Please help! 87 mazda 323 wagon 5 spd. 4cyl. think fuel injected. starts , runs, but when put in gear and given gas it dies. If get it going down the road, it will go a ways until I have to stop for a stop sign than go to take off and it dies again.. Mech. says not a fuel prob. he replaced mass air flow something or other, but didn't help. He's lost on what it could be! Any info greatly appreciated........Kara

Try checking the intake air duct hose for cracks by running your hands around the hose paying attention to the groved areas, especially along the bottom. Common problem with these was cracking or splitting.
