How many miles are on this vehicle? Was there any other work done to the engine before the alternator replacement? Are there any lights that come on, such as check engine??? Also, what year is the vehicle and engine size?

    Ok, you need to plug the spark plugs and inspect them and possibly replace them if this was never done. Also, you can purchase a can of Intake fuel injection cleaner and spray out the throttle body, the throttle body is most likely gummed up. If this does not correct the problem, you will need to check your fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge. Was the fuel filter changed, if so when. How long have you owned the vehicle?? Why was the alternator replaced?? How old is the battery??? Sorry for all the questions, but I have to know where we stand. Thanks.

Engine shuts off when idiling, and when running

Hi Anthony, Sounds to me as if you possibly have a problem with fuel delivery? When did you last have the vehicle serviced? Have a diagnostic scan carried out in the event that a sensor is giving problems. Regards John

1991 Plymouth Acclaim car drives then suddenly motor winds and car stops driving

My guess would be the transaxle.
Pump, clutches, valve body, solenoids, torque converter, and so on.
A mechanic might give you some suggestions after a test drive.
