     Well, the Crown Vic konked out once with that minimal keychain, but it restarted easily.  However, the car was low on fuel, enough to pop on the Low Fuel light but there should have been a reserve of 3 to 4 gallons.  So, I've been driving with the minimal keychain and have been keeping the gas tank more full of fuel.
     I also sprayed half a can of Gumout down the throat of the MAF and wiped away any gumminess around that throat and flapper.

          No engine dying so far,

     Problem solved!  At the last gas fill-up, I pumped more gas into the car than usual.  I discovered that when the Low Fuel light came on, the car only had 1 to 2 gallons left in the tank, not the 3 to 4.  The tank float level had changed!  When I had gone around the corner with Low Fuel light on, that 1 to 2 gallons had sloshed to one side of the tank, and there was nothing for the fuel pick-up to suck up.  When I had stopped and the car restarted, the gas had leveled out for the fuel pick-up to get to the 1 to 2 gallons.  In other words, when that Low Fuel light comes on now, I'd really better get some gas into the car and fast!

          Truly,
