Hey Jesse, I have a 1992 lexus sc 400 It is doing the same thing. Drive a ways then stays in neutral when its in drive. You pull over start it up again and it works for another 5 min or so. I think it may be related to electrical. I was told by my mechanic if I changed the battery in it. It happens I did. But I think its not the stock batterry for car. try putting a new stock battery in from Lordco. If you get an answer please let me know. It just happened today. I have to ride bike to work. My number is 604-832-2215
