98 SSE Intermittent Random Stalling- just about got creamed
I have a 98 SSE.
The car has been fantastic until about 2 weeks ago. It has started to randomly stall while driving, (meaning complete engine and electrical shutdown, without warning). It has done this about 8 times now at varying speeds and driving situations. Every time I pull it to the side, stop it, put it in park and it restarts as if nothing happened.
I took it to a nearby mechanic who told me the connectors weren't quite tight on the battery terminals. They tightened them and said it should be fine. It has stalled twice since, so it was definitely not that.
The last time (today) I was in the middle of an intersection and would have been creamed if the oncoming drivers hadn't been pretty heads up about my situation.
I have read on other boards that this is a common promblem and many people have spent big bucks trying to diagnose it. I am trying to save my wallet and my hide by pinpointing the likely reasons here. Can anyone lend a hand??
