Engine stopped on me a few times

I need help, I was driving and all of a sudden the engine light came on and my engine stopped, so all the instrumental's lights came on. A minute after I started it up? It started up, and it stopped on me again like a min or two later. This engine stopping thing would happen just out of no where. Also when I was doing my oil change, I smell gasoline mixed in with my oil. Please help me!!

Could be an issue with the fuel injectors, done any maintenance on them since you've had the car?
Have you noticed the car running rich?

The only way I can think of where you would get gasoline mixed in with the oil is if you have both misfire (so the gasoline in the cylinder doesn't burn) and bad rings (so the gasoline blows by the rings into the crankcase).

Of course, if the rings are bad enough, it will cause misfire. You might want to do a compression check.

That would suck if my rings are worn out. And I haven't done as much maintenance yet, I was getting to it because I'm still in school and I got a job last month and I was saving up to maintain the car but this problem occurs. Do u think it maybe because the head gasket is worn?

Blown head gaskets usually send the gasoline into another cylinder or into the coolant. I suppose it is possible that it is sending gasoline into an oil coolant passage, but unlikely.

And, again, if it is a blown head gasket, a compression check will quickly identify it.

Usually it's not the whole distributor that needs to be changed. It could be the igniter in the dizzy. The exact thing happened to me.

There is also a DIY on how to rebuild a dizzy, got a JY near you? Get a used dizzy to gut for parts and a dizzy oring kit and go to town.

Wink Question

Did you clean your motor? If yes, disconnect your dizzy an wires connection an blow it out, dizzy wires always have to be dried.

What gasoline do you use? As for me... Shells in town & Chevron out of town (long drive) both cleans fuel system but one cleans better when driving distances.

When was the last time you cleaned your egr? If never, remember that our cb7s are almost our age. Lol

Do you know how to pull the codes from your cb7? If no, search it an you'll find a post.
