Hello mrhbollinger: My name is Roger and I will help you. You did not say Exactly what happened. If you were driving down the road and the engine died? Or if you pulled up to a stop and the engine died? I would check a few things first. Does the engine have over 60,000 to100,000 miles on it? If so I would look at the timing belt as a problem. Check the compression Compression should be around 160 psi. Any thing less then a 100 psi. the cylinder will not fire. Also keep in mind that this engine is a interference engine. This means should the timing belt break. The engine will suffer severe internal engine damage. By that I mean any valve that was open when timing belt broke will be damaged. Piston damage will also accrue. If the timing belt is not th problem I would look at the fuel system you should have 43 psi at the test port.I would also test for spark at the spark plug wires. If you have none and you check spark first. Check compression to make sure the timing belt is not the problem. If you remove the oil cap and can see the the camshaft. Have some one crank the engine over. If the valves do not move the timing belt is the problem. Should you need further help please just ask Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

It might have a partially blocked fuel line or ait intake supply.
Try to check the compression, it might be loosing compression when you demand the engine to move the vehicle.

Try running some fuel treatment in your fuel tank, if that doesnt help, try checking your spark plugs, It might be time to change them.
