WHAT CAN CAUSE THE ENGINE TO SHUT OFF AND THEN RESTART SOMETIMES RIGHT AWAY,THIS PROBLEM IS AT RANDOM. THEN AT OTHER TIMES THE CAR WILL NOT RESTART UNTIL IT SITS OVER NITE? WE HAVE REPLACED A NUMBER OF PARTS, FUEL PUMP,ETC. IT HAS BLOWN 2 MUFFLERS WHEN IT BACK FIRES AND START BACK RUNNING ON ITS OWN WITHOUT A RESTART ATTEMPT.WHAT THE WORLD??????IT SEEMS AS IF THE IGNITION TURNS ITSELF OFF THEN RIGHT BACK ON AUTOMATIC, YOU KNOW HOW WE USE TO DO BACK IN THE DAY,TURN THE IGNITION OFF , LOAD UP THE EXHAUST WITH RAW GAS,THEN BACK ON AGAIN,AND LAUGH YOURSELF SILLY SCARING PEDESTRIANS... ANY SUGGESTIONS???
