    Guys,

    I got a 91 stang vert. Out of no-where sometimes it just dies right after start-up, Hot and cold-Just shuts off. i changed the ignition switch (Recall part), Still does it....
    Not all the time, weird-Just sometimes. It will crank over-and then just die. I'll start it again-and it will kick over..... I am a bit lost-What should i do??

    Many thanks-Anthony :flag:

    you may have a grounding problem. Check your grounds on your battery and all your other grounds.

    Make sur all your sensor's are connected good, I had a simliar problem it was my Idle air control motor, the clip was broken and was just not making the connection ...just a suggestion. And yes I would check your battery terminal's. Do you have a car alarm could be the CMOS Battery could be bad therefore reseting your alarm "resetting the computer in the alarm". Let us know

    My bet is the tfi module. Thats a sympton right off the bat. Soon it probably wont start when it gets warm, will have to wait and let it cool down.
