Engine Periodically Dies, but Starts Back Up

My engine will start fine, but once I am driving the engine will periodically die. When this happens I get a warning light that looks kind of like -o-, but tilted to the right. It is the same light that turns on when I start my truck. What can cause this?

Check for frayed wire/s between main harnes and dist. and coil. when you go around corners or step on the gas, the engine tilts hence frayed wire/s are grounding out to either the engine or the body.

It could be your distribuitor sensor inside the disctribuitor or look for a posible aftermarket ignition module installed inside distribuitor and have it replace

Engine dies at 150 degrees.


sounds like its not accident related, more like a idle air control motor or something of that nature, ive also herd of this happening when the crank sensor is going bad, it warms up and starts missing the signal.
