I DROVE THE CAR AND IT DIED WHILE I WAS DRIVING IT AN HOUR LATER IT STARTED AND DROVE IT MAYBE 5 MILES IT DIED AGAIN ANOTHER HOUR LATER IT STARTED AGAIN AND MADE IT ABOUT A 1/4 MILE AND DIED. WE CHANGED THE FUEL FILTER. NOW IT WILL START AND IMMEDIATLY DIE. BUT IT DOES STILL START.

    sounds like a fuel pump failing. you need to have the pressure checked.
    a shop can do this for you and give you a bid.

    or it could be one of the sensors. My 92 w/259K did this and it was the main sensor.
