1998 Grand Marquis starts then dies
HELP!!!!! I have a 1998 Grand Marquis with 80K miles on it. About 6 weeks ago, we got a big snow storm and i spent a lot of time driving with Traction Control off (to help get unstuck) and to do a little snow sliding... some time later the next day, the car started normally and was running fine for a minute or so then just died. no sputtering, nothing.. just died and would not start. It did crank but sounded like no fuel/spark. I had it towed to the shop and they brought it in the shop and it started fine and ran great until last week until our most recent big snow storm that i had to drive in and it died in my driveway the next day. Similar symptoms, except this time the T/C light stays on and the car sputtered a couple times before it died. No check engine light or ABS.. However, every time it sputtered, the Check Engine light and the temperature light flashed on for a brief second and went away as the cars idle returned to normal.
Most recent update, today i started the car and it ran good except for when it sputtered a couple times, but never died. Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.
PS, sorry for the novel, haha
