The two main suspects would be the fuel pump or the ignition module inside of the distributor. You can remove your ignition module from the distributor and have it tested for free at most auto parts stores.

If you install the ignition module (either a new one or the old one), be sure to clean the mounting surface inside of the distributor, and be certain that you completely coat the metal mounting surface of the ignition module with a generous coat of die-electric grease or a die-electric compound. (Do not leave any uncoated contact suface)

Check the computer controlled idle valve or motor. And clean it and the air passages it controls with a sensor safe cleaner. Throttle body cleaner or intake cleaner made by CRC (at Napa) works good. Check for a dirty air filter.

Check to see fi your fuel pump is functioning, also change the fuel filter. I had this same problem on a 1984 626. While i waited for the car to restart fuel would seep into the line to allow for the enging to startbe that was it.
