I had a 1984 Ford Ranger with a 3.0L V6. During the colder months I would start the car and drive, once it would start coming up to operating temp it would cut off like "someone turned off the switch" I knew it was electrical because a fuel problem would choke the engine out. After I pulled to the side and waited a few minutes it would restart and no additional episodes would occure.

Working with my mechanic we tried everything until he decided to swap out the Ignition Module in the base of the distributer. That did it! although the part tested allright we could only speculate that warming of the engine was causing one of the contacts to expand and separate from its contact point.

I realize we Easter egged it but hey it worked.

Good Luck
