Even if the engine responds to fuel sprayed into the intake, your car cold have a fuel or electrical problem; really could be either. It could be leaking fuel injectors flooding a hot engine. It could be a bad sensor: crankshaft position, cam position, or maybe even the engine coolant temperature. Might even involve ignition components, such as coil or igniter. Without actually seeing the car, it's not possible to say what the exact problem is. Did your mechanic look for codes? If so, that should give you some direction.
