I have a 96 Merc Tracer Trio. While driving on the freeway, the engine completely shut down. I still had lights, etc. Once I got it to the side of the road, I let it sit for a few minutes, then tried to turn it over with no luck (Could hear the starter trying to engage, but it wasn't clicking like a dying battery). I'm thinking I might need a new ignition coil/distributor cap. Has anyone experienced this, or have a better idea of what could cause this? If so, is it an easy/cheap swap out?
have the same problem?
