ENGINE STOPS

2000 Mercury Marquis • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 34,000 miles

What would cause a 2000 model year car to run fine then cut off and after several minutes start back up and run.

Ignition module has same symptom you describe. Runs OK when cool, cuts off when hot, when cool again, it runs OK.

These can be tested (out of car) at most autoparts stores.
