Why doesn't it start?

If a diesel motor stops of its own accord, you've got problems, young man.

You have eliminated the one obvious fault for that problem.

When is the last time you checked the oil level?
When did you last change the oil?
When did you last check the air and fuel filters?

I don't see the make or model, of vehicle.

Does the starter turn the crank when you try to start it?

You stated you were "driving it". Was it going "freeway" speed or at a stop sign?

Did it sputter prior to the stall?

Did it continue to roll or did the motor sieze(wheel lock up)?,

Either way, you are minimally into it for a new motor is guess.

There isn't enough information posted to make a call, Carlos.

How about the basics. Make and model at a minimum.

My Toyota Celica continues to try and stall/sputter while either stopped at a light/stop sign and now while I'm driving. Please help diagnose.

A faulty EGR system will also cause this kind of problem, as well as a dirty throttle body. Have then checked.

98 cavalier sputters and backfires at 2000-4000rpms

if your car is spitting and sputtering than you have a timing problem, you either need a new timing belt or if you have a new belt it is installed improperly. probably off by one or two teeth.
