Check that you're getting spark to your plugs and fuel to your injectors. If so, my first guess would be to check your timing belt.

It sounds like it could be your brake booster starting to fail. The brake booster is Vacuum operated so it requires suction/vacuum from the engine. When the booster fails it allows the engine to **** all that air and it bypasses the carburator / fuel injection system so then it wants to quit as the wrong fuel and air mixture is getting into the engine.

Quick test - Remove the vacuum line from the brake booster and hold your thumb over the end of the line/ hose. You will feel the suction but when the hose is closed off the engine should run just fine. When the thumb is removed it will idle very rough and maybe even quit. DO NOT drive the car withouth the vacuum hose removed.

Your booster will look something like this When you open the hood and are looking at the firewall on the back of the engine compartment you will see it directly in front of the steering wheel area on the right side. The hose that you want to remove will have an end like this. It could be black or white.

If the booster is your problem, you may want to have a local shop do the install as it is involving your brakes. That is a huge safety factor and you want it done right.

Good Luck.

Why would I hear like a popping sound on rear drum brakes on a 1991 chevy lumina euro when stopping at slow speeds? Brakes work fine. Don't hear it when stopping at high speeds changed shoes drums

Check and make sure the rear axle bearing are good. One maybe going bad also check the universal joint on the drive shaft to make sure there is no wear there as well. Hope this helps.

It is one of 2 things fuel pump or Crank Shaft Position Sensor. Best bet would be the Crank Shaft Sensor, and what that does is tell the computer where the crank is and when to fire the right plug at the right time
