an engine size would help along with checking the computer for any trouble codes to check codes follow the instructions on autozones website on reading codes from the check engine light.

also would help to know if you are getting spark, and if you have no spark is the distributer rotor turning while the engine is being cranked over.

In order to troubleshoot the problem accurately, some things have to be tested during the actual problem. Any other time and everything will check out good. Trying to diagnose this any other way amounts to guessing and that is just not accurate by any technician.

You need to first test a few functions during the failure.

1) Test for spark at the plug end of the wire using a spark tester.
2) Test for injecter pulse using a small bulb called a noid light.
3) Use a fuel pressure gauge to test for correct fuel pressure.

Once you have determined which of these functions has dropped out,
you will know which system is having the problem.

I used to own a 90 LeBaron to 175K. I agree that thorough, methodical diagnostics are the way to go. But I'd like to offer a shortcut before investing in those three tools Desi recommended.

One weak spot for those vehicles is the set of relays on the inner fender well under the hood. They rarely outlast the life of the car. The fuel pump relay is easy to check. Turn the ignition to the ON position before START. You should hear the in-tank fuel pump energize for a second or two. If you don't, then either the relay is fried or the fuel pump is bad.

If you're a DIYer, you may also want to hook up with these guys: Allpar
