Yesterday, I spent the day driving from Van Buren, AR, to Rio Rancho, NM. A few miles into Oklahoma, the Crown Vic just stopped running in the middle of I-40. The engine just shut off. I coasted to a stop on the shoulder, popped the hood, and looked for anything leaking or a broken belt, but saw nothing. After a few minutes, I turned the key and it started again. We drove to Oklahoma City and stopped at a Firestone that was about to close. They did an engine code check, and saw that there was a throttle error, but did not have time to run a diagnostic before closing time. We continued west.
In Amarillo, we stopped for dinner at Red Lobster (to celebrate my birthday!) and then continued west. As we were way behind schedule, we ended up pulling over and sleeping for a bit before returning home right before sunrise.
Happy Father’s Day to my dad!
