Sensor failure inside the distributor can cause intermittent stalling or a failure to start. In addition, the wires to the distributor are susceptible to internal damage, which can cause the same symptoms.Google+

Car will stall when driving it. I have to pull over and wait for a while then car usually starts again. I had a mechanic try to find out the problem he was not successful.
I can be driving and when I press my foot on the accelerator, it won't go it actually loses power for a few seconds and then picks up eventually.

I bought this car used and it started but the timing belt had never been replaced and was forced to replace it. For anyone who is considering this job I would suggest a lift cause it was a bear and took me and my son over two months to do because we had to make new tools to loosten these bolts that held the bracket over the covers. So when I get done the car wont start so i pull the distributor and decide to then pull the crankshaft position sensor and the sensor breaks off half way so I have freeze the plastic to shrink it then remove it from car. So now I have replaced that and am now ordering a new distributor to put in because it still would not start.

Stalls after running for a short time and restart. Will not restart after short stop.
May stall while at highway speed and will act like a miss with all electric dead (tack to 0)then start again.
After car sits overnight will restart.
No code errors.

Car idles poorly and stalls out at times. Notice especially when it is damp out. No resolution yet. Throttle body was replaced. Spark plugs. No improvement.
