90 Crown Vic just dies
I have a 90 Crown Victoria that I love to drive! I recently relocated to the mountains, yes, I know...it is a bi*** on gas!!
Anyway, as I cruise up the mountain, the car will suddenly start to "sputter" and eventually just die. I have to make sure I am near a turn-out before it dies! I will need to let the car sit for about 15 minutes before I can take-off again. My temp guage doesn't show it being "too hot", just a little past midpoint on the temp guage, and I recently changed the thermostat and flushed (stuck the hose down the radiator and ran it for like 15 mins) the cooling system before added coolant.
