Question type: General

I was driving when my car suddenly shut down, in the middle of the road. Why would the

Will it stay running if you feather the gas pedal? If so check idle air control valve and for dirty throttle plate.

Also how long since your last timing belt replacement? If won't stay running feathering the gas and only turns over with no start I would inspect timing belt and timing alignment.
