Had lots of work done new fuel filter, spark plugs and wires, rotor and cap, oilchange and new belts, still would run fine but die once in a while like some one shut the car off, took it back to the shop and they said ign. Module which ment a new distrbutor at $400 had that done left the shop went 4 miles and it did the same thing, if I turn the key off after it dies it will start right back up most times but has once or twice had to wait a few minutes, just don't know what the next step is. Thank you

I wouldn't be too afraid about bringing it back. This part that was replaced senses the spinning camshaft. It is used in conjunction with a sensor on the back of the engine called a crankshaft sensor. It's not as expensive and will shut the car off. Maybe it's leaving a fault code now. If it was my job, I'd want it back. To find out so I could fix it, and learn.
