Hi All,

My normally trustworthy steed went AWOL on me this past weekend.  Driving 
down the road and it just died.  Check engine light came on and car lost all 
power (still had electrical).  I let it sit for about 10 minutes, and it 
started up again, only to die about 10 minutes later.  It continued to do 
this until I made it home--interesting trip to say the least.

I'm guessing it's the engine sensors.  Any speculation out there as to which 
one?  Looking for a cheap source for them so I can replace and get the car 
back running normal.

Also, I understand that Steve B.  fashioned a heat shield to protect the 
sensors from damage.  Steve, was that an off-the-shelf item?  Any info on 
it?  I figure while I'm in there I might as well look for a more permanent
