Looks like Kneale and Randy got it. I drove the car to heat it up then let it idle with ac load and hood closed and she finally died. Cranked but no start. ?Poured some cool water on the flywheel sensors and she fired right up. Left it ideling and she died about 8-10 minutes later. Tried to start but would only crank did the water trick again?and she fired right up. Ordered the engine speed sensor. These cars must like water in any form, got her home one time by packing snow around the master cylinder when it failed and started to drag the brakes!? Thanks for the good help all....................RRF
