    r problem was they would stall for no reason. It did not seem to
    matter how long the car was driven for, or the outside temperature. You
    would be driving along and it just stalls. You pull over and wait about
    5 minutes and it starts up. You don't have any problems after that for
    at least a couple of days, or weeks.

    We too went years before we actually figured out what it was. It was
    suggested by somebody on the internet to change the engine pickup sensor
    (located under the distributer cap). We did just that on the Shadow
    first, and have not had a problem for at least 3 months. The car is
    being driven every day, and it has not given any problems after changing
    that sensor. We then changed it on the Dynasty and that car has been
    fine ever since.

    The sensor on the Dynasty was expensive (about $300 CAD), but the sensor
    on the Shadow was cheap ($50 CAD).
