Sounds like the all too common Top Dead Centre ( TDC ) sensor problem. It may just need a clean with some fine sandpaper.

If you do a search for Top Dead Centre you will find a post showing you how to remove and clean.

Most diagnostics seem incapable of diagnosing this for some reason ?? (maybe because its such a cheap fix)

Hope you get it sorted soon.
