What did the mechanics do to fix it, they may have just fixed the symptom not the problem. When my car broke earlier this year it would slow down and shake bad but once it cut off it didn't come back on. My mechanic said my car had jumped time and something inside broke and knocked the piston out of place. You may just need a new timing or balance belt.
