engine shuts off while driving
I am experiencing a strange and scary problem with my '89 260E. 141K. Several months ago I had the car shut down on me as I was driving along, no warning signs at all, the engine just shut down. Immediate restarting just turns over and over with no fire. Wait a few minutes, it starts right up. About a week ago, same thing but it was just after I had replaced the fuel filter and I thought maybe air in the line (whatever...). But today it happened twice. The car runs great but this scares me. I lose the power steeering but the brakes are still ok, radio still on, just no engine.
Any ideas? Something simple perhaps?
Thanks in advance for any assistance...
