The car dying on you is one thing, the lack of control when it does so is due to the lack of power to the steering system and loss of vacuum to the brake servo. Before the days of power assistance we all had bulging arms and thighs in order to drive:-) You need to diagnose the reason for the sudden cutting out. Without additional symptoms it could be million things but I would concentrate first on 1)fuel getting from the tank to the engine and then 2) on the electrics surrounding all aspects of the ignition path.

1994 lincoln continental randomly dies while driving. It's getting fuel. What else could it be?


Thankfully, mine has never done that....if by 'body control module' you're referring to the electronic 'black box' that monitors various inputs and controls timing/ignition to make the car run; then it seems like you've already covered most of the obvious things that could be at fault, here. If by 'dies'; you mean the car actually stalls out while you're going down the road? Does it immediately restart after it happens, or does it have to sit for awhile, before it will fire up again? Do you lose your digital display (+ radio, fan, etc.) when this happens--or does everything turn off, then it all comes back on--except for the engine? Since it never happens when idling, it could be some kind of intermittent electrical problem--(ground strap coming loose?) caused by the vibration/bounces of driving....I'd look there first.

My 1991 toyota camry dies while Im driving


You must know if the fuel tank, line and filter are cleaned. It is probably because the fuel system is clogged. While you drive the fuel pump is taking the fuel as much as it can from fuel line and some fuel gets past the clog. When the fuel line is totally empty your car dies off. After you wait for some while the fuel has filled the line again and you can drive for a while. Also it can be some other problem, but for that i would need to know how often it happens, after what distance, does it twitches before it stops, it is fading out instantly or like loosing power but the engine doesnt sound to slow down accordingly during some 15 - 20 seconds until dies. There can be many reasons so it would help to know more.

I would try spark plugs and wires. If it was a fuel line you would see the leak or atleast smell it very strongly. If the problem still exists after new plugs and wires try the distributor cap.
