First make sure your air filter is clean. Or change it. Also check your idle air control valve. Make sure its not faulty. I wouldnt' rule out crankshaft sensor either; usually though you will have to let car cool for a while after it conks off. Check these three things out and get back to us
good luck buddy

Air filter is so-so, out now so not the issue.
I just checked and it looks like no spark to the plugs.
Going to check the dist cap and rotor and spark from the coil. Then time to get out the test light and trace the ign system. My old haynes manual has some pretty good info on checking that part.
Thanks for the prompt response and I'll keep you posted.

My experiences with thes is the TFI module, or distributor, usually it ends up as a bad ignition module tho.

Following the troubleshooting sections in the manual has led me to the same conclusion. I feel more comfortable with it now with your confirmation
I am going to go in search of a module. I think the local parts store can test them. Any idea on how reliable that test is or should I just " pony up" and pay for a new one? I don't think that they are real expensive.

Don't forget the Dielectric grease. It should come with a small tube, apply a thin coat on the mating surface to the distributor.

It did and that was the problem, the TFI module was bad. Now it runs.
