First thing i would check would be the fuel filter. Sometimes, when they first start to give problems, there is enough gas to keep them idling or driving around town, but when you get on the highway they starve for fuel.

Why does my 93 Honda Accord run fine and then dies going down the road and will start again and die again?


There is a black fuel relay way up under the top left driver side dash that breaks its main wire solder connections on the circuit board under over-heat conditions. Resolder that relay. Starting fluid will show that you have lost fuel delivery under no start conditions. You can use the breather hose from the valve cover for this test.

Needs tuning. Also replace fuel and air filters. If that doesn't help then it may need piston ring replacement.

When it's warm... It DIES


If you couldn't get your money I would never go there again, it sounds as if there is a possible head gasket problem. I don't know those codes but there is a website on the web that has explanations of those.

1993 Ford Explorer bogging down


This is not a bogging down problem if the engine is reving up it sounds like you have a very badley slipping tourk converter or you have a band in your tranny slipping and that is why you can go for a little while longer if you shut it off
