because its low reved..... i had a 95 Lincoln and replaced many things on the car. i finally took it to the dealer and it turned out to be my mass air flow sensor. the air filter was ripped and the debris recked the sensor. the car would bog then it would die, but would restart after a minute or two. hope this helps because it can be many things that can cause the car to die
