Q: engine quits without warning

asked by on

My car is in just about in perfect condition. The last couple of days my engine would turn off while I was driving down the road. I have to pull over to restart the car. I never had this problem before. It is scary because it turns off without warning. None of my check-engine lights or other warning lights come on. I have the origianl battery. It has 52,000 miles on it, and I bought it brand new. I am not driving tomorrow and taking it to the repair shop. Too scary to drive. Can you think of anything that might be causing this?
