Yeah just replaced it but doesn't seem to be the problem. It keeps shutting off on me while I'm driving but now it happens even more

Checked out your car...impressive👍💦 I was saving up to finally start some mods but blew that money on repairs now...

Yeah it turns off while I have my foot on the gas, at a light, different rpms it happpens randomly. It would happen 2 to 5 times from A to B. After reading about people with similar issues I replaced the ignition switch yesterday. It drove great the whole day.

Driving back home from work it turned off on me again but it wouldn't start right away. Turned the ignition two three times, it would studer then turn on. As I turn the switch in gassed it and put it in gear real quick. Travel a couple of feet and it would turn off. It happened 10 more times and that's when I decided to call a tow truck... it seems that the issue is worse now...have no idea what to do.
