    My '95 Riv keeps shutting off on the hwy over short distances, the tractionlight stays on and the engine light comes on. It starts back up and sometimes does not die all the way, but starts up on it's own while I'm moving. A dealer and several mechanics have look at it, but haven't found anything but my money. Traction control shudders as well when it is put on.

    Any suggestion PLEASE?

I had the same problem with mine. Everytime I got it to a mechanic they couldn't find the problem. 3 mechanics and 1 and a half months later - turned out to be a bad computer. Replaced it and runs great. Very hard to diagnose they have to have it on computer when it happens.

Could be but the sympton youdescribed leads me to believe the crank sensor the coilpacks would kill spark if bad but they usually stop working and stay that way

Plugged fuel filter. There are two - one in the tank and one in the fuel line. Probably the one in the fuel line so change that one first.
