1994 Ford Probe Question: Is it a distributor issue, cap, or ignition?

 

Question

Just had an axle replaced by a transmission specialist. As soon as I left the shop, my car would get up to 3000 RPMs and die. I would sit for a few minutes, restart it with no problem and then get up to 3000 RPMs, it dies. I have been told I have to replace the distributor by someone who physically looked at it, but told that it is an ignition system issue by someone else. Please help. Thank you!!

    could the shop have possibly left something unplugged, was it running like this before you dropped it off to have the axle replaced.

    good luck, these cars are freakin wacko, they rely on so many electricals, getting a diagnostic would be the best idea.
