Start by getting the Haynes repair manual on the vehicle. Assuming you have never replaced the Timing Belt I would look at that first. If this vehicle has a Distributor remove the cap and crank the motor. If the Rotor does not turn the Timing belt is broken. If the Timing belt is good start following the trouble shooting steps in the Haynes manual to isolate the problem.

My plymouth, voyager turns off while I'm driving it down the road..


Just an Idea. When it dies next time check the relay temperatures, if you can. Once I had a fan relay which would over heat and the radiator fan would not work. After relay cooled down it would work(This usually happened when I was stuck in traffic). Could be a fuel pump relay. If relay is a lot hotter than the other relay could be bad relay. My thought is it will not cost you anything to try it. I think it may be something electrical over heating. 30 years ago my thought would have been the coil, when the coil started going bad it would heat up and the car would die till it cooled off.

93 nissan altima died on the road, won't turn


If it just up and died on the road and will not turn over now even with a jump it almost sounds like you engine may have locked up on you. But it is hard to tell without actually seeing the car. For your sake I do hope it is a different problem. I would like to help you out more. Can you be more specific as to what the car did when it quit on you? Did it make any sounds or anything? Did it quit when you where actually driving or were you sitting some place at an idle? I look forward to hearing from you.
