My Town Car typically starts, runs, and drives beautifully. Primary exception is that when shifting gears (normally from drive or reverse to drive or reverse), after I shift, if I do not give it a ~5 second pause before turning the wheel or taking my foot off the brake, the car will sometimes die. If I give it the ~5 second pause, it works beautifully and there is not a problem.
The other issue (possibly related, but I do not know), is that if the car is warm (and it seems like higher temperature and/or humidity makes it happen more often), and I turn it off and back on within ~5 minutes, when I turn it back on, the engine may rev very high, and then die immediately. If I press on the gas a little bit as I start, it does not die.
I appreciate your help.
have the same problem?
