Question about Pontiac Trans
I have a 1982 pontiac trans am recaro edition with a lu5 v8 5.0L Cross-Fire Injection engine and and having a couple of problems when you first start it it idles fine but the check engine light keeps flashing on and off and when you press the brake to put it in gear it shuts off and wont stay on again. i think it might be a vacuum problem or maybe the maf or something.
First, try a new accelerator pump. They're less than $10 and easy to install. On the side of the carburator, near the linkage. It's simple a small rubber diaphragm.

SOURCE: IDLE PROBLEM
Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

It should be a bolt-in. Check the overall length of the new transmission against the length of the old one. Sometimes the tail shaft can be different lengths and that may mean you will need a different driveshaft. If the difference is an inch or less you should be okay. Hope this helps.
