My daughter has a '94 3 cyl Charade that stalls on long trips.
Seems OK just running around locally. If she sits and waits a few minutes it will start again and she can continue on. Sometimes without any more incident. I have changed the fuel filter which looked a bit yucky, but it is still doing it. Any suggestions gratefully recieved. I feel it is a fuel problem.

When it could not be started, you need to find out what is missing. It could be fuel or ignition sparks related.
The link below explains what to look for.

My car does that when I turne on the aircon it drained power from the engine and was making horrible sounds turns out it was the aircon pump. I would be driving and it would stall and drain the battery so yeah maybe have a look and see it that could be the problem
