97 Oldsmobile 88 will die and all of the gauges go way up and then down?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It restarts, but has done this when I am driving it...scary, scary.  Anyone had a similar problem?  It has 90K miles on it.  Newer battery, new serpentine belt, newer battery cables and spark plugs.  Thank you! Kathy

Crank shaft position sensor was replaced a few weeks and so far, so good.
