My car just shut off while driving. I just replaced the thermostat and the intake manifold. I was told that the back freeze plugs are leaking a little, but my promblem is with the car just shutting off. The check engine light flashes at the same time the temperature gage flashes. Then the trac cntrl light turns on. Some times it will flash so fast that the car will just shut off. Now my car will not go more than 10ft before it shuts off. What is my promble? Electrical computer system maybe!

Retrieve the diagnostic codes from the powertrain control module, post them here and then someone can give you an idea about what should be checked. Also, double check all the electrical connectors and hoses that you removed during the recently performed repairs.
