1992 Mazda MPV - Wont Start

A friend has a 1992 Mazda MPV a few days ago it just stalled in the middle of the road and it wont start again. The starter was replaced recently... Anyone know what might be the problem?

my car just stalled on me out of nowhere 2days ago... LOL in the middle of the street and i'll give you the same advice they gave me. check spark plugs/wires/dizzy/cap-rotor/ and battery date ? maybe the battery jsut died ?

the way i got my car running again was to jump start it using another car , and i had to give mine some gas but it eventually the car started up again. Haven't driven it yet, until i get all that stuff check that i just mentioned to you

you should try boosting the car and see where that gets you. does the car crank over at all or the lights dim?

Could be any number of things. Does it still turn over? Does it have spark? Does it have fuel? More info regarding the circumstances is needed.
