Saturday night I was traveling along at about 40mph when my car gave a spit and a shudder and lost power immediately. I had to pull to the side of the road and as I stopped the car, so did the engine.My point of view stays the same
If your DIC is bad , your car should run with Multiple misfires.
So you should be able to start.
It's just going down the hill from that moment on .
And you are standing completely down that hill (instantly)
It's hard to believe that your DIC would TOTALLY break down instantly .
I'm learning that the hard way unclemiltie LOLwhich is why most of us around here have a spare either in the trunk or at home. I've seen them die instantly as well. the OEM TK3.7 units seem to be better though.
