try changing the pick up sensor ,and cleaning the connections on the coil pack,could just the be the connections on the pick up sensor itself.Hope this is just your sunday car and your daily car is a small engined shopping basket type of car.thinking here and its hard as only ever seen one on an american tv show but if its all dropping off ???what about the ignition contact switch on the steering lock,its not loose or contacts worn ??my sunday car is a 4lt jaguar XJ6 sovereign so i cant call the pot black can i.But whatever it is, this is a stupid thing causing this and its down to trial and error to locate the fault

SOURCE: 89 thunderbird - 3.8 Car dies
i had this problem on my 88 t-bird 3.8L. not exactly sure of the cause but to remedy mine... it seems the computer was not telling the fuel pump that the car was running. so the fuel pump would quit pumping. run a wire from your battery to the positive line going to the fuel pump (temporary). if this solves the problem (and you don't mind solving it this way) make the wire run clean and hook it to a switch so you can turn it on when you wanna drive. this is not the way a dealership would fix it but its also not gonna cost you more than you probably have invested in your car. hope this helps

okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

Have you replaced the timing belt? if not i would highly recommend doing so. these cars need to have the timing belt replaced before it breaks otherwise it can and will cause major engine damage.

Have you tried putting some gas additive like sea foam into the gas tank prior to filling it up? It may be a bad or clogged injector.
When is the last time you did a tune up, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap with rotor etc?
Is the engine surging in rpm? if so, try replacing the mas air flow censer and or O2 censer.
