Check engine isn't on. Haven't checked to see if there's stored codes.
I replaced the PGM main relay about 2 years ago when the engine wouldn't start at all. When you turned the key off and back on, then it would start and run.
I looked under the car and saw where the exhaust pipe coming down from the engine had taken a pretty hard lick, which relates the the statement my wife made a while back when she said, "I ran over something on the highway but I don't think it hurt anything because it kept going" A O2 sensor swap might be in order.
This car has been pretty hard on ignition modules. I've swapped distributors a couple of times. When it does that I get a SES light just before it fails.
When the car is acting up I could try jiggling the ignition switch to see if it clears up.
Good information and ideas to do further experimentation with. I'll let you know the results.
Thanks again. Jerry Morrow
