I had the same problem. It was the crank shaft positioning sensor. If you have a somewhat mechanical mind or a good friend you can do it yourself. I ordered the part on Ebay with my vin # and got the part. Helpful hint is to make sure the wire is tucked back in place otherwise the timing belt will cut right into it.(it happened to me) Hope this helps.

My car shuts down going down the road with no warning. It starts back.


It could be that your vehicle is engaging the "safe mode" upon restarting. Auto Zone and Advance Auto will perform a complimentary diagnostic check which will most likely identify the issue. The trouble codes are stored and may be retrieved even when your car is running okay.

2006 Ford F-250 6.0 Engine just shuts down at an idel or going down the road. it has a bad glow plug and shows a code for it . I just replaced the cam posithion sensor. Does the engine keep shuttting


I have had the same problem with my Ford mustang the only thing is that it only shuts down in high idle, after the engine temperature warms up there is no shut down. It could have something to do with the transmission or the temperature sensor the best thing to do is get a full diagnostic and not do it your self.

Batter over charging, car shut off going down the road


Ok, you got me on this one. How can you tell that the battery is overcharged. By it's design the battery will only produce a certain amount of voltage. And the vehicle's electrical system is protected against excess voltage and amperage. Now, if the battery is not being charged by the alternator, it will eventually use up all the stored voltage, and then your car would die. There are any number of things that could cause the car to shut off while going down the road. A drained battery, no fuel, no spark. Were you able to restart the car?

Engine shuts off going down the road


We had a similar problem and it was the connector that connects the ignition module (bottom of coil packs to the wiring harness. The technician spread the socket connectors and it solved the issue.
