While driving down the road my car shut off and will not start. It has fuel, gets fuel and the engine turns over. I have replaced the distributor cap, rotor button and coil. Any other ideas what is wrong and how to fix?

You are going back in the years for me. I assume there is no spark. Is there an ignition module in the distributor? It is a small black rectangular box, maybe 2.5 inches long and about 1/2 in think.

Let me know.

If you lost spark, that would be my first suspect. It's been some years since I worked on these, but I do remember them going bad.
