See you in Anything Auto...

Check your plugs, fuel filter, distributor cap or ignition module. Get it scanned, OBDI might show something. Could be an O2 sensor, PCV valve, EGR valve...

Need more information on the symptoms like cold start and then stalls or while driving it just quits.

I used to have the same symptoms with my 87 Cutlass Ciera GT. (Don't laugh...it was stuffed with a 3.8L motor and went like hell.) My fix was a new ECU for about $400 and that was back in 1990.

With me, if I quickly shifted the car into neutral before coming to a full stop I could prevent a stall. Had to drive that way for months before I had the money for the repair.
