i have a 96 chevy caprice that just all of a sudden died on me on the highway with a half tank of gas just 2 days after the battery was replaced. 2 months ago i had the distributor, plugs and wires, water pump, and 1 month ago starter replaced. I had it towed to a chevy service center and they talking about I might have to replace the ignition and get brand new keys. Does that sound like what it could be? Also one code did come up P0171 - system to lean (bank 1)

that code would not cause it to quit runnin and i don't think its the ignition. we had a couple cars do that and it turned out to be the crank censor.

not to sound like a smart ass but check the battery terminals, if they are loose and arching they could very easily do this that you talk about.....hell I have seen cars with loose terminals turn off and then come right back on while driving. weird stuff. Tell me more of the problems you are experiencing.
