I was hoping someone could me help me with this problem.
I drive a 1989 Chrysler New Yorker that's in really, really good
condition physical and mechnical condition for a car this old. I'm
only the 3rd owner. The first owners were proverbial Sunday drivers,
the second a mechanic who used it as a "loaner" car, and now me. So,
suffice it to say, the car's been well taken care of. However, a
problem has now cropped up.
Whenever it gets hot outside -- say upper 70s or hotter -- after
riding for a while, be it city or highway driving, the car starts to
suddenly loose power and then it totally dies. We have to pull over
to the side of the road for an hour or two to let the engine cool off,
before we can get back home. It doesn't do this everytime, just
periodically. In other words, I can't predict when it's going to
happen when we're on the road.
Has anyone ever heard of such a problem? What could be causing this?
Again, the car is in very good condition and has been well
maintained. It's scary because this has happened on the highway,
which I know is rather dangerous.
I appreciate any help or insight you're able to give.
(p.s., I've already had a new fuel filter and pump and other fuel-
related stuff put in, so that waasn't the problem.)
