Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving down the highway and engine simply quit. I pulled over and let it sit and cool for a bit, tried to restart with no luck. Engine cranks over but never starts.

ignition module can fail at any given time, with luck a thorough cool down will let the broken circuit retract enough to make contact and do its job. Imagine if this was your private aero plane, wow!
