I have a person unfamiliar with Usenet who is asking me about an issue of I
know nothing, so I'd like to ask those here who do.
She's got a '96 Mercury Mystique with 150K miles on it. Up to now, it's not
exhibited any problems, but recently has begun stalling in a manner that
suggests the ignition.
So far, the coil, crank sensor and battery have been replaced by
professional mechanics. These same mechanics have run out of ideas, and
have told her to get a new car.
The car runs fine for about 20 minutes, then stalls. It will usually not
restart until she waits about 20 minutes before cranking.
Prior to the parts replacements mentioned above, the car would stall as
above, but restart immediately. Apparently it would also occasionally
stall, coast, then restart by itself.
The car right now is parked as she does not trust it.
If this were a Honda, I would suspect the igniter, but I don't know how
Ford does things. Any suggestions?
