Hello, I have a problem with my 1998 Acura 3.2 TL which has had no problems until now (226k miles). It dies while it's running, happened about 4 times now. I was sitting in an intersection this morning after driving about 3-5 minutes and it shook around a bit, then died (Gas tank 1/2 full). I was able to start it again and drive it to a nearby parking lot where it is parked right now, I am afraid to drive it again. I JUST replaced all 6 spark plugs as it had broken down previously in an intersection about a week ago - thought I had bad spark plugs, apparently it's something else.
Getting it towed to get it checked out - but my question is - is it worth it to fix? What could it be? Good car, would like to keep if fixable problem.
