Car shuts off at random, and while going over bumps.
Ok, this is a really odd problem...
The car is a 89 GT. 205,000 miles, stock engine, Lentech AOD, and a few small bolt ons.
I recently did a basic tuneup (wires, plugs, dist cap, button, 180* thermo).
The problem is that the car shuts off while driving, and while idling at redlights and stop signs. If the car is moving (say at 45 mph), and I hit a bump in the road, the car will die, and then immediately come back on.
If im idling and it shuts off, it wont crank back up. The starter is turning the engine, and it fires up, then immediately shuts off. I have to hold the gas pedal in while cranking to get it to stay on, and that doesnt even work all the time.
While out in town today, it died on me about 10 times. And after sitting for a while, it still has problems staying cranked. I replaced the solenoid not long ago, but I dont see how this could be related to that.
Anyone have any clues as to why it just dies suddenly? No sputtering, or lugging. Just shuts off.
