while driving, the car quits running. Place in "N" and it restarts. The engine revs up and down prior to quitting. is this the mass air flow or the ignition switch?

    It may be the MAF Sensor, but unlikely that it's the ignition switch. The ideal next step is to check the diagnostic trouble codes, has that been done? And I would also check the fuel pressure.
