I have had my car in the shop 3 times now and they cleaned the fuel lines, replaced the control module and the iidle control valve. Then they cleaned the fuel injectors. It drove fine for a few days but it died again this morning while sitting at a light. And then it died again just as I was pulling into the parking lot at work. It usually starts up right away but sometimes I have to wait a few minutes before it will start again. I need this car to last me about one more year before I can afford a new car.
Do you

Hi. Im having some of the same trouble with my 92 topaz.I have to give it gas to start and it dies when I stop.1 thing thats cheap I would recommend is changing the fuel filter. This can sometimes be part of the problem. They only cost about 12bucks at autozone. Goodluck
