The problem is an air leak leaning the fuel mix. The idle speed starts going up a ramp until it is wide open. The valves no longer seating well is a possible cause as is air manifold gaskets, rings and a cylinder head not torqued down tight.

Going down the road a 55mph and it just dies like you shut off the key and after a few mins it will start back up what will make this just start messing up out of the blue it runs great


Hello Jimmy, sounds like the coils may be going out, then they fire again after they cool off. You would need to determine if you have a no spark condition when the engine shuts off. It could also be a fuel delivery problem, or possible vapor lock. Also check the battery and the charging system, you should have 13.5-14.5 volts at the battery with the engine running at 2000 RPM.
I would troubleshoot these things first.

This is why we do not let girls drive..... OKAY just kidding.

I suggest that you chech the pickup filter and the normal fuel filter for contamination.

Replace the coolant sensor. If the system were to decide that it is too hot, it can shut down, after the "limp home" mode runs out.
