New Guy From Goergia

Im finally signing up now after lurking here for a couple years.

I have a 1992 400E in black that I got back in 2007 and I get the feeling it doesnt like me. Its tried to kill me a couple times and its left me stranded as well.

The first time it tried to kill me I was on a spirited drive on a twisty back road and when I hit the brakes to go around a sharp corner the ABS decides not to work anymore and I go off the road. Luckily though it was just somebodys open front yard and I didnt hit anything. Not long after that I was driving down an entry ramp onto the interstate in a moderate rain under light acceleration going straight and it decides to throw me into the ditch where get a small dent just above the drivers side tail light and a big one in the spare tire well, but its still just as driveable.

Now recently the engine started running rough for a few days and I couldnt find the problem and then one day while a was driving along it quit altogether and hasnt started since. I think it is an ignition problem and I replaced the caps and rotors and spark plugs with no effect. When it turns over it still is firing on some cylinders but not enough to run. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(Ill be listing this problem in the 124 forum as well)
