    In this forum, you described the EXACT symptoms that my car is having, but not the solution:

    http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic452896.htm

    You said:

    > When it dies while driving...[does it need] extended cranking time before restarting?

    Yes, it needs extended cranking time.

    > If it's hard to restart, does giving it some gas pedal seem to help it?

    Yes, a lot. You can usually get the car to start again if you give it enough gas while cranking.

    > Does it seem to die the instant you drop the gas pedal when it happens...

    Oh, the car just stalls suddenly, no matter what you are doing. It just shuts off, sometimes while driving. Very scary.

    I thought from your question #2 above that you might know exactly what is happening. I find it odd that my stalling situation is overcome by providing lots of gas--and I'm hoping you can tell me what is happening!

    Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    Sincerely,

    Dennis

    Hi Jeffcoslacker

    question = when installing monroe sensa trac struts in the lumina what kind of oil does it require and how do you know the correct amount to use?

    as always, thanks for your help.
