99 explorer sport just shuts off while driving, doesnt matter if its warmed up or not,it can be 100 yards or 10 miles while driving,or in the morning when i start it it also does it!! no dash lite comes on to warn me it just boom!! shuts off:{ i changed the coil!! im thinking maybe the camshaft sensor? or module ????
