IT HAPPENED AGAIN
The worst this time
So one week has gone by since the last time but this time was bad. Out with the whole family for a photo shoot, so after we decide to go for a ride.
It'* been sunny and warm the last couple of weeks with more in the forecast.
After about 15 minutes of highway driving with little to no traffic, I decide to pick up the pace a little. Going around 100 kph and then I go 3/4 throttle.
Instantly the tach drops to zero and I'm coasting dead at 110 kph.
I slow it down until the brake volume booster runs out of vacuum.....both feet on the brakes. The steering is fine...until it slows down.
So there we are 15 miles from town in the middle of nowhere all dressed up in suits and dresses.
Stop, put it in neutral then park trying to start but nothing, dead.
I pop the hood, for lack of anything else to do, and jiggle some wiring around the fuse box. Nothing looks out of place. Fan is still running, like it should for 3 min after shut off.
5 minutes later I try it and it starts fine.
Then we are heading back home and 5 minutes later I give it another goose and bam, it dies again at 100 kph. Instant drop off of the tach from 3500 rpm to 0.
This time it took about the same 5 minutes before I could get any reaction out of the starter. All other power was fine.
It'* parked in my garage right now.
Victor wants to bring the Firebird instead of the Bonne to the WCBF06 Meet. :(
It has never let us down like this car just has.
