This is kind of old but I'm hoping to get more info. Nightpath, did the solenoid solve the problem? I had the same problem with the wagon I got in Arkansas . It would just shut off but restart with no problem. Running down the hiway and die . Put it in neutral at 60 and it would restart and go. Then it ran great with no issues for 2 years .Now it's acting up again. Not all the time ,maybe once a week, but it is aggravating.

I fixed mine 100% by doing a drivetrain swap ;)

Mine was the crap solenoid causing issues, and a crap battery. It was getting voltage spikes or none at all, and was killing the car repeatedly after 15 minutes of driving.
