1993 Toyota Celica • 213,000 miles

I have a 1993 toyota celica gt
the car starts just fine but will not stay running ive checked the battery the connection even the floor mat behind the clutch. My mechanic cant tell me anything cause when he sees the car it doesnt act up typically after about an hour the problem goes away and it runs just fine till it decides to do it again but today this has been going on sence about 1pm. Please tell me whats wrong

I am going to give you a diagnositic walk through for your situation. I would pay special attention to electrical issues as you have some intermitant problem and that sounds electronic. When the diagnostic mentions pulling trouble codes or test like testing fuel pressure, Advance Auto and Auto Zone will tets electrical parts and pull codes for free. They also loan out specialty and test tools.
