Shutting Down then Restarts
Having a problem with my MSD when hooked in the truck runs for a while (20-30 min.) then wants to stall or does. Have been driving it then it stalls, have to restart, then the other night going from Windsor to Chatham it shut down then re-started while it was rolling but then I had to pull off at hwy.77 and it was like running on 5 cyl. and check eng. light came on and pushing Black smoke out the pipes. Called the wife for a ride home and while waiting I pulled the battery cable and let sit for 20 or so minutes, then replaced the cable and it started right up hitting on all 8 cyl. so I had the wife follow and I drove it to Chatham and it was running good, but on the trip from Windsor to 77 it hick-uped a few times and wanted to change gears but then switched right back again ??
Seems like I am losing power or the ground and it resets itself and it is more pronounced when the MSD is hooked in the system and if I unplug the adapter harness and go just reg. ignition the problem is not as often or as bad ??
