You will be goin like 45 and the ca wil just die. Its not my car, but is it the MAF, or the IAC or somthin. It coded a 44 or somthin'. It was so long ago I can't remember. What could be causing this? Thanks guys!

not sure about the code but it sounds like a bad crank trigger.

No, its not a gas thing. The car starts right back up. He just pops it into neutral and starts it up. I think it happens more it wet weather, if that helps????

My car wold do the same thing,I believe there was a code 44 involved had several other codes too.Anyway it came up the car was shutting off the fuel as it was reading the fuel temp to high.I ended up replacing the ECM.Hope this helps.Also I could put the car in nuetral and it would restart.

Check your crank sensor.
I grenaded one in town had about 2,500 Rs heading down a main street and BAM Dead in the street.
Luckily, I had enough momentum to get her turned off on a side street.

Coincidently... It surged a couple times that day when I was driving along before she spewed magnet fragments all over the bottom of the engine.
