Yup, sounds about rite. This happened to me on my ol
Pearl beast slowing down to stop at a light..car just
died on me. It restart, & I got past the intersection
before it died again. I poured 3 bottles of water on
the bellhousing, car restart & I got it home the rest
of the way. Granted I was literally only 2 minutes
away from my house.
The next day I ordered the 2 sensors from
Bruce..never had a problem after.
