Why would your car shut off while you were driving and it will not start or turn over?

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.

Have someone check your fuel pump pressure,if you lose fuel pressure while driving,and then it comes back that would explain why it seems to start by itself.

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

If one of my tires suddenly lost pressure while I was driving, I would pull over as soon as possible and replace that tire with my spare tire.
