My ford dies and won't restart for 5 minutes. As I was sitting idle yesterday, the car died and wouldn't restart for about 5 minutes, then again today, as I was taking off from a stop, the car died and wouldn't restart for about the same amount. Last week the engine light came on and when I took it to the mechanic the code for the catalytic converters came on, so we had them replaced. Then the next day, the car died and wouldn't restart and the engine light came on again and it was the fuel system (fuel filter and rail system), so had that fixed. Then yesterday when it died no engine light, so no code and again today, no light, no code. The mechanic is baffled and so am I. I've spent more money on the car in 1 week than I wanted to, but now I just want to get it fixed.
