1993 Toyota Camry LE 6 Cyl 3.0L


Car will stop running and then after awhile will restart.

My daughter's car will stop running on her way to work but starts up again after a period of time. We went to a mechanic and he said that the number five
fuel injector was falling and flooded the engine.. We replaced it and the same problem occurred again but more fequently. I spoke to the mechanic and since he didn't have the diagnostic equipment for this car, he suggested that
maybe it was the distributor coil and ignitor. I replaced the distributor and the problem stopped for approx. 4 weeks. It started up again today. Any suggestion on how to diaginose the problem are what to look at?
All I want is a dependable car for my daughter.
