Hi, it's Glenn here, I can help you with your problem. Yes it does sound like an electrical problem. When you say "was gonna get new leads" I assume you mean spark plug leads. New leads probably won't fix the problem, if the plug leads were faulty the engine may run rough, but not stall altogether. But you certainly could try new leads first. It sounds to me like an engine management issue, which means maybe a sensor or ignition related problem. If that is the case it requires accurate diagnosis via the car's on board computer system. Any further questions, just ask, Glenn.
