1992 Nissan Stanza

Shakes or Wobbles problem
1992 Nissan Stanza 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 180000 miles

I know my car has some serious mileage on it, but I cant afford to replace it. It's only been doing this recently but the engine keeps turning off. Sometimes it will be while I'm driving down the road, and after a couple tries, the engine does turn over. However, this last time after it finally started again, it only lasted about a block before dying again. I couldn't afford the shop bill and they couldn't guarantee that they even knew what was going on and if what they could do would fix it. They did mention something about a distributor cap at the shop. Could it be something worse?
