"would stop running while driving down the road" could be a fuel problem or a spark problem- is all the maintenance up to date? (fuel filter, spark plugs, cap and rotor, etc.) there are ways to check for fuel being delivered and ways to check for spark being delivered- check those, but if you are an amateur, I'm not going to tell you how to do it 'cause you could get hurt-
