OK anastasia, I (we) would love to help you but that kind of question needs a bit of elaboration. Does it crank over for a while and eventually start and run? When it does run, does it run smooth, or misfire.....do you have to have to pump the throttle? Any unusual noise? Anything you can tell us more?

PS please do that, let us know, good luck ....it might be a 29 cent part and $300 labor, which is not as ridiculous as that sounds

check the battery connectors, sometimes on older cars they oxidize turn green and do not work properly, also the one that attaches to car body (ground I think), I had 89 supra and it was shutting off for no apparent reason also, after I cleaned those connectors it fixed my problem.
