buy a cheapo replacement. The initial one I bought only lasted a year. When I replaced that, I could see where the flywheel was rubbing against it.

Good Luck!
