1993 Ford Mustang engine stalls

  • 4 CYL
  • 2WD
  • 87,800 MILES
I have a 1993 mustang 4 cyl. Hatchback. My engine had stoped and would not start I finaly found out that the timing belt was bad I replaced the belt and now my car will stop while I am driving it. It may go for several miles with out a problem but then it will stall. I thought maybe it was the water in the gas I put dry gas and injector cleaner in the gas tank And drove maybe ten miles before it quit on me, It will start after a few minutes what should I look for
Do you
have the same problem?
