Check where the engine harness meets the car side and see if the wires are bare.The sheilding sometimes falls off.Also check the engine speed sensor at the back of the engine.If the sheilding is cracked and falling off replace it.

The wire you speak of that has the blue sheilding under the black sheilding should be the speed sensor.

I had this problem -(car dies while driving) I had water coming in the air vent onto the passenger side carpet and on its way down to the floor some of it got into a small plastic box containing a couple of contact switches-it gradually caused them to corrode and become faulty-the box is located just under the dashboard on the passengers side-I replaced it and the problem was cured-the car is a 1982 244gl.-Vaughan
