Encouraged, nay, EMBOLDENED, by the 1,100 mile trip to Cincy, I decided to drive to work today. 70s all day, gorgeous sunshine, glorious drive.
Took it for a spin at lunch, loving life.
Worked a little later tonight, heading home for family dinner.
Driving home, car stopped DEAD. Tach dropped to zero, not a stall, just abrupt like a switch was flipped.
See this happened once on the way home from Cincy. Thought it stalled, so I downshifted to jump start it.
Nothing. Just engine braking.
Came to a stop on the shoulder. Turned key off, turned key on. Right back to life.
Now waiting for a tow truck home. Glad now and not in the middle of Ohio.
I’m thinking coil or plug wires. But maybe ignition switch? I remember fairly catastrophic failure of that in my 16V.
Anyway, pics while the sun goes down.
