1989 300TE stalled doing 75 MPH
Had a rather harrowing experience today stalling at 75 mph in the left lane of 3-lane traffic (yeah I was passing). Somehow made it to the right shoulder, but this just can't happen, especially with my son behind the wheel. Here are the symptoms. Any ideas on a diagnosis would be greatly appreciated.
* Car stalled a couple of times at low-speed (10-15 MPH) 2 months ago.
* *All* the dash lights came on then, and was the same case today.
* Starts right back up (with a little extra cranking than normal) and seems to run completely normally.
* Based on several threads here, I swapped out the OVP with a Mercedes OVP from Pelican Parts. No more stalling until today, and patted myself on the back, thinking the problem was solved. I don't think it's the OVP.
Thanks a lot for any insight.
