1. Re-seating the plug wire seemed to cure the problem. Maybe while driving, the wire came off again. 2. When the engine seems to die and the dash lights go off, this could be due to a loose/corroded battery cable..... You need to have this car serviced properly. A decent mechanic will make sure that everything is clean and adjusted properly.
