Try looking for engine vacuum leak,around the injector seals inlet etc.Is the air box lid and hoses tight and leak free?Could also be fuel pressure problem Try squeezing the fiel return line with the appropriate tool so you dont damage it and see wether the engine idles properly.If idles better more than likely fuel pressure problem.

93 Deville, 4.9L, 113k miles. I'm a decent mechanic (have replaced engines, heads, etc.). The latest problem is an intermittent stall. The first time it happened the car was driven for 10 mins then...


Now you can do the Fuel Pump

They seize up mechanically and fail
Electrically

Did you drive with a fuel pressure gauge,
taped to the windshield

Got a good fuel filter

Looking won't help you

Always do some type of testing,
before replacing anything

Make sure you installed the correct TP sensor. If so you may have a bad one. I have gotten bad "new" parts before. If all your problems started with the installed part start there.
