I had a Dodge omni that did that exact thing and it turned out to be a $15.00 part that was located under the distributor. I forgot the name of the part though. .

Answerthis same problem happened to me..i have yet to solve it tho. it was running, then it started running rough so i pulled over to take a look under the hood. It never did turn back on..(84 Toyota celica)

Well this happened to me, i ad to change the ignition module and it ran just fine

If it doesn't start or even turn over, I would suspect you have a dead battery possibly from an alternator that failed.

What happens when the cambelt breaks while driving?

I have never heard of a cam belt. I have a 2000 Kia Sportage and the timing belt went out while I was driving. The engine stopped running,and I tried to start it back and it would not start. The engine would turn over and over but would not start. Found out after a four hundred dollar fuel pump it was a broke timing belt. these engines are contact / so when a timing belt breakes you ben the valves resulting in no compresion so the engine will not start until you replace all the valves and belt with setting up the timing
