[DML] Re: Washed car, died OTR 15 minutes later

Another place to check is the white ballast resistor on the firewall
in front of the motor. The connectors corrode and can cause a bad
connection. Take them apart one-at-a-time and clean them up. If it has
been a while since the ignition wires or spark plugs have been
replaced it may be time. John is a generous person with his time and
advice. His parts are a good value too!
