What's the weather doing in your area that time of year? If it's typically wet, you may have a loose electrical seal.

Check to see if you have spark. If you do not have spark at the plugs, check for spark at the distributor (the coil wire), if you do not have spark there, using a test light, check to see if you have power and ground at the coil. If you have power and ground at the coil, check for a pulsating signal at the coil when you are cranking the engine. If you do not have a pulsating signal, then you did not put in a good distributor. If you have spark then you really need to test fuel pressure. If none of these helps you may have a problem with the ignition module or starter. Changing the ignition module and the starter will correct your problem.

Obviously, changing the module and starter may not fix your problem, and your engine does not have a distributor.

If its a automatic, I wonder if it could possibly be the lock up converter solenoid? Does it die when are coming to a stop? Sort of like you are driving with a standard transmission and not mashing the clutch in to stop which kills the engine? Just an idea.

Re: 07 mustang dies while driving starts back up and drives

Ignore the advice about the distributor, starter and ignition module. Your car doesn't even have a distributor, and if the starter is turning the engine over, it is most likely functioning properly. The "ignition module" is your PCM.

Do I understand you correctly? The car only dies once or twice a year after sitting all winter? If this is the case, then sitting all winter without proper precaution is probably what causes the problem. Fuel will get stale, your battery will lose charge and fuel varnish will form on the throttle body and fuel injectors. I'm surprised that it only stalls once, or even occasionally, after sitting for so long.

If you cannot drive the car long enough to sufficiently warm the oil (to boil off condensation moisture inside the engine, exhaust, and electrical connections, which could affect the torque converter lock up, mentioned by Catskinner and JWKO) and charge the battery during winter, at least, use fuel stabilizer and trickle charge the battery. Cars deterioate rapidly when sitting for lenghty periods.

Re: 07 mustang dies while driving starts back up and drives

I've drove the car weeks even months before anything happens so it would be fuel I won't say plus I use stabilizer that's what has me stumped

The car idle extremely low around 500-600 on tach is that normal and when you turn air on at idle it doesn't go up in rpm
