My 94 TBird shuts off when it's hot out but the temp Meter never goes to hot it get to the middle and she shuts off
when I'm sitting. Even at running temp doesnt hit the middle. But could it shut off because I may need a new
thermastat? What could be the reson for this? Oh and when she shuts off I starte her rite back i do wait a couple off
seconds before starting back up again.


Thanks for any suggestion!!

I suspect your TFI module is faulty. Have someone look into/test this for you. Classis symptom is your car shuts off when warm nd your able to start it back up when cool. It a candy bar size module attached to the side of the distributor, has a big plug attached to it. Also could be a dirty throttle body and IAC sensor. Clean those first before replacing the module.
