I am really hoping someone can help me on this board. My 1991 (automatic) Toyota Corolla has not had any major problems up until now. Out of the blue, it stalled out on me on the highway. It lost power and did not want to go over 50 miles an hour. It then stalled. I was able to start it shortly thereafter and continued on my way without any problem. I took it to my mechanic who is good. He couldn't find any problems but he suggested a tune up. The tune up was done. Right after the tune up, I drove to work. I made it about 25 miles and the car stalled out on my as I pulled slowly away from a red light. I spent about an hour trying to restart without success. I called a tow truck and went back to the mechanic. He drove it away from the tow truck without a problem. He says he idled the car for quite a while and took it on some short trips. It never cut out on him. His educated guess was to replace the distributor. This was done. I drove a few miles home from his shop without a problem. I took the car on a short trip to run some errands..made several stops. On my way to the last stop, the car cut out on me again as I pulled away from a light. It started a short time later and made it home without a problem. Does anybody have any idea what could be wrong? I trust my mechanic. He can't seem to find anything. I am really hoping to save this car. It has been great until now. I believe it has about 119,000 miles or so on it.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
