I recently had the distributor problems that a lot of you have been talking about. I was up at school when it got really bad (dying like every 10 seconds) and I don't let shops work on my car. It's about 100 miles for me to drive home to replace it. The car kept dying on the way home and I didn't know what to do. If any of you ever get stuck in this situation where your car dies so often you don't think you're gonna make it home, don't call a tow truck. I found that there is a certain RPM at which the car will shut off. For me, it was 3000. No matter what I did to the car before 3000RPM it would not die. I could bog it up hills and floor it up until 3000. At least this will help you limp home. I just thought I would share this because it really helped me today and thought that some of you might be stuck with your car dying someday.
